Directed Path Ministries…where would a name like that come from? Is it too bold? Is it too arrogant?
Many years ago now, I was speaking to a group of teenagers about trusting God using Proverbs 3:5-6. While I was speaking, I felt that God was actually asking me if I was trusting Him. I had been a Christian for a long time, so the question wasn’t about that. I was leading out in a youth group at the time, so it wasn’t about that either. I had not totally trusted God at the time with my life vocation. That night I chose to totally trust Him with what I was to do for the rest of my life. I began immediately to take steps to become a pastor. Shared with many people that I was to become a pastor. Went to school to become a pastor.
Today, as I sit here, I am looking back over those 27 years or so, realizing that God was orchestrating the Directed Path that He wanted me to take. While I was laying stones to be a pastor of a church, preaching every week along with the many duties pastoring include, God was preparing me to pastor people by counseling them and leading them to find the path that God was directing them to be on. What a journey! When we begin to follow His direction without our stones of expectations, we find joy and contentment.
Directed Path Ministries…exactly the place that God has me and now wants me to share.
