Projects, Plans and God

It is hard to believe but we are going into 2 years away from regular ministry.  Sure I’m doing the childrents ministry coordinator thing, and while it is ministry my heart is not in it.  I love the kids and the people but it’s not who I am. 

I have been praying for a while now about what to do, and where to go.  We are looking at a change coming soon and so I want to know what that change will be, enter an old friend.

They want to mother a church in a college town in WV.  J and I have both said that I will not be a staff pastor any more.  It’s time to move on in some way and I have great ideas and ways of reaching a generation for Christ.  The real problem is the fear factor in all of it. 

I want to be open and I believe that God brings people and places into our lives in such a way that we can and will be able to see clearly what he wants.  I don’t for a minute believe anything happens by chance.  When this friend of mine and I connected again I had no idea what could be coming.  Now I wonder if it’s time to try something totally different, totally new.  I want to be in Gods will and I want to step but I am afraid. 

The past is a specter that looms large.  God has changed me a lot and I am a different person, at the same time will others see that.  I believe I can do this and succeed at it, the question remains will people from before believe I can or will they say it will never work, and does it really matter?

  1. Sometimes God’s plans aren’t always “our” plans for ourselves….and often times they aren’t comfortable, but the key is trusting him. Don’t be afraid to step…if this is what he wants for you, he’ll work everything out. Merry Christmas! 🙂

  2. If you feel the Lord is in it, Aaron…then jump! God will carry you through it, and if you don’t you’ll be more miserable for not trying and always wondering “what if” and giving into the fear of than if you did try and failed. My favorite saying is “A success is a failure who never gave up…” You know who you are and what you are capable of. Don’t let the devil or past steal your future….
