The second transition is that I was asked to resign my position as Associate Director of Discipleship and Congregational Care at the church I used to work. This was unexpected. I can't go into detail here as to why I was asked to resign, but I can assure you that I walked out of the church with my integrity intact and knowing that I gave my all to this Church. I stood for what was right, honorable and God-honoring and it came back to bite me. But God is sovereign and I trust He will bring me to a place of health both spiritually and for work. I pray that God used me in some way to help people grow in their faith and establish lifelong relationships in the three years I served there.
So, what now? Good question. I am convince now, more than ever, that God has a calling on my life for full-time ministry. This setback is not going to slow me down, in fact it has ignited a fire and passion to continue my calling. Nobody can take my calling away and nothing, aside from God, is goint to stop me from pursuing His will in my life.
Neddless to say I could certainly use prayer. There will be days that I will be down in the dumps and other days that I will not. I know I won't struggle with God because God is faithful, I will struggle mostly with myself... Getting anxious, worried, and impatient. Pray that God will lead me to the right ministry in my hometown or close by. I want to serve God with my whole being without the drama involved. I know this is a big request because where people are involved drama is involved, but there are many healthy churches out there and quite honestly I would like serve in one.
I am going to try my best to continue my Foundations 260 morning posts, but I may not be successful in posting every single day. However, do know that if I don't post a devo that I am at least reading the passage for the day. God's Word is alive and active and I will remain alive and active in His Word so I may continue to grow in this journey of faith.
Thank you everyone for your prayer and support.
