Have you noticed all of the organic foods? Organic milk… organic eggs… organic meats… I’m waiting for them to come up with an organic twinkie! My wife Martha has started buying everything organic that’s available. Here’s the deal… organic is supposed to be better for you because they are grown without any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Now we buy eggs that come straight from the mother hen. Actually now I’m kind of into the whole organic thing.
I started reading the book Organic Church recently. The subtitle is “Growing Faith Where Life Happens”. I haven’t finished reading it yet, but the basic point of the book is that ministry happens best not in planned ways, but naturally, organically and often when we’re on our way to do something else. I like to call it “Holy Spirit led”. We have a plan and we set goals but God is directing us and has the freedom to change our plans anytime He wants.
Proverbs 16:9 says,
“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.”(NLT)
Are you living your life in an organic way? Make sure that you allow God to interrupt your plans this week. We never know what awesome things He’s up to.
