I woke up this week…well…bearing the label many would call UNEMPLOYED. Yet, I’m in denial. I reject the label. I met for a my weekly prayer walk with Peter today, and he was adamant to drive home the point:
“Jeremy, you’re not unemployed. Unemployed people don’t have a job. You know the job the Lord has given to you. Now get to work!”
He’s right. I have work to do. I have the most exciting, most demanding task I’ve ever faced ahead of me this summer. In fact, today was one of my most productive and fulfilling days of work in weeks.
My full time job right now involves among many things connecting with friends and families in the Mound area and sharing the exciting Vision the Lord has given to Keri and I for our next season of ministry. Stay tuned as I begin writing more openly about the exciting journey ahead in the weeks to come.
So, I’m not unemployed. I know full well who my Employer is, and I know the task He has given to Keri and I. I’m not unemployed, just unpaid at the moment. But the Lord will provide. In fact, I got an unexpected call with some summer work today that proves that God will take care of us this summer.
