So I’m in a parked car on an old iBook G4 outside of a coffee shop using some bootleg wifi. Such is life.
Pat and I came over for some meetings. But I’m not a part of the first meeting. So I’m running a few errands around Tupelo before the meeting I am a part of.
The first official Sunday is over now. It went well. I got to meet a few new people. I think that’s going to be something I should and will be doing a lot of these next few weeks/months. To be a leader of small groups I’ll need to make a lot of connections. Sorta the same, but sorta different from leading youth specifically. We’re still trying to map out what involvement I’ll have with the youth ministry here at The Orchard in Oxford. I know I’ll have some, but not sure to what degree. And it may be something that shifts and changes as time moves.
I’ve not yet spent even a week up here in the “North”, but there are a lot of familiar places and spots. It’s good to be back. But there’s still lots I miss from Clinton…. again, such is life.But it’s really cool seeing the church in Oxford still in it’s toddler stage of life. And all the potential and promise that it holds.
But as I was driving up yesterday, The Wife reminded me …that I need to rely completely on God. That’s it’s Him in me that even made any of this possible. And with all the busyness of the holidays and final youth trips, and traveling, and living out of a suitcase….I’ve let some of that slip.
So I ask for your prayers specifically for 2 things: That I spend time intimately with Jesus as I take these next steps in my life, and that our house sells. There may be a lead on that one…so I really, really, really, really want that to happen quickly.
