Well, now that the week-long “experience” of Local Pastor’s Licensing School is complete, I can focus on my upcoming church appointment, and start preparing myself for the task at hand.
Physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally I believe that I am as ready as I will ever be; even though I am STILL exhausted from those seven days of sitting and absorbing hours of classroom studies and also preparing an original sermon (that I gave before my peers)…I know that this is exactly where God wants me, and HAS wanted me, for a long, long time.
And I am thankful to those who have stood by me during this process; my loving and devoted wife, Jeannie Marie; my kids; my church family; and most of all, my loving Father. It is a blessing, and an honor and privilege, to be able to be a shepherd for God’s people. I only pray that I can be that open, and willing vessel, that can be totally used for God’s glory.
In just a little over one month from now, a new phase of the ministry journey begins. Praise be to God!!! 🙂
