It is hard to imagine that the summer is now behind us and we are back into our routine of busyness.  Although my summer was very busy I did find some time to reflect on my life here at Trinity and all that God has provided here for my ministry.

 Many of you have said to me, “where do you get all that energy”? “How are you able to do so much?”

 I have a daily devotional book titled Jesus Calling, and every morning before work some of the staff and I meet in the chapel and have 15 minutes of meditation and prayer. Recently there was a reflection that I would like to share with you that speaks to the questions of energy.

 The devotion reads:

I am your Living God, far more abundantly alive than the most vivacious person you know. The human body is wonderfully crafted, but gravity and the inevitable effects of aging weigh it down.  Even the most superb athlete cannot maintain his fitness over many decades. Lasting abundant life can be found in Me alone. Do not be anxious about the weakness of your body. Instead, view it as the prelude to My infusing energy into your being.

 As you identify more and more fully with Me, My life becomes increasingly intertwined with yours. Though the process of aging continues, inwardly you grow stronger with the passing years. Those who live close to Me develop an inner aliveness that makes them seem youthful in spite of their years. Let My life shine through you, as you walk in the Light with Me  –Italics by author

 After reading that I felt that this devotion summed up my reflections as to how my life and ministry here at Trinity is working.  I am infused with God’s energy that keeps me alive and passionate about doing God’s work. I feel that I am constantly seeking Jesus and praying that the spirit is moving in my deeds and that God’s wisdom is guiding us on this glorious adventure!

 

Happy Fall.

 

Blessings,
