Pressure!

Life has been hectic the last little while. And just when I thought I could come up for air, I lost the hard disk on my laptop.

Over the past five or six years I have been convinced that God has me in his own special training programme. By and large I have enjoyed every minute of it and been overwhelmed by his grace and power. The co-incidences - such as the invitation to lead worship in a church for a period when I was studying a course on worship with a large practical component - have been awesome. So now I ask myself what God is trying to teach me. Lord, haven't we done pressure already? Remember when . . . I can see that previously my life was very much more under control. I had more to do, but I could plan when to do it. Maybe this lesson is about handling the unexpected. Tackling the important and learning to sometimes let go what seems to be urgent. So - I am writing this post even though I have deadlines on other things!

Glad to see you back and blogging. Sometimes things are more intersting from God's perspective when he gets us into line with him. A good meal is cooked in a pressure cooker.

Thanks Herman. I must admit that as soon as I have breathing space I'm starting to look around for something else to do. Some of us are not designed to sit around relaxing!
