A New Job

Jenny and I have been married a month!  I am very thankful that it didn't take very long to find a job in Austin.  It is hard not preaching, but right now I am exactly where God wants me to be. My job is working with four guys who have mental disabilities.  They all live together in a house and I am one of the staff that help them live as independently as possible.

It might be quiet for the next couple of days as I adjust my time with my new work schedule.  As always thanks for reading.

Welcome to Texas Paul and Jenny. I am thankful for you both, that God met your need for a job. There is a purpose for this job and this move you have had to make. You will excel as a caregiver Paul. Consider this just a short sabbatical from preaching. Wish there was an opening for a pastor here in Lubbock, Texas within your denomination. The church I attend has no pastor right now. I go to the First Church of the Nazarene. You are a very good preacher. I listened to all your sermons when you put them here on the blog. You will preach again. Patience. God has a wonderful plan for you and Jenny and your future. Blessings to you always.
Your friend in Christ, Sandra

Being right where you believe you belong is very important. I love that place because I believe that there is a time and place in God's plan. He is detailed. He doesn't just mess around. I pray that you will fulfill all the purpose you need to while you're doing what you're doing, and as you honor God with your obedience may He be glorified.

Thanks for the welcome Sandra, though I am afraid that I didn't move to Austin, TX but to Austin, MN the home of SPAM. So about the confusion.

It is amazing the sense of peace I have felt since moving to Austin. There is no place I would rather be right now.

Prayer: Married Bedtime Prayer

My wife Jenny and I have been using the Bedtime Prayer that John Eldredge wrote for Walking with God as part of our bedtime routine.  As much as I have enjoyed the prayer I thought it was time for a prayer that was better suited to pray together.  Hopefully this will encourage you to implement prayer into your bedtime routine.

Our Father in Heaven, we pause at the end of this day to say thank You.  We give You thanks for the blessing of life, for the blessing of each other, for the blessing of family, and for the blessing of a home. You have richly blessed our lives. Restore us Father to Your Son Jesus.  He is the vine and we are the branches and He has become our source of life.  Open our hearts to receive the Holy Spirit's guidance, healing, and transformation.  May our lives and our marriage bear the fruit of the Spirit.  We surrender our lives and our marriage to You.  You have our bodies, possessions, and spirits; we give You our hearts, souls, minds, and strength.  We belon…

God Uses Unlikely People

One of the things that strike me about God is that the value society has given to people makes no difference to Him. In fact it seems that God would rather use the common, even the despised, people of the world to make a difference in this world. Consider Moses. God doesn’t use Moses when he is a prince of Egypt, but when he is a nomadic shepherd. Certainly God has used the rich and the powerful, but more often than not God has used the poor, sinful, and abused. God uses the unlikeliest people.

This reality comes our loud and clear at Christmas time. Think about the major characters of the Christmas story: Joseph who is a poor and scandalize carpenter, Mary who is a young and scandalized girl, Shepherds who are a bunch of untrustworthy characters. Only the Magi have credibility in society, but this diminishes in Jewish culture since these men were Gentiles. The most important event in the history of the world and God chooses people who are rejected and wouldn’t be believed by so…

Worship is a Lifestyle

"It's a lot easier to sing a song than it is to stop and touch the broken. It's a lot less taxing to go to church than to take 'church' to the world. But sharing with others is a sacrifice of worship that makes God smile." ~ Louie Giglio; The Air I Breathe

Worship isn't just about music. Worship isn't just an activity that is planned and programmed. Worship is about glorifying God with our lives. When we seek to honor God, we worship Him.

Worship happens anytime and anyplace. It happens Sunday mornings at church. It happens Wednesday night at Bible Study. It happens when we chat with our neighbor. It happens when we serve those in need. It happens when we show love to the lonely. Worship is what being a Christian is all about.

Worship is a life lived in response to God's gracious blessings. God has given us so much. We owe Him every breath we breathe. He is responsible for our talents we use. God has given us blessing after blessing. Only a life o…
