But where I struggle is the leaving... Why does God bring me to places only to have me leave... And why am I almost always walking away from these trips more encouraged and blessed personally, rather than me doing all the encouraging and blessing to the missionaries or people there!
There's a deep desire in us to continually be searching for that "PLACE" that God wants us to be in. Some do find it. For some it's a specific job. Others a church. Others it is a different country and working as a missionary there. But for me... It's more of a Spiritual RV... That certainly doesn't mean I don't struggle wi specific th thinking "should i move to Guatemala? should i be helping more with youth group? should i give more money to others?"
What I have to do is take all my thoughts captive... because the world does influence me. my church does influence me. my job does influence me. BUT it is that still small voice of the spirit that needs to be my co-pilot. So each time i come home from a trip , i spend loads of time tuning into my thoughts... tuning into HIS words. The mind of Christ must guide me... not the world...
Do i always get it right? NOPE!!! but each time i get a little better at submitting myself to His plan a little quicker.
Blessings and peace_
