Sunday, me and Kevin Peek drove from Dallas at 8:30 am and arrived in Louisville at 12:30 a.m with the time change. It was good. We had lots of edifying conversation and memorized a psalm. We went for Dustin and Jamie's wedding. It was great to celebrate what the Lord has done. It is great to look at how the Lord works in your life. I thought I would write out his providence in the last couple of years:
I am at Temple Jr. College confused about which university to attend. I wasn't fond of Angelo State, but ended up there anyway. Turned out that all of my classes transferred. I met my boy Dustin in the weight room. We got involved in the Baptist Student Ministry under the leadership of Lee Floyd. Due mostly to Sovereign Grace Baptist Church, there were many calvinists at the BSM. I decided to prove the calvinists wrong because they were anti-evangelistic. Turns out calvinists really like the bible, and I couldnt prove them wrong. I finally understood the gospel of grace. That sends me to read many Piper books, which was great for the soul. I feel led to go into ministry, so I begin to look at seminaries. It doesn't take long to find the best in the nation - Southern. I go to visit and don't have a ride so I go to the weight room and bump into Oren and Cindy Martin from Texas, who recommend that I go to South Side in Abilene for some good expositional preaching. I visit, and love it. That summer I was mentored by the pastor, and later that summer I met Alicia Mattox, who is now Alicia White, who has been a blessing that words cannot describe. My mom is now a faithful member of South Side. Alicia and I are now at Southern. Starting this fall, 3 of my friends from Angelo State and their lovely new wives will be attending Southern: Dustin, Eron, and Chance. I deserve only the wrath of God. But he is merciful and good.
