I wrote a post back on the 20th of March about it being a busy season for me in ministry and it has been. We had a dear lady from the church have an aneurism and stroke and then heart issues which led to her going home to be with the Lord. Through that time I knew that my calling was to be with the family and encourage and support them – it was an intense time of ministry. Her funeral was this past Friday and it was an honor to minister at and through her funeral. Jesus was lifted on high through the funeral and all that happened around it.
I am now at a point where I am renewing and refreshing in Him. Monday is my day off – I have not had a whole day in a few weeks and it has worn me down. Yesterday was a whole day off and it was good. I did some spring cleaning with my wife, some errand running, some just hanging out with my bride, and just soaked in a beautiful day.
In all this I am reminded of this being Passion Week. This week as we who are believers in Christ head toward Resurrection Sunday let us soak in the beauty of what it means. Let us get refreshed and renewed by our Savior and the beauty of what He did for us on the cross and in the grave and in the resurrection!
I apologize for not being around too much in recent weeks but I am sure you understand it. I will most likely not be around much this week as I contemplate the meaning of the week and continue to be refilled so I can minister out of the overflow – because that is where we need to minister from.
I will spend some extra time in the Word this week and listen to some music and read some other things to be refreshed and be refilled in the time I would normally spend doing the blogging thing so that I can minister out of the overflow.
What is it that you do to be spiritually refreshed and refilled?
