I can't believe I forgot! The oldest mistake in the book!
I starting working full time at Revelation Church on the 1st July 2011 and it has been amazing. The senior pastor Dan Slatter said that for the first 3-6 months I should just chill out, hang out with people, get to know them and slowly get involved with the work. Lol I think that lasted about 3 or 4 days and since then I have been flying around arranging City Angels, Alpha, Church Media, Pastoral Issues, Mens Ministry, Leading Services, Reports, 24-7, Meetings....... you know how it is! I have been so busy doing amazing, exciting kingdom stuff that I forgot about God! Funny isn't it. Forgetting about the one you are spending all your time working for.
My prayer life at best has been arrow prayers. My scripture reading has been patchy and bad quality. My time spent in his presence has been almost non existent! And I wonder why when I lead worship, host meetings, council people, write my blog, my words can be basic, and stuff I have known for years. How am I supposed to discover more of the depth of my father when I spend no time with him?
This week we have been running the 24/7 room and I have spent hours with God soaking him up. Yesterday we held a worship event with many church leaders across the south coast of England in the 24-7 room, I led worship and then 3 of the leaders prayed and prophesied over me and without knowing anything they said that God is saying that I need to do less things and spend more time soaking in his waterfall. He has got so much to show me if I would only hear him. He has a new song for my heart!
