Well I woke up and didn't really know were I was going to go to church. I got in the truck and drove He led me to a church called grace harvest church. The people there were friendly and the praise and worship was good and very contemporary A young couple gave their lives to Christ it was very inspiring and they were very humble I learned that obeying God is an act of love.
After the service was over I felt God had something else for me so I drove around and I felt God lead me to another church that was meeting in a middle school the church was called Lake Valley Baptist. I met some really nice people who I could tell loved the Lord. The praise and worship was the exact opposite they sang from song books it was traditional and very real. The pastor had a very humble heart and the message he brought was very good. It spoke to me it was on exhorting those around you and to do the ministry God has given you He said exhorting is calling or pulling others close to you. I needed that. Also two young people gave their lives to Christ praise God.
I then had a good time studying Him word and just spending time with Him. I realize this is the only way I'm going to get through this time away. I miss Tara and the girls so much if I didn't have The Lord I would not make it.
I went back to Lake Valley tonight and the message was right on target. It was on 1 Tim 4: 1-16. Godliness is profitable for all things Dont neglect the gifts God has given you because of situations or any thing else. I know at times I neglect the gifts because I feel sorry for myself or things don't go my way. There are people all around us that that are deflated by the things in their lives our job as Christians is to let our lives help them inflate we do this by being real and walking in Gods spirit. I hope I haven't rambled to much I ask you continue to pray for Tara and I that we can focus on the good and not what we don't have.
This is much harder then either of us could of imagined and the only way to learn what we need to learn is to stay focused on Gods plan. This week let your life inflate someones balloon that is deflated
