Many great things happened to me this year. The Lord took me on a pain filled journey only to completely blow my mind.
It started in a meeting where somebody offered me a chance to become a community pastor. The plan was discussed and accepted by myself. The months passed by and nothing was ever said from the other person involved.
I was angry, disappointed and wanted to run away and hide.
Then I got a call to say that the Pastor from the Free Church of Scotland wanted to meet me. His name was Rory. I met and decided to try helping out at a group called Road to Recovery which meets in Ayr.
Over the months I began to love the church there. I also have huge respect for Rory and his wife Kirsteen. They are an awesome couple.
They encouraged me to do a theology course. I love this course very much. I want to do a theology degree and plant a church. I feel as if I am doing the things that I was promised at the start of the year.
I want to encourage people this Christmas if you have been promised something and let down, then just carry on because if God has promised it then it will come to pass.
I pray you have a merry Christmas.
