I am not in full-time Christian ministry by accident.
I am not in full-time Christian ministry solely by my own choice.
I am not in full-time Christian ministry because i was incapable of working effectively in other fields.
rather, I am in full-time Christian ministry primarily because i believe that God has called me to it.
these were my thoughts this morning, as i read thru some lecture notes from last june's Pastoral Leadership and Ministry. i'm preparing to write my assignment, due in december; and one of the questions is, "what is the significance of Divine Call in Christian Leadership?"
yes, by God's grace, i managed to finish my assignments for Biblical Interpretation and pass them up on time last month. phew! but now there's another assignment to wrestle with... i don't think the questions are as tough as the Biblical Interpretation ones were, but i'm having to deal with them at a high-stress time. 4 camps coming up at the end-year that i have to prepare for, and next year's camps to prepare for too (some camps are in the march hols and in the mid-year, so have to start preparing now) plus the SCF Database Update Exercise to worry about... i feel a little bit overwhelmed.
nevertheless, in the midst of all the busyness, it was good to be reminded again of Why i am doing what i am doing. may i not lose focus on the One i am called to love and serve. i continue to covet your prayers as the pressure rises. 'til the next post, God bless! =)
