Today was the last Sunday in my churchâ€™s current building. We have completed the first phase of our new building program and we are moving in next week. The final service included a slide show showing all of the great things that have happened in the current facility.
I am acutely aware that of late, that I have not been very involved. I really have no excuse. I have just allowed life to consume me of late. I wish I could look back on my faith walk as one constantly upward moving journey. But really my entire life has been a series of wild undulations. I hate the fact that I seem to have bipolar faith. But I am somewhat comforted by people like Abraham, Peter and David who also had their highs and lows.
There was a cheesy trinket of â€œJesus Junkâ€ that was popular a few years ago that said, â€œPlease be patient, God isnâ€™t finished with me yet.â€ All though I hate that kind of sentimental crap, I do appreciate the phrase. I am constantly amazed by Godâ€™s willingness to use us despite our unfaithfulness.
My life needs a spring cleaning to get me back on the upward path. Iâ€™m sure upcoming blogs will deal with my â€œdusting.â€
