I have also emailed the Department of Education to verify that everything is ready for the renewal of my certification.
The plan going forward is to BE HERE
in Grand Rapids
with the kids at Northpointe Christian School
involved at Trinity Baptist Church
UNTIL WE ARE NOT HERE.
I am also going to prayerfully continue with the pastoral ministry search while beginning the search for a math teaching position. I have shared before that my passion is for pastoral ministry but over this past year God has not provided this.
Recently, I read an article entitled 6 Distinguishing Marks of a Call to Gospel Ministry by Steven Lawson. Here are the six marks:
- Inner Compulsion
- Loving Concern for Other
- Overwhelming Constraint
- Sobering Humility
- Corporate Confirmation
The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
And those who know your name put their trust in you,
for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.
