The Battle

I gave my resume to the church today for consideration of the youth pastor/christian ed director position. It's been a long road traveled. Delilah and I have had many discussions over the last 3-4 years about being a youth pastor. God has been tugging at me to jump into it. I have been reluctant to follow his lead. Why are we so reluctant at times. This has been a long process. I feel like I have been in arguments with Him. But it's not really worth trying to argue with God, is it? You never seem to win. So this on going battle came to a head two weeks ago. The pastor announced the church was going to hire a youth pastor. First thought was great.... this will really be good for the church. My second thought was uh oh........ this is the door I have been praying God will open for me. So the last two weeks the battle raged on with God and myself, He won. I talked to Delilah and others close to me about applying. Everyone seemed to be supportive of God on the situation. So I took the big first step in submitting my resume for the position. Stay tuned for more.

Like I said this has been a long long process for me. It just happened that the church made the announcement after I mentioned about the whole moving situation. We feel this is a door that God has opened for us and must follow through and see what happens.
