Grateful and Blessed

I've made it to the International Learning Center (ILC). Since it is over a twelve hour drive from the Shoals and my having to arrive at ILC prior to 5 PM, I decided to split up the drive. I left Alabama on Sunday right after the morning service at Grace Life and arrived at Ninth & O Baptist Church (where I was a member while at Southern Seminary) just in time for the evening service. I had planned to leave for ILC yesterday morning, but God had other plans in mind and had me stay in Louisville for a day. Indeed, though a man plans his ways, the Lord directs his steps (Prov 16:9). While pulling in the parking lot of Ninth & O, my front tire blew out. I am grateful to God that it happened where it did instead of on the interstate at 70 mph. Moreover, I was able to see more of my friends, particular Chris Mitchell who helped me get a new tire. I left early this morning and made it to Rockville without any trouble. For most of the trip, I listened to the book The Shadow of the Almighty on my mp3 player which was a blessing. I am looking forward to finishing it this week should time permit. I may listen to it again on my return trip in a couple of months. Thank you for your prayers.

In His Abundant Grace,
