Don't waste a day!

Well have had a Good weekend. Went exploring in a town called Leavenworth it was a neat town slot of shops (Tara would of been in heaven). And lots of candy ( the girls would of been on overload) I walked around and then went up in the mountains and looked around saw some beautiful sights. I joined a health club because it was getting to hard to do p90x in the house the other guys probably wonder what I'm doing or the guys below might think I'm going to come through the floor.
Yesterday God convicted me of wasting time it's so easy to just wish this was over and I could go home and missthe real purpose for this. I started praying for God to show me what I could do to volunteer and serve so I found this ministry online called serve Mose lake. It's a organization of local churches that help those in need with many different things. I read up on it and thought that could be something that I could do and it would also be good experience for the vision God has given Tara and I for a ministry. Well I went to church and was looking for a Sunday school class to go to and a man I met the other day suggested I go to a class so I met the leader and we talked and I shared with him somethings God was showing me and he said he was on the board of a ministry that might interest me. I probably don't have to tell you what ministry it was yes it was serve Moses lake (God is so good). I'm actually having dinner with him and the director tomorrow night.
God continues to confirm Tara and I are right were we are suppose to be even if we don't know all the details. I've learned that God is not looking for people to work for Him but he wants people who will let Him work in and through them and also Gods work done Gods way will never lack Gods supply. I pray I can be that person.
Thank you for all your prayers and encouragement. Like Tara said we don't know His plan but He does and that is what gives us peace. I know this it must be good!!


  1. I like the title of this entry!! At my age, I really should consider taking your advice. : )
    How did the dinner go?

  2. Hey Matt and Tara,
    I have no idea exactly what is going on but I am so encouraged that as you two are apart I see you loving on and depending on the Lord. What could be better than that? He cares about EVERY single detail and all that your hearts are carrying. He is preparing you individually so that you can make an impact together. I've heard it said, God will never use you publicly until He has tutored you privately.
    I want you to know that I love you and am praying for God to reveal Himself to you in ways you never could imagine.
