I’ve had a great weekend, mainly because we had no big projects going on and no place we had to be. I got to spend some great times with Jennifer and the kids. Also, because of the ice and snow this morning, both church and evening youth meetings were canceled. I was able to catch the service online this morning at Seacoast on their new Internet Campus. I really like how their pastor handled the Calvinism vs. Arminianism debate. I enjoyed something different this weekend.
I’ve spent a lot of time this weekend thinking about some tough issues. I find myself too easily becoming frustrated when I focus in on problems. I need to trust God and know that He will work out the problems, but knowing when to push through and when to wait is tough. And that brings me to another reason I love youth ministry. Tonight, out of the blue, I got an email from one of the youth just telling Jennifer and me how much we are appreciated. Youth are sincere and I love them for it. The timing was perfect, so thanks. I needed some encouragement this weekend. God knows what I need and when I need it. The time with the family and the email were definitely divine guidance for what I am struggling with.
