Woodcrest Chapel

As I'd mentioned earlier I'm speaking 4 times this week and was planning on using variations of the same talk for all of them. So, last night I printed up my teaching notes for the chapel at Woodcrest Christian this morning. Got up this morning, started getting ready, and was doing some thinking. I'd heard a message last week from Hebrews 12 that had encouraged me and challenged my thinking some. Now, I've spoken from this passage quite a few times, but hadn't hit one of the applications that was mentioned last week.

Anyways, I'm thinking about this passage personally and all of a sudden I start feeling like that's what I need to share at Woodcrest. If you know me, you'll know this is not super-normal for me. I'm a planner and tend to stick with the plan once it's in motion. But it was one of those senses of "No, you need to talk about Hebrews 12." It was like I knew if I stuck with the original plan it would bomb, fall flat, miss the mark, etc. So, I finished getting ready, sat down at the computer, and started typing. A little bit later I walked out the door with the new message (granted the basic outline was one I'd used before).

Students responded great. I even had one random girl come up and say it really spoke to her a lot (if you work with teenagers you know that is rare). I REALLY enjoyed speaking there also. It was one of those moments where it just feels like you're doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing. Those are good moments.

    Wow, that sounds amazing. I'm glad that you were able to experience that and to know that God was working. It is great to get those little reminders that you are doing the right thing.
