Today is the day to wrap up a lot of details. Tomorrow we fly out to Oklahoma City. Our daughter there is being ordained as a pastor in their denomination. She has been a children’s pastor for the past several years at their church. She has felt if this is the case she should complete her degree for being a pastor. She has a teaching degree already but God placed this on her heart and she has finished. It will be touching to attend this with her and her family.
With all the things I want to get finished today I was taken back when I asked God what He wanted me to know for today? He simply said, “to be”. I have always been driven to do. In the strength finders material, responsibility is the top of my list of strengths. I see this and think that this strength is all about doing and doing well. Yet, I write this and realize to do one must be. I do believe the two go hand in hand but the be is ahead of the do. Today I will do my best to stay in touch with the be side of this. God is wanting me to know something I need to pay attention to.
Tomorrow morning we leave at 6:00 am for the airport so I may not get a blog written. I’ll see what happens early in the morning–already I’m thinking about doing–yikes. I’m going back to be and try to stay there. I think some of this is about obeying God’s nudges when they happen rather than my nudges. God is so good and I want to be with Him in His Kingdom Work only doing what He nudges me to do. To God BE all Glory!
