this question was on Jen Fry's blog..

"What do you mean when you say, 'into the ministry'?"

What is 'into the ministry'. I know you could answer..a certain bible school.. or maybe a dts..the possibilites are endless. What is ministry? Do we need to travel away to be doing ministry. Do we need to go to a certain school to be ministering? Do i have to do great things to be a minister of the truth?

Maybe someday i will travel to far away places.But im here now. Maybe i will do great things for God. But what are "great things"? A toonie to a homeless person is a great thing. An icecream to a child is a great thing. An exchange in smiles between two strangers is a great thing. All things in which i can do right here in my own town.Right now. Things i am certainly able to do. But sometimes why do i forget to do them. Or in some cases choose not to. Something as simple as a smile can have such a strong impact. Just caring about how other people are feeling, or how their day is going is so powerful. That is true ministry. Showing God's love through actions.But just everyday actions. Should not our hearts be so consumed in Jesus that these things come without thought. That it just comes naturally, should not we be so in tune with what Jesus wants us to do that we don't even have to think what would Jesus do. But yet it would just happen. Our very soul should be so connected with the Gospel that our mind has nothing to do with it. our actions should reflect our hearts and our hearts should reflect the Gospel.

1 John 3:17-18 If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth

i feel like i have an infection that God is scrapping out every last bit hurts like heck right now. but it's gonna leave me changed..Jesus is transforming my very being. but more importantly my spirit.

1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect

What's your reason?

my reason is because the love of Jesus Christ is worth sharing. the grace he has shown me is unending. and his love is everlasting. the world has torn me down but my Lord has built me stronger!

"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners." Isaiah 61:1

God is saying FREEDOM!Common somebody! let's getter' done!

Jesus take the wheel..

today we sat on the front stairs of our school, everyone scrambling to sit with their friends. after a few minutes the class of 2007 was situated. i stared at the camera..when it hit me. im graduating. i have talked about it for four years now." i can't wait to get outta this joint" and now..its my final year and im busting out! but on the other has been something that has been stable for 13 years of my life..always somewhere to go, there was always something to do.. much as i hated it..was a firm foundation , a way to keep in touch with all my friends. and now everything is going to change. it's going to be different you know, i won't see this person by their locker everyday..even if i didn't know them but knew their face.. or i won't meet these certain people for lunch on monday..and these ones on tuesday. it's gonna be different. i guess i'm just scared. i mean..everone else pretty much are all going on to university..and as of right now i'm traveling to Africa for 2-3 months in september 2007. there i will find an orphange filled with children whos parents have died of AIDS. i don't know anyone personally...but i know it's a good program and certainly where God wants me. scared you ask? scared out of my mind.
i have been a Christian now for 2 years. and in two years God has rocked my world. He has shown me things that i cannot even begin to describe on paper. people have told me i am going to be anything from a preacher,intercessor,mission worker. honestly i don't need a title. all i want to be called it a child of GOd.That is more then i can ask for. i have no idea what im doing after Africa but i know that Jesus does. GOd is gonna do amazing things..Jesus take the wheel!

wednesday night dream

i was surrounded by hundreds of orphane children, just longing for someone to love them. i had just witnessed a mother of 5 beautiful children die before my very eyes. holding the twins in my arms, my good friend courtney was beside me holding another baby and hugging a young child with her free arm. we sat in silence breaking out into random praying and cries to Jesus. my heart broke as sat holding these kids who had nothing in my arms.the one person that loved them was now dead. questions raced through my head.then as usual i woke up crying. looked at the clock it was 3:34 am... i couldn't go back to sleep. i sat awake sobbing and praying. wondering if this was something that was going to take place or just another one of those very real dreams. my heart yearns to be elsewhere.

im in a weird place. there are a lot of things i need to figure out. and a lot of things i feel im never going to understand. im going through some intense times. prayers are very welcomed and needed. thanks. -KB
