On top of that we have experienced the joy of our third grandchild’s birth, the marriage of our youngest son, our middle son clearing a major hurdle in his career, and my father battling cancer.
On a weekly basis I meet with several men to look at the Scripture together and work with another man’s ministry to support him in what he is doing. All of the stuff in the Bible and with thes men are things I really enjoy. I am honored to be able to work with the people in the Bible conference and looking forward to see what God is going to do there.
But I am tired. The circumstances of our life in the past eight months as conspired to get me in that state. So I am looking at this week, last minute stuff for two days on an airplane, thirty six hours of instruction, and 24 hours on a plane back, and the weariness was winning. Then I read Psalm 100:2, the first phrase, “Serve the Lord with gladness…” and I remembered. Yeah, I am glad, excited, privileged, and honored to be able to serve Him in this manner.
That is one of the things I appreciate about the Word. It reminds me and reorients me through the turbulence of life.
