St. George

16 Mar

As many of you know, George took the position as lead Pastor at St. George Church of God in St. George, SC a few weeks ago. Our life has most definitely gotten more hectic since then but we could not be happier! The people at St. George are wonderful and the days that we are not there, we are biting tooth and nail to return. As of right now, we make the 90 minute commute on Thursdays, return late Thursday night and drive back up Sunday morning and return that night. Yes, we are learning that sleep is not all that important (haha!) and the extra miles we are putting on our car are worth it all! This has been George and I’s prayer for many years that He would open up doors for us to broaden our ministry and open up a Church that is yearning for Him with a deeper passion and to give George the words and let him be the best Pastor that he can be. We are both in awe of what God has entrusted us with thus far and have very high hopes for the people and ministry in St. George, and the surrounding areas, and believe that through God, all things are possible. I cannot wait to see what our future holds as a family and as leaders at St. George Church of God.

Destiny

2 Mar

Dont ask me why, but ever since I was a little girl I knew, deep down, that I would be a Pastor’s wife one day. I dont know if this was because I was around one- my Grandma- so much, or just because something inside of me knew that was my destiny… or calling. I also remember thinking the whole time while George and I were dating that he would be a Pastor. Now, I am not saying that I would, or could, not be happy not being a Pastors wife, or not having a husband as a Pastor, but I just believed these things early on. And I know that being a Pastor, or Pastor’s wife, may not be of importance to some, but to me, it is! I am tearing up writing this because as I sit here, I now am, I am a Pastor’s wife. My husband is a Pastor. WOW!!

What a big responsibility we have now. Not that we didnt before…. but now… it’s intensified!

I am greatful for where God has planted us for this season and cannot wait to see what He has in store for us!!

Questions On Belief…

16 Nov

I would say that I have been a Christian pretty much my whole life. Granted, I did not attend Church constantly, and even had the chance to experience almost every religion in America, but I would say that I was ALWAYS a Christian. My grandparents were a big part of my upbringing and my grandfather was a Church of God pastor so I look back and even when I was being taken from Church to Church, my fondest and most memorable memories were from my CoG days.

So, I am posing this question because I realize that some people have fallen away from their faith, a faith that they once would have stood upon NO MATTER WHAT!

If you accept God as your personal Savior, and become a Christian, but fall away from it… were you ever even truly saved at all??

I know that this may be deep for some but I believe that if you believe the whole Bible, and in a God that sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins, and you TRULY accepted these things, then you would not “backslide” or depart from those beliefs…. no matter what!!

No, I am NOT perfect and yes, I have, and will always have, faults but if I claim to be a Christian, shouldnt I be a Christian thru and thru… not swaying but staying firm with everything that is in me?!?!

MIP Beginning Thoughts

29 Aug

George and I had our first MIP (Ministerial Internship Program) event… or orientation, this weekend. MIP for those that do not know, is the second step in the liscensing procedure with our denomination. It is a nine-month course with daily lessons and monthly seminars and tests that better equips you to be a pastor. It is a process that both George and I have to participate in, pass and graduate from in May.

I am going into this new step with lots of great hopes. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it will be rough at times. But I also know that George and I will be better leaders and people after this… equipped to do what God has called us to do. George is an amazing man before going into this so I only know that it will strengthen him and prepare him for the journey that lies ahead.

I am blessed to have such an unbelievable husband and for him to want to take the steps forward in what God has in store for us makes me adore him even more. I know that we will grow stronger because of what the next nine months holds in store for us and that what we go through each day will develop our ministry and make us a better couple to go and reach the lost.

I am both excited and optimistic for what God has in our future and I know that as long as we stay in His word and in prayer we can do anything and everything that He requires of us!!  

He never said it would be easy… but he also never puts more on us than we can bear….
