#3 Follower of Him – youth work

As I have a week off, it has given me a bit of time to think about what I do for a living.

It’s what I feel called to. This months Youthwork Magazine is a special with lots of interesting people writing their dreams for the future of youth work. Its certainly food for thought. I’m going to read the rest of it tomorrow when R is at work, and have a go at the page they have given for setting our your own vision.

I’m reminded how much I love Jesus and what a privilege it feels to be doing stuff for him. Not just because I work for the church, I felt it just the same when I worked for the council.

It’s just that He is the master brick layer and I get to hand Him the bricks. It’s a joy to watch Him work.

And that’s the thing. We all need time to stop and think, to check we are going the right direction. To make sure we are in the right place to pass Him the bricks.

So it’s thank you to youth work magazine and thank you to Jesus for his perfect timing, bringing together some time off for me and the chance to ask Him “What next?”
