My oldest three kids have been in church all their lives. They were born into ministry because I was serving somewhere on church staff. They saw great times, but they also saw and heard some things I wish they never experienced. I have never pushed vocational ministry on them because God calls, I don’t.
My oldest son shared this on Facebook today, and I wanted to share it with you:
“Over the past few months, the Lord has been dealing on my heart about going into the ministry. The first time I felt a sense of a calling was a few months ago, and since then, I’ve prayed about it and studied about Biblical callings. I feel that the Lord is calling me into the ministry, but I’m not sure in what capacity of ministry.
“I ask that y’all who see this pray for God to reveal to me what capacity of ministry He wants me to serve in. Thanks!”
Please pray for my son, Micah. My greatest desire for him and all my children is that they glorify God in whatever vocation they may find themselves.
