Psalm: 106:1-18
Old Testament: 1 Samuel 10:17-27
New Testament: Acts 7:44-8:1a

Praise the Lord!
O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures for ever.
Who can utter the mighty doings of the Lord,
or declare all his praise? (Ps. 106:1-2)

As I was thinking about what to post this morning……I am literally at a loss for words. As some of you may have noticed, my blog posts have been sporadic at best…but that’s not because of anything bad…..quite the opposite actually. πŸ™‚

For the first time in a very long while……things have been falling into place…and I have no idea why. Half of my brain expects the bubble to burst any second……but for right now…..right this minute….life is good. πŸ™‚

On a knee-jerk reaction……I could say that it’s the result of a new relationship I am exploring…..but as a whole, that piece (although wonderful :D) is far too new to be the root cause.

It’s more than that. My “jobs” such as they are….are taking off…..I find myself in faith communities that both stretch my abilities and embrace me as a whole person :P.

Granted, the roles in ministry I have right now still cause worry…but worry in a different way. I don’t worry about whether I can bring the Gospel message…..

Instead, I find myself worrying about what is the best way to do it??? What is the way that will most effectively speak to those I serve???

Anxiety is present…..but it’s anxiety mixed with excitement….it’s very hard to describe…..

Today I am reminded…..God is good <3….and we need to praise him in the happy times, along with those times we feel like Jonah in the belly of despair. πŸ™‚ +
