Life for me right now is more of a faith journey as it has been since my time in Kenya when I lived in tents, ate whatever the locals fed me, and each day was filled with new adventures with Jesus. However, in Kenya I only had myself and team to watch after and it was just for a month. Now I am a husband, father, and pastor. Being full-time in the ministry is a blessing it allows me to dedicate my full attention to my charge, and not have two different and huge time obligations. I do not miss longing to be more open about my calling, and regretting not being able to devote more time to it.
Be that is it may, this is still a faith walk for many reasons one being because the income is not the same. I took a huge cut in pay to go full-time in ministry and now just recently have been blessed with a new baby. God is so awesome. He still provides for me today as He did yesterday. The church has grown in membership and ministries. Each day I am growing deeper in the Lord, constantly being purged by His Holy Spirit, and witnessing His grace always. I often times do not know how I am going to make it, but He always seems to come through. I have a truly remarkable wife who believes in the Lord and loves me. I have two wonderful boys that bring me unspeakable joy. I have family and friends who pray for me without ceasing. I have my health and strength and I pastor a church filled with immense potential. God has truly blessed me. So I am rich, blessed and highly favored through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Hence, my verse for today particularly the embolden part is for myself, I pray that it blesses you as well.
Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches.
7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. 9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
