A second fallback that I have for resisting the call. is an attempt to be humble in all things. This defense mechanism works like this: You are sitting in Sunday School, a small group, or around a campfire and have something to say. You hold back because you do not want to sounds like a "know it all / boastful / better than others / supreme". Feel free to insert any adjective that might fit.
However, God has called us to be bold, to take up the ministry with both hands, and to move forward following him. Last week I went to Middle School Church Camp called Disciple Camp While I am not in Middle School anymore, I had a great time and connected to the story. We studied Moses' life, as a sojourner in foreign lands.There are times in my life, when I feel like I am wandering through the desert or the never ending forrest in search of something, the task that God has for me.
This time I am responding my me feeling that I should learn to play the guitar with the mentally of Isaiah, who answered God with, "Send Me! I will go." Last night and tonight I have been asking, who came up the the chord F7 Major? When I think of F7 I generally want to know, "what function will that do on my PC?"
I am making a effort to learn and play the guitar, so I may glorify the Lord with words and music of praise.
