Good wisdom from my friend Josh Nelson - we were talking the other day about worrying. Josh made the point that if we believe in the absolute, unflinching sovereignty of God (which we do), then worry and anxiety become absolutely ridiculous. Yet, we so often fall into those traps. So, if you're going to be a Calvinist, you might as well take advantage of the solace that those truths bring. To ruminate on theological theory without it ever affecting our daily lives is an exercise in foolishness and futility. This has all hit close to home for me today as Heather and I enter the second day after our daughter's due date. I'm constantly fretting over when she's going to be born. I've made the comment several times that "she's late." However, the more I reflect on God today, the more I realize that whenever my baby girl shows up, she'll be right on time. Everything always is.
I'm a follower of Christ, an heir of the Reformation, and a Baptist - in that order. My wife Heather and I have been married since 2005 and are the proud parents of a little girl. I work as an Aviation Technical Publications editor. From 2005 to 2009 I served as Minister to Youth at Hazelwood Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, and I'm now actively pursuing church planting.
Soli Deo Gloria!
