Encouraged!

May 10, 2018

Tonight I was preaching at the Ascension Day Service.

 

As usual, I looked at the passages, a few days ago, looked up a commentary, asked God to give me His words and off I went with a 'sort of' plan. 

 

I say 'sort of' plan because I have come to realise that if God is to speak through me, I cannot have a set script to read from.  I practiced what I was preaching!

 

I was taught, many years ago, that when speaking, to focus on someone who is engaged and smiling, rather than someone who isn't.  I was very encouraged tonight to see a number of people smiling and engaging with me. 

After the service, I was encouraged by a number of them.  One of the points to my sermon was waiting on the Holy Spirit before acting. The plan we have may be a good one that fits the Christian ethos, but is it God's plan for now? 

 

It was a wonderful, calm and light evening, but by the time I got home and looked out of an upstairs window, I saw a different beauty.  It doesn't capture it fully, but it rounded off beautiful comments on a beautiful evening. I'll share more about my sermon next time.
