Things are going well these day! The depression is almost non-existent 🙂 The MS is still in remission, with only a few lingering symptoms (some muscle stiffness and a little tingling in my left arm).
I’m officially licensed as a minister through the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel! I can officially perform weddings and funeral and such in the state of Missouri. Plus I’m recognized in my denomination as a minister and get lots of support and resources through them. Pretty awesome. After this, in a couple of years I can apply to be licensed Internationally then a couple of years after that Ordained. No, I don’t plan on having my own church someday, just missions.
3 shots down, 2 more to go for Africa. My poor arms! Tetanus, Meningitis & Polio were done Wednesday, Typhoid next Monday, then Flu on Oct 1. So far no side effects, only a little soreness from the tetanus shot. Then there’s the anti-Malaria pills when I get ready to leave. Still gotta get the waiver for the Yellow Fever vaccination too. Geez!
I’m reading a book by A. W. Tozer called The Pursuit of God. It’s really good! Did you realize God is ALWAYS there, ALWAYS speaking, and EVERYTHING can be sacred? He wants constant fellowship with us, a really, personal relationship. If we turn our attention to Him, He’s ready to meet us there. Overwhelming and exciting. The Maker of the Universe cares about every aspect of my life, and your life and your life…. x6 billion. Wow.
From Tozer, “Neither does place matter in this blessed work of believing God. Lift you heart and let it rest upon Jesus and you are instantly in a sanctuary though it be a Pullman berth or a factory or a kitchen. You can see God from anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him”
Anywhere, anytime, He is there waiting for your attention. He loves you that much! And He is worthy of that much.
One thought on “Things are good!”
