Flushing Toilets

Strange phenomenon, this ministry thing…

One week into this holy of holies and I just gotta love God’s sense of humor.

All of us outside of the “ministry”, look in and think the days must be filled with all day prayer meetings, Bible studies, and Kum-Ba-Ya.

My first day was spent in and out of the restrooms, changing out the announcement placards and flushing the un-flushed toilets.

Had to snap this pic as a memorial:


Funny, I never felt closer to my God than I did that day.

I sensed Him telling me “I’ve got you right where I want you. Now listen, I have so much to teach you”.

Discouraged where you are? Your day spent flushing someone else’s toilet? Press into your Creator. Listen to what He is saying to you through your circumstances. He has you where you need to be in this season of your life too.
