He Came Through For Me

Last week I was worried because I hadn’t found a speaker for our youth day at church. It had gotten to the point where I was about to call my pastor and let him essentially “have it” and voice my opinion about me doing his job. That’s not something I get paid to do. But, I guess I’ll save that speech for next month, b/c my brother came through for me.

Kristopher did an awesome job speaking yesterday at church. If you’re wondering, no, it wasn’t a sermon but more like a discussion. He involved the congregation and got everyone talking about our church and the challenges we face. He invited me to discuss with him, but I didn’t say much, it really was all him. He showed maturity that often goes unrecognized and spoke very intelligently. Not only did he speak well, but he volunteered to do the children’s story and it was one that both the children and adults learned from. I am proud of him and thank him for what he did for me/us yesterday.

The Lord Is Not Slack

Sabbath Scripture

2 Peter 3:9 

  9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

All of us are used at some point in our lives, but now I’m a lil tired of being used. Here’s the scoop: My pastor informed me at the beginning of the year that we would have a youth day every month on the fourth Saturday. Now you would say, “that’s cool, so what?” Well, the kicker comes when he suggests that I be in charge of putting these programs together and selecting a speaker. If I’m not mistaken, “Isn’t that his job?” Doesn’t he get paid to beg recruit prospective speakers and invite them in “his” pulpit?

The first two months I was okay with finding speakers, but now notsomuch. My mood can sometimes change with the wind. I feel pressured and this month, because I’ve only been in my home church once, I feel rushed. With me feeling like this, it’s not a good sign for me, the pastor, or the upcoming church service.

What am I to do? I’m not even certain I’ll be in town this Saturday. I hope I have an epiphany or something soon. It’s not looking good though.
