Ya, so I’m guessing that you guys are thinking that I am going to write about sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll. Well the title is completely misleading. I just wanted to write a blog about what’s been going on with me lately and couldn’t find a good title.
Well my Dad retired from Chrysler last year, so right now he has a part-time job with Joe’s auto, working nights. It’s really cool because that means his afternoons are free. That’s awesome because my dad and I have been able to go out to lunch. We’ve been able to get to talk and get to know each other, which we were never able to do while he was working at Chrysler for 40+ hours a week.
Getting to know my Dad has been a really cool experience, because I’ve found him to be a very interesting person and very cool to talk to. Some time earlier this year I shared the gospel with him, and have been praying ever since to get more opportunities to share with him some more, so this is an answer to my prayers. Now what I really need to start doing is praying for boldness to share the gospel (of course going back to the whole phleg emotion of fear). I’m really excited that the Lord has given me the opportunity, because my dad really needs the lord, and to win him, would mean great things for the rest of my family.
Well, I am completely done with classes for the semester and I only have one exam on Tuesday. As the end of school comes ever closer, it means the beginning of more work. I’ll have to start putting in forty hours a week, so that i can start a nice savings for when we get a ministry house.
Oh, and for those of you haven’t heard, we decided to wait one semester to move out and get a ministry house. Various obstacles came up, like an unexpected raise in the rent of our house that we wanted, and the fact that we really had no other houses. It seemed as if the lord was telling us it wasn’t time for us yet, otherwise he would have obviously destroyed these obstacles. It kind of sucks, but in the end, it will help adjust those who aren’t used to a college load be prepared for balancing school, work, and most importantly ministry. I was blessed enough to already have this opportunity through post-secondary, so my main use of this extra semester will be to pad my savings a bit more.
I found out that I am going to be interviewed for a scholarship in a couple weeks. It was one which I had mad credentials. I just need to keep praying that the interview doesn’t get completely messed up, and I’ll have some extra college money.
Well, I’ve been contemplating writing a multi-part story as a part of my blog, releasing one entry per week, along with my normal entry. I’m still thinking about a good story line though, so it could take a bit, I have a slow thinking process.
This is J.A.D.
