It has been a while. Sorry for the less than 5 of you (and N8....please do not drop me) who actually read this but I have been out of town and did not have internet access. But I have a lot to say. I may break this up over a few posts. Let the reader beware.
It is so apparent to me how God is pointing things out. I have been reading several books and they are all showing me the same things. I was one who is missing the point. I have felt a huge transition in my life because I am embracing where God is directing my life and what that actually means.
Let me start with where I have been the last week. Last Sunday was awesome by the way. We heard the message once again shared in a way. Extremely life changing. I was loving myself playing keys for the worship team. And I got to be the guy to change the media from computer to video. A big job (a click of a button) but I was up to the task.
I left after the gathering time to head for Philadelphia, PA. It was a job related trip. I needed to head out to do some audio/video replacing of equipment. It is about 13 hours to drive from the Haven to Philly. So this is why I left on Sunday. I traveled alone - just me, a cargo van, some equipment and tools, am/fm/cd radio, and Jesus. What a trip. I made it as far as Elyria, Ohio before I hit the sack. I do not know if you have traveled the Ohio turnpike but it is boring. On the flip side, the pit stops along the way have Starbucks coffee. A huge plus. This gave me the opportunity to start some conversations and receive some new friends. A river moment from me was when an older couple was having some problems navigating their map. So they asked me if I had a moment to help out and I did. After a few minutes of helping out, I asked a few questions about them and engaged a little deeper. After a few, we were praying together and moved on our way.
I really feel like we need to stop and look for opportunities to engage - as the captain on Star Trek the next generation would say -. There are many God moments - river moments - that can happen if we would allow it.
