A Saturday in my Life

Today I’ve been off to our daily early morning prayer meeting. I love the opportunity to be connected; connected to God and connected to a group of prayer warriors who covers our pastor and church with a blanket of prayer. For me it’s a new form of prayer walk. I walk around the sanctuary praying. It brings new meaning to bodily exercise profits little. Well, when coupled with prayer, it accomplishes a lot. Just saying! Then I went to a Serve Now project, coordinated by my so-in-law, Zach, clearing out the flower beds. It’s amazing how much and how fast weeds can grow literally smothering the beautiful plants. Probably another reason, in the spiritual realm, for a need for a stronger prayer life. Keep those weeds out! Daily!I was also glad to be a part of a missions conference online. The new Short-Term project, “A Day in the Life of the Short-Term Missions Director” was premiered and went very well. We also continue to receive videos from around the world that promote Global ConNEXTions. The registration is quickly approaching 700. I’m amazed at the creativity used in our adverting social media blitz. A friend, Darla McLean, passed away this morning. She, and her husband, had just retired from missionary service in West Africa. COVID-19 won the chapter. But in the end, the Lord is triumphant, and wins the battle. Of course, Darla, won the crown. I’m not trying to figure it all out. I won’t be offended in the way God does His business.My queen, Linda, did a podcast episode for me on Poitras Ponderings Podcast. She spoke about her call and “The Availability Factor.” I may write more about that another time. We are already planning future episodes featuring her. The rest of the day has been spent studying for various lessons and messages.I think I’ll read some tonight. Surprised! Probably not!
