We heard one of favorite Christian teachers, Joyce Meyer, would be speaking at the stadium where the San Jose Sharks NHL team play. So, we jumped in the car and drove over the hill.
The SAP stadium is beautiful. We found our seats and enjoyed listening to a powerful worship band called Jesus Culture.
Joyce had lots to say, but what resignated with me was her point that we are partners with God. He has a part and I have a part in our relationship. She reminded us we can’t do His part and He will not do our part. It’s a simple truth that I needed to be reminded of.
She went on to say works of the flesh equals frustration. If we try to help God along, we can become frustrated. I know that’s been true in my life, because when I want something and force it along, I get frustrated; especially when the result doesn’t turn out as I expect it to. For instance, for years I wanted to get married. I kept trying to find the right partner and it never seem to work out for one reason or another. Perhaps he wasn’t faithful, did drugs, or there wasn’t mutual feelings. Finally, at age 32 I surrendered my desire to God and I met my husband to be, Randy, two months later.
Afterward the event, we headed home and rested for awhile.
Then, Alicia asked if we could play tennis as a family. So, we grabbed our tennis rackets and headed to our local park. Believe it or not, it was our first time playing together. We’ve always concentrated on other sports such as baseball or basketball.
All in all, Saturday was packed full of fun family events.
How about you? How was your weekend?
