Too much opportunity

So right now I am in the midst of a hundred different things and people I am attempting to manage for campus ministry and my time here on the blog has tapered off. But I certainly will continue to blog as I am inspired and actually make the effort to log in and write.

Today I was corresponding with Terry Rush, who ended up being a strong influence on me at a crucial time of life when I had very little trust in ministers. His eternal optimism and intimate relationship with God created a realness in him despite his high profile famous preacher status. This was important to me. But, anyway, I was reading part of his blog just now and wanted to share one part of his thoughts that ring true to me right now:

I write this today to tell you I feel certain your plate seems to be too small for the load of opportunity you are carrying. First, wouldn't you rather have this life than the cemeterial boredom of nothing happening? And second, don't you continue to catch yourself noticing 5000 needs with only a sack lunch of skill to get to them? And that's why.....we are transformed in our thinking to believe more than us is working this work. Jesus really is our brother/partner. He is back supplying us with the courage to tackle the possibilities giving us reason to be full of enthusiasm.

Blogger Wes and Ellen - 1:28 PM

"A sack lunch of skill", well said.

Cary,

Been thinking about you a lot lately as Summer LG's have taken flight and the fall is around the corner. Sure do miss your wisdom and passion here in Abilene. Meanwhile I am thankful that God is using you in great ways in Kansas. I will be in prayer for you and your load this afternoon.
