Our Own Burdens to Bear

Well, here we are a few days until the Fall '05 semester and I just got a hardcore burden put on me. My church has a small but strong college group already and we do an awesome weekly bible study and have our own fun events.

Perhaps we should go back...

For a bit of a history lesson about a few months ago it was put on my heart to minister to others. To stop hiding behind a guitar or music stand and start to disciple myself and those with "a little less experience" than me, whatever that means. I have been struggling with just how to do that in a more specific sense.

So... here's the deal. Just the other day someone requested for us (my church) to begin some sort of an outreach for the unsaved and sort of a believers 101 for college age people like myself.

Seems like a no-brainer right?

Not really. You see, I already feel so over-committed and stretched between ministries and work and school and... everything! I don't know if God's will is for me to start something myself, to pray for something to come along, or to just not do anything. (I'm pretty sure it's not the last one)

Whatever it is please pray along with me. I need all the help I can get.

In other news:

- I put a "guestmap" in my linkbar. Please put a marker on it so I know if anyone actually reads this stuff : )
-Please pray for some people in my church who have lost loved ones.
-Pray for the new school year and students and the various outreaches going on
-I'm sure I forgot many things

Anyway, I hope you all are well. I will post again sooner than you think. P
lease feel free to post prayer requests and comments like always.
