Things that have been on my mind this weekend..
1.It's God's fight, not mine.(2 Chronicles 20) My job is to praise him, to be obedient, and to give him all the glory. He will do the rest. That really makes me breathe more easily.
2.I took a girl that I know from my neighborhood pool to church with me. I noticed that she wasn't as in to it as I had hoped for. And then the guy that she brought with her went to the front of the church to receive Christ. It's not my job to make them have a great experience. It's my job to invite them. God will do the rest. Praise you, God.
3. My heart has been aching for those who are misled by false religion. I have been reading this blog , actually I read the whole thing yesterday, and I want to tell this girl not to throw Jesus away with the rest of her beliefs. I think that is a common occurrence, just to be so frustrated by being misled that you just give up on everything. I also found the link to this page documenting 20 facts about Mormonism on her page, and I found it very helpful. I almost want to start an outreach for those coming out of these types of situations. If God wants me to.
4. I want to be a counselor. I have put off going to school because I didn't know what career path was right for me. I am not hard-set on having a career, and certainly won't put a job above family, but I think maybe this would be the right choice for me..I like to listen to people's stories and give them (hopefully good)advice. I care about people. I would like to have comfy couches and maybe cookies at my place of business, make my own hours. So..we'll see.
5.Bible study started...next week? No one but Heather and I were there tonight, but we had a good prayer time and were able to solidify some goals and thoughts we had on our group. I know in God's timing he is going to use this group to drastically change lives and I am so grateful to be an extension of his love to those who are dying (I know, it's harsh) without it. So,here I go waiting. Again. God's Bible study. Not mine.
6. Handing over the reins leaves your hands free to do other stuff. Also, God won't drive you off the side of a cliff.
