Life Goes On
This is my first blog post employment. Actually I'll be at the church officially for another week and a half, but, for all practical purposes, I'll be using that time to pack the office, and clean out the clutter. I think I've finally come to terms with the fact that for the first time since high school, I soon will not be gainfully employed. That is kinda scary. However, I've been reading in 2 Samuel about some of the experiences that David went through (some of his own making) and I'm beginning to get a better grasp of how God works in the midst of adversity. I"ve also been praying and meditating through the 23rd Psalm. I'm especially intrigued by the passage, "He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies; He anoints my head with oil; my cups runs over.". James Maxwell interprets that to mean that God Himself will vindicate us by blessing us in the presence of those who have mis-used us. I like that. As a matter of fact, I'm counting on it.
