Change of Plans

Dear friends, I had been eagerly planning to write to you about the salvation we all share. But now I find that I must write about something else, urging you to defend the faith that God has entrusted once for all time to his holy people. (Jude 1:3 NLT)

It doesn't happen all the time but lately I have found that I can relate to this verse about interruptions in my own agenda. As the pastor of a church, it is always my desire to have the right words for people that have decided to grow spiritually in service to the Lord with me. In the last few weeks there have been many divine interruptions where what I thought I was going to say was changed "on the fly" by the Spirit of the Lord. Life has a way of helping me to move and my goal is to always move towards the Lord. Sometimes I defend the faith, sometimes I preach it. And everyday I strive to live it.

Today, if life changes your plans, if it pushes you around, let it push you to the things that bring a smile to the Lords face:)
