You won't believe what God helped me think about this morning....or will you?
On October 3rd Memorial will have its annual budget Sunday sort of day. The ritual is rather simple really. We have me get up and preach on giving and the people give and we have a most privileged year of God's labor and harvest.
A combination of feelings rushes over me. On one hand I delight in speaking of the greatest "best kept secret" on earth--that of giving-- and yet I carry a personal burden for so much of Memorial's work is dependent upon my ability to persuade of God's process. I am not unduly important; the message is.
So I was having coffee this morning at one of my four shops and God gave me an instant great idea! That Sunday I plan to speak on The Parting of the Red Sea. What a great story because it involves the fantastic move of God for a people who didn't know how to handle such a gigantic dilemma.
Today so many are cornered by a sea of red ink....highly indebted....and don't know how to escape. God has a way to Part this Red Sea.
Good, you think? I can't wait to get there to see what He puts together!
