This is what they are saying. Who is “they?” Members of the search committee of the latest church to reject my resume. Well, they are not rejecting my resume, they are rejecting me. I hate rejection. I guess we all do on a certain level, but for some reason it seems to cut me more than others. At least from my pathetic point of view.
This is truly one of those times when I need to Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, and he shall give you the desires of your heart.
I do know also that He will change the desires of my heart in the process. I’m ready for that. His will be done, not mine. I’m at that point where it will be nice to punt all my dreams and let my heart be filled with His will and delight. Make is so, O LORD, make it so.
By the way, the above is Psalm 37:3-4. I’m preaching from Psalm 37 this morning. I will post a link to the sermon later this week. If you read this on Sunday, pray for me, specifically that the LORD would bear fruit through me.
