In a little less than a month from today, my husband and I will be celebrating our one year anniversary as the Student Ministry Pastors at Claremore Assembly of God. WOW. Time really does fly. It’s crazy to think that a year ago we were praying and seeking God for the direction we would take in our ministry and in our life.
I love the church and the people that God has brought us to, and I wouldn’t trade the will of God for anything else in the whole entire world. Sure, there are days when it’s not easy, but the fact that God has truly given me the desires of my heart, makes even the hardest day worth it all in the end.
The desire of my heart has always been to minister as a partner alongside of my husband, but to also minister effectively as an individual. It has been a crazy year and a totally wild ride, but this past month, as my husband and I took on the responsibility of leading worship on Sundays and I had the amazing opportunity to teach a workshop at the Oklahoma District’s Girl’s Ministry Retreat, I couldn’t help but to be reminded that God’s plan, though it is much wiser and much better than any plan I could ever imagine, will always include the desires that I have hidden in my heart. God is so good. I just can’t say it enough.
“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4
