Not much. I'm really excited about our new Sunday school theme on the Holy Spirit. It was actually an answer to prayer. I've been thinking a lot about that lately and have a lot of questions. What does the Holy Spirit really do in a believers life? What happens when an individual or church is totally controlled by the Holy Spirit? What is the evidence of the Spirit's working in one's life? One thing I already learned was that when the Holy Spirit moves, nobody can control what happens. What does it really mean to have a passion and fire for God?
Lately I've been feeling like God is preparing me for something bigger. Whether now or later, or what it is, I don't know. But I do know that whatever it is, it's not going to be easy. Today was where I knew that I really had to say, "Lord, if you want to use me, wherever that may be, I'm ready. Father, send me." I think today's the first time that I actually sincerely meant it. It's much easier said than done, but in the centre of God's will is the best place to be, and there's where the greatest blessing is.
I've been seeing this past week that God might just have a very different plan for me this year than I thought. I see myself doing some sort of missions work, but I always keep thinking not now. I need to finish my schooling first. Maybe God has something for me much sooner than I think. Learning to wait on the Lord.
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he will strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
