Before I get a lecture I know that it isn’t supposed to be my ideas, but God’s ideas. But right now I feel like whoever comes up with the ideas is calling in sick. I am trying to figure out what to go with this Wednesday night and I can’t quite put my finger on it.
I have announced and even started planning a Doug Fields study about family, but the more I work on it the more I just don’t feel like pursing it. It isn’t that I feel like it is bad, but it just isn’t something that gets my heart racing. Part of it is that I have this idea for a study that won’t quite formulate, and it seems to be creating a log jam.
The idea is this: IS IT WORKING
That is what I want to talk about. When you look around at your life and the things that you are trying to do is it working. Trying to find that perfect date, is that working for you? Trying to get all the latest stuff–is that working for you. Trying to be popular–is that working? I want to take each of those ideas and then talk about how what you are searching for is actually God.
But that study will take more time than I have between now and Wednesday so right now I am putting off the decision of whether or not I am going to scrap the whole family thing. So I am trying to find some other ideas, but they just seem to be stuck.
