Lord Lift Me Up…

OK…


I’m am finally getting the willies (old dude speak for FREAKING OUT) about this having a Church service to orgainze every week. We have less then one week!


I just finished one of the videos for the introduction and I can’t stop touching it. I want it to be perfect. But that ain’t going to happen.


I pray everytime I think of it that if this is not for Jesus that he will let it die or kill it. But that ain’ happening either.


Do we have the right concept? Do we have the right people? Will the Lord trust us with much or a little? What if people are mean to each other? Will the music ROCK! What if we seem amatuer and misguided and this turns someone off to the message of Jesus forever? What if I THINK I have more power then I have over the whole thing and don’t stop worrying?


I know that if it is of God he will make it grow with or without me. But I want to go along for the ride. I want to be part of the growing of the body of Christ. I want to see the abandoned realize that they were always welcome home. I want to see the thristy drink from his well. I want to help him dry the tears. I want to share the shout of joy with my brothers and sisters. I want to grab ahold of someone like me 23 years ago and let them know that there is a BETTER way, that Jesus is REAL, and that God knows all about what really happened and he Loves them anyway.


I want to find the Joy of the Lord more often with people and the sorrow of this lost world less often. Lord, help me find your Joy.


Pray for Me Brothers and Sisters,


Todd

The body of Christ will never grow if the Pastor is the one using his gifts to MAKE IT grow through some cool program or inspiring turn of a phrase.

    Todd, thank you for the sent prayer. I’m praying for you as well..and this new service. I know it is hard to not worry about a very big thing. Yes, the music, the power point, all that helps with the service. However, it’s the love that you pour out to others. Willing to be there to listen and to pray. Having open doors and open hearts to introduce others to Christ. It is great that you want everything to go soo smoothly, and I’m sure that the Lord is delighted in all of your efforts. However, God is Huge…with or without the multimidea, He will move, as long as you are faithful. By having this opportunity and getting it ready, it seems to me that you have been. Blessings!
