I heard in church today that one of my high school friends had lost her dad. He had an operation a couple of months ago and he just didn't get better.
And I have a friend who is fighting her second summer of breast cancer treatments, and this time, she has asked for a driver and has had mostly a different one each day for her series of 5 days a week...this week is her end of that and then she moves to chemo. I think of all the people who she has touched on such a different level because of this. The illness has given her the push to be way more honest than some people dare. She is not afraid to just tell it like it is. And she knows that God is with her every step of the way and she gives him credit for all that is good in her life.
I have a question in my heart sometimes whether I'm where God wants me, doing what he wants me to do...and so I pray and I hang on and I keep on keepin' on. God will move me where he wants, I just have to be quiet and listen. Anyone else have trouble keeping quiet long enough to hear the still, small voice?? Waiting for the thunder instead???
Praying this week and beyond for the new pastor(s) in our church. A call has gone out and the couple is prayerfully considering it. I like that. I want my new pastor(s) to ask their "REAL" boss where they are supposed to be. So many people are fired up about this couple. I am good with them, but I also respect that they are listening for the still small voice ...the God Positioning System to put them where he wants them.
