THURSDAY in the Life of a Pastor

We had a great Wednesday night Bible study last night.  Attendees seemed excited to be there and there was a sense of expectancy for the bible study.   We always take the last 15 minutes and take prayer requests we then spend several minutes praying for the God of Heaven to intervene.

However today it’s Thursday After private devotions and prayer I spent the next few hours finishing Sunday Evenings message.  Today I prayed for something very unusual and in all reality, I prayed for something very hard to do.  I prayed for some people that I think don’t like me.   LOL, I know; I know.   Who couldn’t like me?  I would love to eliminate my enemies and even if not enemies, I’d like to turn people that don’t care for me, to like me.  I then had to forward my sermon outline to our Audio/Visual Team.  They put everything on our big screen and it is always with taste and excellence.  I’m really proud of them.

It is always a treat when men in the church drop by for a visit.  Today two different Davids’ stopped by the church.  Great time of fellowship with these Godly men.

I have spent the afternoon searching for a possible replacement for our youth pastor.  Brother Ben and his wife are moving to Alabama.  He’ll be greatly missed and replacing him is going to be a chore.  I was excited today when a North Carolina pastor sent me a message recommending a young couple.  I’m definitely checking up on them.

Well tonights the night.  I play on a Cary N.C. Senior Softball league and it is the city tournament.  Our team is in the final four and if we win the first game, we turn around and play a second game.  I love softball and tonight I’m lead off hitter and playing Shortstop.  Like playing in the tennis league, I’m using this for outreach and several players have shown interest in attending our church.

I arrive back home at 4:00 PM and start making calls to Sunday’s absentees.  This will take 30 to 40 minutes then its a light supper and off to the ball diamond.  Take care my friends and please leave a comment or a like below.  I’d like to know you dropped in.

    Really enjoyed the blog Pastor Donaho. I realize you’re very busy. I really don’t know how you balance everything and still stay sane. Lol! No, I’m sure that comes with time experience and wisdom. All of which you have. And no I’m not calling u old. You’re one of the most Godly men I’ve ever had the privilege to know. I just wanted to say thank you for always encouraging me and never giving up on me even when I wanted to throw in the towel for the last couple of months. You’ll never know how much your words have helped my personal walk with Christ. Thank you also for always sticking up for me when others have put me down. I love you and thank you for all you do.

    Mr. Timothy Sanderford
