Blog 205 for March 6, 2021
Here we are starting the third month in 2021. It really is true, time waits for no one. I have heard it said through the years, the older you get the faster time will fly. Looking back, that statement never did impact my life. As a matter of fact, I really did discard it and refused to believe it. Time has made a change in me. Now I believe it, and am a believer! I have come to believe that senior citizens are not the only ones that are amazed at the fast passing of time. I have done a test on all ages, and have found that everyone is in agreement. Time really is on a fast track and waits for no one. Do you remember how slow time passed from Christmas to Christmas each year? What happened to time back then? I am sure you will agree with me when I say, it seemed like a lifetime.
Lately, I have been reliving my 56 years as a pastor. My shortest pastoral assignment was in my first year and was for only one year. My longest was for 19 years. That first year was like a vapor. Our son Chuck was a brand new baby and Bess taught high school English. It really was a blur. I really did not realize it then, but the Lord had plans for my ministry to be one of restoration and rebuilding. Every church from California to Virginia and from Texas to Indiana, and states in between, was an assignment to rebuild and restore. As a result, the years have been times of building buildings and buying properties. Between Sundays, I have traveled across America and Canada motivating pastors and challenging churches in church growth. All along the exciting pastoral journey, I did not realize it then, but my 56 years were moving at a fast pace and time was waiting for no man! Here I am today looking back on the years God gave to me to pastor growing churches and establish wonderful friendships across the land. I really am a blessed man! It goes without saying, Bess has been a key factor in all the church growth we have experienced through the years and the honors we have received!
We have one more move we are planning to take and that could happen at any time. As a matter of fact, we are talking about it often...every day in our morning devotionals. We are saying with the great Apostle, “Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus” to receive your Church to your heavenly home. What a glorious day that is going to be! Without one doubt, that is going to be the most exciting trip we have ever taken! That is going to be the best way to get us and our nation out of the most difficult time we are experiencing at this time in American history!
It really is a fact, Time Waits For No Man! Are you ready for Jesus to come?
