Write them down; leave them with the Lord; Try to not grab them back.
That’s really difficult, isn’t it?
When your plane is dangerously low on fuel, you can 1) Let it crash; 2) Parachute
out; OR 3) Land it just before the fuel is gone. Corrie ten Boom said “There is
no hole so deep that God cannot go deeper.” CLOSE YOUR EYES: REMEMBER
back to that time you stepped through that door on the plane, walked through the
connector with heart pounding, mind racing, tears flowing, feelings of fear, gratitude,
inadequacy and anticipation. With luggage gathered that carried your ‘comfort zone’
things from ‘home’, REMEMBER entering the lobby – however fancy or primitive –
and seeing that sea of faces … those of ‘your mission field’ … hearing that roar of
unrecognizable sounds – the sounds and language you wondered if you’d ever learn!
Humbled and with a contrite spirit, you thanked the Lord for seeing you through the
long journey that began way back when. With determination, you would become a
world changer and strive to make Heaven a little more crowded! Thank you, Lord,
for saving my soul! Thank you, Lord for making me whole. Thank you, Lord, for giving
to ME Thy Great Salvation so rich and free.
With your tank filled, you can pull up your boot straps, walk through that door
(bedroom or outer) with renewed vision to meet the needs of those who have
it far worse and NEED YOU and YOUR SAVIOUR!!! He is my exceeding Joy!
(Mina Oglesby) Look the words up.
WHAT IS YOUR NEW GAME PLAN?
Even in the strong winds, let your light so shine, and never let your candle be
put out permanently.
In all of your busyness, DETERMINE to do one thing each day that will count for
Eternity. Each morning, ask the Lord to guide you to that one thing. Evaluate
your priorities at night. Record blessings and answers to prayer (No, you won’t
remember them years from now if not recorded). DETERMINE to influence
the next generation for Christ. DETERMINE to value and glean from those who
have walked in your shoes and who are nearing Heaven. They are one of your
greatest resources and mentors. DETERMINE to pray specifically for your fellow
missionaries (in your part of the world or continent) or co-workers by name. Take one each day. Pray for the very areas in which you struggle.
Theirs may be similar. No one understands better than YOU because YOU, too, walk in those shoes. WHO BETTER TO PRAY?!
WHEN IT RAINS ~ LOOK FOR RAINBOWS
WHEN IT IS DARK ~ LOOK FOR STARS
Right now, grab your Bible and read I Peter 5:7-11 and Psalm 40:5 slowly and prayerfully.
There is no greater blessing than to know that you love the Lord and serve Him in so many varied ways!
There is no greater joy than to know you ARE world-changers!
From My Heart,
Philemon v. 4-7a
