The past 6 months have flown by. Leslie and I have been busy with our little guy, and we are having the time of our lives. Ministry is busy, and we are getting adjusted and settled at Parkway Baptist Church.
Tomorrow, Leslie and I will celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary. It is truly unbelievable to us. In some respects, it feels just like yesterday we were dating. In other respects, it feels like a lifetime ago, as we have followed the Lord on several ministry opportunities that have grown and stretched us, for His glory.
Life is that way, isn't it? I find it fascinating that things feel like they are go quickly and slow at the same time. Why is that? Does it feel fast because we get busy with life? Does it feel slow because of the day to day?
In my 36th year of life i'm learning many things.
The greatest thing I'm learning that I need Jesus. Not in a "pray of prayer/make a decision" way. I'm speaking of real life, nitty gritty, everyday life. I need Jesus. I'm learning that I cannot understand how people who do not have Jesus survive in this life. Jesus motivate and inspires me to tell more people about his majesty, and not get as much of a hurry. He inspires me to rest in His grace, and to show that grace to others.
The reality is that we are all just ragtag people, in desperate need each day, each hour, each minute, of a Savior. I'm so grateful for Jesus.
I hope He is real in your life, as He is in mine.
