I am truly a blessed man, yet more often than not I don’t fully understand. How many of us can say this? My guess would be hopefully all of us. The reason I say this is because when I only begin to wrap my mind around the latest thing God has done in my life, “BAM” out of nowhere he does something even greater. I pray that our God keeps you in awe like he does myself.
As you all know, I am getting married on June 21st to my beautiful fiancé Emily from Melbourne, Australia. Last Saturday while her and I were at our marriage counseling session the Lord spoke to me in a truly humbling way. When the session adjourned the Pastor said “Mike, I have something to ask you and I know you will pray about it.” I said, “go ahead Pastor.” He said Mike, “I would like you to be the youth Pastor of the church.”
I was speechless, immediately after he asked me my heart began to overflow with joy. I didn’t know what to say other than I would pray about it:) Well, that afternoon I went home and I began to pray fervently with great humility. Well, only a few days later the Lord confirmed, and the next day another confirmation.
Tonight after work I called the Pastor and told him I would accept the position the Lord placed on his heart to offer me. Honestly, I am truly grateful for all things. I thank the Lord for everything he has given me in my life. Matthew 6:33 says; Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. This is so true my friends, seek the Lord each and everyday, soon as you open your eyes in the morning say hello and speak your heart. You will be truly amazed what it will do for your day, remember, the Lord goes before us:)
I would like to ask you to pray for me. Pray that the Lord will make me the best Youth Pastor that I can possibly be. I give God all glory, honor, and praise. God bless you all.\
