But I also got to meet with another pastor and discuss partnering our two churches in the planting of a new congregation in Newton County, IN. Saturday afternoon, I was able to meet with the budding core group for that new campus/congregation. In the evening Stephnie and I got to visit with one of the core families from the church we planted in Bolingbrook, IL some 23 years ago.
These two friends are some “battle-tested saints” who know the glorious joys of trusting God in the hard times of life. They know that God’s provisions are sometimes miraculous and sometimes mundane, sometimes less than we expected and sometimes more, sometimes just in time and sometimes after the time we desire, sometimes in wrapping we didn’t expect and sometimes in wrapping we never desired or wanted but that God’s provisions are nevertheless, ENOUGH. Always, enough
It is 4:16 AM and I want to sleep but the Spirit of God has my body and mind wide awake for reasons I cannot fathom. He is telling me,
“Enough. You have had enough sleep for now,
come away and be with me for awhile.”
So, I will rejoice and open the Book and eat the word of God till he has told me what he desires of me.
