I am thankful for a productive day and looking forward to a productive week in the Lord if I am receptive to His will and His leading. Here are the details. I share them with you because I want to be vulnerable and real with you, and I need your prayers.
Today I was privileged to teach Sunday school for one of the senior men’s classes. We were studying in the book of Mark, chapter two, and focusing in on the fact that Jesus has the authority to forgive sins. It was a great discussion, so much so that I am still trying to process what all was brought out in class. It was awesome. (Of course, talking it all over with Karen just reinforced it all and opened up new ideas for her. Praise the Lord.
We are also both excited that this week we are expecting to get our car back from the body shop. The loaner (rental) is nice, but it doesn’t belong in our carport. Our Rav4 belongs there.
As part of the process, we want to make sure that all paperwork is clear and complete, and that all that needs to be done with the car, insurance, rental, documentation, and who knows what else, will be done. We want this behind us, and we are so ready to move on.
Spiritually, the heart of the battle for me is to get personally closer to Jesus and to either rest and/or move in His presence. The challenge in the sermon was “Do you know God?” I do, but possibly more on a head level than on a heart level.
Please pray that God gives us clear direction and insight into all things practical and spiritual this week and that our priorities will be Christ-driven and Christ led.
May the Lord’s mercy and grace be on us all and prosper us in body, mind, and soul.
