I was made for this

If you've never had an I-was-made-for-this moment, then I'm sorry for you. I had one on Monday and another one yesterday. I was doing ministry; I was being God's hands and voice to people. All I can say is that is what I was made to do. I can't give you the details of the ministry that I was doing, but the words I said came from God and I was used by him for his work.

Go ahead and argue with me about how God doesn't speak to us except through the Bible. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit will control us and gives us strength to do ministry and words to speak on God's behalf. There is nothing greater than being controled by the Spirit and getting to watch God do his thing.

I was made for this.

at first I thought you were saying, I was made fun of for this moment. I kept reading thinking, yes this is awesome James was made fun of.

But anyway that is cool man, I love when that stuff happens.

Sometimes I think God should have a blog. If he were a member of Blogger.com, I think he'd read your blog. :)

i think he reads all of our blogs... i really do...

we juuuuust had a conversation about this on tuesday at homefellowship. asking God to speak through us and then being amazed by the wisdom that comes out of our mouths, or literaly hearing Him answer our prayers.

God is soooo good.

and i'm honored to blog with people who are willing to admit it.

you made me think of this cs lewis quote:
"Are not all lifelong friendships born at the moment when at last you meet another human being who has some inkling (but faint and uncertain even in the best) of that something which you were born desiring . . . ? You have never had it. All the things that have deeply possessed your soul have been but hints of it--tantalising glimpses, promises never quite fulfilled, echoes that died away just as they caught your ear. But if it should really become manifest--if there ever came an echo that did not die away but swelled into the sound itself--you would know it. Beyond all possibility of doubt you would say 'Here at last is the thing I was made for.'"

jon and i had that on the front of our wedding program.
