Sunday (Monday) Confessional

I confess that I remembered to write this yesterday in the morning, and then forgot about it until I was about to fall asleep.  I chose falling asleep over getting up and writing it, so I apologize that sleep came first in my order of importance.

I confess that Abigail and I went out with a group of friends, without our kids, for the first time since being in Northern Ireland.  Pastor Ruth came over and watched our kids for us.  I confess that we had an awesome time, and we are so thankful for the opportunity.

I confess that I had the opportunity to preach a sermon yesterday.  I spoke on the part of the Lord’s prayer where it says “Give us this day our daily bread”.  It was a strange sort of dichotomy in my heart, where on one side I was grateful to preach, and on the other I felt a sort of “O Lord what sinner am I to speak to others?”  I confess that my prayer was for God to speak through me, and I understand that the only reason I am able to preach at all is because I have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus.

I confess that on Friday some friends took us to W5, which is the coolest children’s museum I have ever seen!  Afterward, we had a delicious Northern Irish dinner with them.  I then went to play squash with a different friend.  I confess that I am still sore three days later, but I have a new found love of squash. I confess that I feel like I should be able to not work out for a long time and then play a sport and feel fine the next day, the same way I would have felt in high school. I confess that’s not how it works anymore.

I confess that everyday we are here is a blessing, and I feel like we are getting to live more and more into God’s mission.  I confess that every activity is as it should be for the Christian. Ministry.  I confess that Jesus Christ is my Saviour (like the British spelling?). I confess that I am daily falling deeper in love with God and His people.

I made my confession (a little later). Now go make yours!

  1. I confess that God is good and can work through all of us for his purpose and to his Glory. Humble and seek ye shall find and we shall all benefit from your calling to God’s will. God bless!
