Well I spoke the other day about my weekend and the events that it included. So now I have told my Dad of my intentions and what I believe God is calling me to do, what happens next?
Well two things swung into action yesterday. The first is that I spoke to the area leaders of my Church last night and told them of my intentions officially and spent some time talking to them about my life and God's work in it. There is still a small amount to be done here and worked on before I know for sure the reality and likely time line for this plan but this should hopefully happen quickly in the next week.
The second thing is a little more advanced in the planning stage. This is my desire to move to Vancouver for a year and work with a project there. The project is working with homeless and vulnerable people in Vancouver and with an aspect of training in Christian ministry and being a radical Christian. As this work is similar to what I am doing now it would be a natural progression and an amazing experience. As someone who relishes being thrown into the deep end and learning new skill from experience this is likely to be a fantastic opportunity. I have secured almost everything I need to do for this and the only thing that remains is talking it through with my parents further before I apply for it and commit fully to it.
So there is a lot going on in my life right now but it is all exciting and God centred. Within the next few weeks things will start coming together much more solidly and then I think I will be ready to make the announcement to the world what I am planning on doing with my life. But I know that the next few weeks, months and years are going to be very exciting and full of adventure. Some would say the events that have led me to this point would make me a very lucky person, I would disagree, I would say it shows I have an awesome God who loves me.
This blog is supposed to be, as much as I can, my daily journey through life as a Christian. I hope it to be my thoughts and feelings on life but be as grounded in the Christian message as it can. My intention is not to create a daily readings or bible study guide but to look at my life in terms of a Christian trying to find and follow God's mission using his Life User's Manuel AKA the Bible.
