I actually downloaded and studied this text back in April, ready to further my training as a Chaplain.
I had been hired to work as a Hospice Chaplain and was eager to get started.
Tragically, the very week that I was to start, my sister in law was murdered at the very Hospice company that I was to begin work for.
This resulted in my loss of faith, my loss of discipleship, I lost my way.
I instead began working for my local school district and was considering becoming a teacher. The longer I strayed from my bible study and my discipleship the more wrong it felt.
Yesterday I picked up my bound copy of The Supernatural Church and re-read Experiencing Heart Realities. It hit me like a ton of bricks!
I’m back on track, sending out resumes to Hospice companies in the area and, ready to submit my coursework for my chaplaincy certification through TECU!November 2, 2017 at 6:21 pm #30510
God bless you as you continue to recover from your devastating loss and gather your courage to find your path to chaplaincy work again. I am sure that God, through His power to bring forth good out of evil, can use this tragedy to transform you into an instrument of love and compassion as you seek to do His work. Your decision to move forward is an inspiration to me, and I pray that God will ease your suffering as you recover your faith. You are in my prayers.November 4, 2017 at 10:32 am #30511
My Dearest Rev C,
That devil is so conniving in attempting to keep you from fulfilling your God-breathed assignment. He knows that once you get there, so many grieving people will be blessed by your counsel. There is no testimony without a test. Praise God that we fall down, but we get up. I am sorry for your loss, but the enemy doesn’t understand that through this pain, you will rise even stronger and more compassionate and committed. Not only will you be sympathetic, but empathetic, to the loss others are facing in Hospice.
As we used to say back in my old neighborhood, “he messed with the wrong one”! I thank God for you and your calling. You are a walking example of Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Be BlessedNovember 5, 2017 at 9:56 pm #30513
Thank you for sharing and sorry for you loss.
God has a plan for you and as you move forward know that he has your back and will encourage and train you through the Holy Spirit.
