Transitions, the call of God, and the future

2 Oct

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths. –  Proverbs 3:5-6  (NKJV)

Those verses have long been among my “life verses” but I have clung to them especially during the last few weeks. As many readers of this blog have already heard, on Sunday, September 22nd, I was called as Senior Pastor of Lakeside Baptist Church in the Birmingham, Alabama area.  Actually, it’s the Acton Road exit off Interstate 459 if you want to get specific!   It was a glorious weekend with the Lakeside church family, and I am looking forward to getting started serving among those great servants of Christ. However, leaving our church family here at Whitesburg will be exceedingly difficult and sad for all of the Corbin family.  We have spent some of the happiest, best years of our lives here and love everyone at Whitesburg. Pray for us during this time of transition.  My first Sunday in the pulpit as Pastor at Lakeside will be October 20.

The main reason I am writing this post is to update readers on what God is doing in my life and ministry. Needless to say, I have just a few things going on right now!  I do plan to continue this blog/website while I serve at Lakeside, although I may retool and update it a little bit. Please be patient, and I will get back to blogging soon.  Thanks for your prayers!
