I was driving home from a friend’s house tonight and all I saw was one star straight ahead of me. It was beautiful. As I looked at the lonely star, I thought about all that has gone on in my life the last few weeks. They are things I have to keep lifting to God in prayer.
First of all, my church is going through a rough time. Both my church at home and at school. At home, I am not a voting member, so it breaks my heart, but I can only pray. I am more troubled by my church at school. It has been on my heart. I am a voting member and I pray for God’s wisdom.
The board has asked Pastor Doug to resign. I don’t understand this and I do not see the board’s reasoning. It has been asked for a vote of confidence. That means the voting members of the church must vote whether they think it is best for Pastor Doug to stay or go. I see all he is trying to do, and I honestly want him to stay. I need God to direct me and give me wisdom.
Secondly, my mind has been on marriage lately. It was mostly this that I thought and prayed about as I watched that lonely star. I have never been on a date or felt like any guy has ever looked my way. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but it has allowed doubt and loneliness sink into my life at various times. I keep praying for God to give me wisdom, and He does little by little. I know that I must rely totally on God in this department and trust His timing.
