I wrote this blog post back in 2009 and never published it.
A little over 90 days ago the door to the Church that I was created to Pastor finally opened. It should have opened much sooner (try years ago) but I got a little off track…so thanks be to God for His mercy and grace.
The first service I think we had about 8 people show up and frankly I was surprised that that many came. To tell you the truth It was more than a little surreal to be standing up there behind the holy desk, when just a few weeks ago I had been working on the sound board at the former Church I was serving at.
I went from sound man to Pastor with seemingly little fanfare, I mean it just happened.
So here 90 days later and its hard to put into words all that the Lord has done for us in this short time. The ministry gifts that He has sent to the Church to bless us. The revelation that He has deposited in my spirit and pull out of me on Sunday morning.
I can’t tell you how many time I’m just standing up there preaching and it will be like where in the world is this going? Scriptures are coming up in my heart that I didn’t even study for in the preparation the message are just coming out of my mouth, I’m off of my notes and I’m saying to myself, ok Holy Ghost how are you going to tie all this stuff together?
I’ve had to learn how to minister in a entirely different way. I pray, study, write out my little notes, but when I stand up I don’t know what is going to happen, I just open my mouth and He fills it.
