11th Hour Preacher Party: Coming down the home stretch...
...of the Bread of Life passages;
...of Vacation Bible School, daycamp, or other special ministries and programs;
It seems like it's the "wrapping things up" time of year and we are starting to make the transition from one season to another. I find it a hard time because my mind is already more focused on what is coming than what is here now. My prayer today is for the Spirit to focus me (focus us) on the Word God has for us to preach this day. I truly pray that will happen (between the workout at the gym, playing with the kids, cooking for a staff-hosted party for some congregation members, hosting/serving at that party...).
Hmmmmm...my schedule seems to be working against my own prayer.
What do you need today as you are preparing to preach the Word, pray with the church, lead the worship of the children, or any and every other kind of ministry? What's wrapping up that needs your attention now? Where will the Spirit focus your attention?
