Friday – It Was To Be a Quiet Day

The original plan for today was to attend a men’s meeting at the local church here in Butler, Ohio. Not to minister – just to listen and then later share my impressions with the pastor. Here’s the “now” schedule… reports and social media from 7:00 to 9:00; meeting with Pastor Jamie and his wife Ruth (Overcomers’ Christian Church, Mt. Vernon, Ohio) from 9:00a to 1:00p; talking with my mentor from 3:00 to 5:00p; working with Pastor Joe and his wife (Overcomers’ Church) in their home as I meet leaders and minister to them 5:00 to 11:00p This is how it goes. You come with a planned schedule and it always – I repeat, always – changes.

It will be a busy but good day. And, it will be better if you pray and ask God to guide and direct in detail all the activities – planned and unplanned – that I will be involved in. I want this day to count. There are three things you can do with your time – waste it, spend it, and invest it. I want today to be an “invest” day.

Please pray for Saturday as well – early breakfast with a youth pastor, a mid-morning Starbucks with my mentor and another minister who runs a very effective outreach through a coffee bar and cafe; and then, in the evening a meeting with the elders and their wives (social and business). Of course, this too is subject to change and additions.

    May the Holy Spirit always be around, on and in you as you go about doing what the Lord has called you to do. Only one called can do what is necessary. Each of us has been through certain furnaces of affliction so as to come out the other side prepared and equipped to help others in the same situations. I see very clearly that what most people need is not another alternate way to help themselves, they need JESUS. We are the only ones to point them to Him. Bless you in your day and yes the Lord will see to it that His time table is followed.
