Sorry I didn’t write last night, but my computer was being used to render a new preview video for our Winter Retreat. I was up to 3:00 trying to get it to work the way I wanted it to, and even after all that is still doesn’t look as good as I wanted. Oh well.
Church was great tonight. It was one of those nights when everything just seems to click. The kids are in a good mood, and there are lots of them and the message may not be life changing, but at least they look like they are paying attention.
I have to say that there are times when I wonder if God really answers prayers, because it seems like everything I pray for doesn’t really happen, and then there are nights like tonight. If I can’t see that God answers prayers in the simple things of tonight then my eyes are closed. It always seems to work that way, the things that I think are major life things I get a weird combination of silence and “no” from God, but on the things that I think are little like having a room full of people worshiping God seems to come through more times than not. What I am seeing is maybe my idea of what is important and God’s idea of what is important are two different things. Maybe God sees the things that I consider little from the perspective of eternity and sees them as major deals.
I don’t know, I am just rambling now. I said all of that to say that God answered my prayer and I had a good day.
