Meet Sheree Shannon. She is the newest addition to my blog roll, but she is also a dear friend that my wife and I have known for years. I encourage you to check out her blog. Sheree is a faithful woman of God with a wonderful family. She and her husband Dave have made a profound impact on my life and I appreciate them both.
Blind faith…that is what is carrying me into tomorrow mornings service. I’m really not sure what the origin of the expression “deaf, dumb, and blind” is, but it seems fitting in a way for me. It was my intent to begin teaching a new series tomorrow, one that follows the current series from lifechurch.tv. But, I have to say that God’s voice has been deafening this week. I really feel like God was saying that is not the direction we need to go tomorrow. Normally before I teach, I do a great deal of preparation. I study and try to learn as much as I can about whatever the topic might be. But, tomorrow I go in dumb…trusting in the wisdom of God’s Holy Spirit to guide me. All I have tomorrow is a story. It’s one that is found in Judges chapter three. I’m going blindly into our church service tomorrow with faith that God will provide to me the words to speak.
It’s frightening for a guy who doesn’t normally get scared to stand in front of people and speak. I’ve done it so much that it has become almost second nature. But going into it without preparation takes me way out of my comfort zone. No matter what happens tomorrow, I know God is in control. I guess Connecting Point better be ready for a really short service…just in case LOL.
