Day Nine - Something you’re proud of in the past few days.
Wow, I really want to toot my own horn and all, but at the same time I don't want to embarrass myself or other people. But since it's a challenge, I'm going to do it anyway. I'll exclude the names of those involved to protect their identity from the general public, but if you recognize yourself, then yeah, it's probably about you.
I am a minister. Not a minister of the word and sacrament, but one of the home and relationship. I think it's one reason that Joel and I enjoy ministry so much, because even though we are both ministers, our calls compliment one another and are not mutually exclusive of each other. Well, recently, I have been trying my best to figure out how God's placing of all this love and marriage stuff in my lap is supposed to work out. Is it something big or what? And I have kind of settled on the idea that it's going to be a grass roots kind of thing. Within that, I try my best to do what I'm doing with God's direction and purpose acknowledged in every yes that I give.
So here comes the proud part. The other day, I was following through on one of my yes commitments and felt like I did a pretty craptastic job. It was difficult and unexpected and I felt like it should just be wiped from the slate of days, because I should have taken a completely different approach. Afterwards, I had a spouse of someone who witnessed all this tell me "She came home happy." Totally blew me away, but really confirmed the goodness of God. And it made me just the slightest bit proud that I had followed through on my yes and had actually been confirmed in my grass roots calling.
