What I'm Learning

I have been inspired by the one and only Boyd Bettis. At 24, I realize how much I need to cherish the ones closest to me.

I'm getting married to an amazing woman on June 14th, 2008. I'm learning about how to be a spiritual leader in our relationship. It is so easy at times to spend time leading others in ministry, talking with parents/praying for them, and visiting hospitals, etc.

God is teaching me that I can do all of that and totally miss the importance of being all that God wants in my relationship with Cassidy. With the reality of getting married soon (which I'm totally pumped about) I realize the importance of making Christ the center of my life more and more each day.

I suppose the best way to summarize what I'm trying to say is...

The people closest to me do not always get the right kind of love or attention from me that they deserve.

Anybody else relate to this in ministry and life?
