Ministry Chat – F.L.O.W.

December 30, 20170 Comments

This is the first ministry chat that I have done here on Online Ministry Training since the arrival of Hurricane Irma. It has been quite a ride for the last four months or so beginning with evacuating and then coming back and getting involved in all of the recovery stuff. During this process, one of the things that has made a difference for me is trying to stay in the FLOW of the now and forever life that I have in Christ. So, I developed this little acrostic that I have found to be helpful. F.L.O.W.

1. Focus

Isaiah 26:3 (NIV)
3 You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.

2. Listen

Isaiah 50:4b (NIV)
4 …. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.

3. Observe

Isaiah 42:20a (NKJV)
20 Seeing many things, but you do not observe;

4. Wait

Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)
31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

Try it for yourself. I think you will find it helpful.
