Preached 3 times yesterday as the marriage conference here at Berean Baptist Church began. This is a sweet congregation eager to hear the Word and I felt the Lord’s help and grace as I preached. Many kind and encouraging words about the ministry of the Word were extended to me yesterday, but there was a very meaningful comment given by a young married couple that I did not expect.
This husband with a young family shared that he read a post on my blog 2 years ago about shepherding your children by meeting with each of them individually in a given week. Much like I shared this example affected me, he mentioned that this post changed his family life as he has put it into practice these last 2 years. He then shared how this new approach to shepherd the souls of his children had been such a blessing to him and his children.
I continually grow amazed in the way the Lord achieves his purposes in ways we do not know and understand. A sweet encouragement the Lord gave that has increased my hope that he will work in unknown mysterious ways through the rest of this conference. Maybe ways I may never hear about. Possibly, ways I may hear about years later when I least expect it.
