WEEK # 1
Sunday completed my first week in Costa Rica. My first week at the school was a slow week yet full of learning. It was a week of learning the neighborhood, adjusting to school, and making new friends. I am anxious to get started in ministry. I will be talking to a contact of mine soon (Hopefully) about ministry opportunities.
Now that the house keeping details are out of the way; let’s get down to business! As I have had a little more free time than I’d like…I’ve been doing some thinking. I know, I know, Kevin thinking can be a dangerous thing, especially for me. I hate seeing my own flaws, and sin. But please indulge me….
I have been frustrated about the fact that I am not in ‘ministry’ right now. And in a way that is true. But I was reminded that ministry is a life style it is a choice to serve God. In reality ministry is being faithful in the little things God gives us and dreaming BIG things for God! Now, when I say big things…I mean, LIVES CHANGED BY THE POWER OF GOD’S WORD AND THE CALLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT! My job is not to dictate God’s will on my life. My job is to be faithful, and open to what ever God would have me do!
Please don’t mis-understand me. I don’t want to be lazy, and negligent. Remember, “Faithful in what God put before me.” And I am looking for opportunities to serve. But IT IS NOT MY PLACE TO DICTATE GOD’S WILL FOR MY LIFE!!!! And I must confess that I was trying to do that…my frustration was stemming from sin and not seeing what God is doing. And I can’t say that I see what He is doing just yet…I am excited to see what HE IS DOING, and what HE WILL DO here in Costa Rica!
“Don’t seek after a ministry, but seek after the fruits of a disciplined life!”
