I always enjoy those moments where you have tangibly accomplished something important. Those moments for me were always the most obvious when I was in school, like finishing your last final exam of a semester, or graduating. One of the hard things for me about ministry is that those moments seem to be much more rare. I always have a bit of that feeling after the sunday worship service, but I also know how fleeting that is, because Sunday comes every week!
Well, I just had that feeling of “Ah, it is nice to be finished. ” I just mailed my final year of commissioning papers off! That means, God willing, that I have completed all of my written work towards ordination. It is a good feeling. Thank you, Lord.
