Being an armor bearer
So i have been searching and searching...and now i know. No, i still don't know exactly what i am going to do with my life, but i know I want to be an "armor bearer" for the rest of my life. I want to encourage someone else who is serving the Lord. I don't know if i am going to get married, or just encourage my pastor and those around me. This comes from the passage in I Samuel 14 where Jonathan and his armor bearer went to battle with the Philistines. The armor bearer was a great encourager to Jonathan. He told him to do what was in his heart and that he would follow him according to his heart. I want to be the person that goes behind and helps someone to better serve the Lord. That doesn't mean i won't do anything for the Lord with my life. Just because the armorbearer was following Jonathan doesn't mean he wasn't in the battle. He was still fighting, working, and striving. This is what i want to do. I don't have to struggle through life thinking there is nothing for me to do. There is always someone out there to encourage. So know this, serve the Lord with your life and all you have to do is ask me to help you, and i will be right there to back you up. None of this was really my own thoughts....today was a great chapel.
