I have a problem. A serious problem. This weekend, The Sanctuary, my church is doing an outreach to the community. We’re volunteering to help the township in which we meet with their annual summer picnic. I have to fill about 12 slots per hour for 5 hour.
Wanna know my problem? We have
42 45 volunteers. For a church that runs between 60 and 70 people per week on average. So many people volunteered to be the church that day that I don’t know what to do with all of them. God is awesome.
Funny thing. This has been probably, decidedly one of the most difficult weeks that I have had in a long, long, long time. I’m exhausted. Work has been difficult. Home has been difficult. I feel like I’ve been walking uphill in an oxygen deprived environment.
“Problems” like this one are the reason that I get up in the morning. I love seeing what God is doing. I love that God will allow me to be a part of this thing that He’s doing in NJ even though most of the time I feel more like Jonah than a disciple. I can’t wait to see what God is going to do…tonight, tomorrow and this weekend.
But…like Chill Pastor challenged today, I’m living in this moment, today, now, not tomorrow or the next day or yesterday.
