There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: Eccl. 3:1
Wednesday, June 22, 2011
Recently, I have been reading Ecclesiastes 3. For everything there is a season. There is a time for everything. A time to heal, plant, pluck, weep, laugh, cast away, gather; you name it there is a time for it. I wonder though if there is ever a time for distraction or if that is the one thing that can be used against us when we are working towards a higher purpose. Every day, I find myself contemplating whether what I do here is worth it. Whether the sacrifices I’ve made are enough or am I being pushed to see just what is really important to me in this life and in the hereafter. I was told that I shouldn’t give up things for the ministry... and in all honesty, that is the most confusing thing I’ve ever heard. This whole mission was to be where God called me to be. I sold everything and I committed whole heartedly to my purpose and yet, I find myself at this crossroad. Which direction is the pathway less traveled? Each turn seems to be a difficult path. In two months I will be heading back to the states and my path seems to be reaching the point of the unknown. I’m very secure that God has everything under control and I’m not worried nor do I think that He will abandon me be as I reach the turning point. I am ready for what ever is next. Please be praying for me as I continue on! It is time.
