Coming “Home”: Part Five
Where do you go from here?
The NLT translation describes Psalm 121 as being a “song for pilgrims,” and sometimes I feel a lot like a weary, wandering pilgrim.
“I look up to the mountains—
does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth
He will not let you stumble;
the one who watches over you will not slumber.
Indeed, he who watches over Israel
never slumbers or sleeps.
The Lord himself watches over you!
The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.
The sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon at night.
The Lord keeps you from all harm
and watches over your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go,
both now and forever.”
God is entirely faithful!
I am confident. Confident that I am exactly where I am suppose to be, here in the US… here in Kansas City.
I am looking for what God is doing right now. He isn’t done with me… far from it. I can rejoice in what He is doing in this moment and be thankful that I get to be part of it.
I want to look for what God wants to do in and through me right now. Fortunately, he has purposes for everyone… everywhere. Who am I to think I have a say in the part of the story He wants me to play?
I can continue doing, what He has called me to do in this moment (which happens to be working in a missions organization). He wants me to be fully present and engaged. I still have the privilege and responsible to the Great Commission… here in KC and around the world.
I am to be obedient. In the moments that are big and the moments and nudges that are small. The ones that are easy and fun and the ones that are hard.
I can trust God to be God, and because of my grace… I will follow.
