Does This Mean That I Am Over It?

I just read that a church here in Eastern North Carolina is looking for a preacher. I have preached at this church on numerous occasions and got along with them splendidly. They just hired their last preacher in 2008...I know this because I filled their pulpit while they waited for him to move from Ohio.

Two months ago I would have already sent my resume and a CD of a sermon. I would be telling everyone to be praying that a door might be opened for me. I would be desperately hoping that they would be interested in talking to me again.

You know what my response was? I laughed and left the website. I called my wife and we had a good laugh about it together. You know what? I do not believe that I want to be a preacher anymore. As much as I enjoy doing it...the church has pretty much killed any desire I have to serve in that capacity.

What does that mean? I do not know...but I am thinking about it.
