In the past few weeks, Old Socks has been back in the pulpit a couple of times and this coming Sunday will be the third time since he resigned from LRBC. He says he really doesn't miss preaching, but he does somewhat miss teaching. Personally, I do not miss the legalism and uptightness that we experienced at LRBC. My beautician asked the other day how I felt about being away from that facet of service. To which I responded, "I can finally let my hair down for a little bit." She literally had to stop what she was doing because she was chuckling so hard. Was I kidding? NO. Was I being disrespectful to the Lord or to the calling? NO. I was simply stating the truth. For the first time since being called into ministry, I feel a liberty and freedom I have not felt before. I finally understand what it means to strive to please the Lord instead of men. It is my desire and goal to live the rest of my life striving to please, first and foremost the Lord. After that, there is only one man I desire to please....my husband. AND pleasing him does not mean I am required to walk 3 steps behind him or anything of the sort. Pleasing him is easy because I love him and desire to please him AND he loves the Lord, so he only desires me to please Him. Thus, if I please my Lord & am what my husband desires...all is good in my little world ;)
It is my desire to please these two guys in my life...what is your desire(s)? Until next time, ride safely, my friends.
