Today I woke up singing that 80’s Loverboy song, “Everybody’s workin’ for the weekend!” (don’t look at me with that tone of voice! You know you know that song too!)
I thought about how so many people live for their weekends! I do too, but probably for a different reason. I don’t get weekends off, but I look forward to them all week long.
That’s because I have one of the greatest jobs in the world- Pastoring a church. (alongside my husband!)
My Sundays are spent getting up early to be at church by 8:00am so I have time to do what I need to do before choir rehearsal at 9:00am, service at 10:30am followed usually by lunch with someone, then home for about an hour or two and back to church by 5:30pm for sound check and evening service. After that I work on processing contributions and whatever else needs to be done. And I WOULDN’T CHANGE A THING! It doesn’t hurt that we have an amazing church family!
I am so thankful for our Relevant Church family and never lose my sense of wonder that God chose us to lead them!
I agree with what the Psalmist David said in Psalms 122:1- (MSG) When they said, “Let’s go to the house of God,” my heart leaped for joy. My heart leaps for joy every day that I am privileged to be in His house!!
I’ve heard it said, “doing what you love isn’t a job.” I do go to the office nearly every day, but it’s rarely “work”!
How blessed are we being in the congregation that are Pastor by two wonderful and awesome Pastors that listen to the Holy Spirit.
Boy are we soooooooooooooo blessed and soooooooo thankful.
