A Few Thoughts

Well, it's finally Friday! I can't believe I've almost completed my first week of school! I have a quiz to take sometime before Sunday at midnight. I think I'll do it first thing Saturday morning and get it out of the way. I think I'm ready for it, so there's no need in procrastinating, right?

I wanted to share with you some thoughts I had this morning. On my ride to work every weekeday, I use that time to pray and sing praises to God (along with cds of course). I probably look ridiculous to people I pass, talking to someone they can't see, but who cares? It's such a special time for me - no distractions, I'm alone, and am on my 4th cup of coffee (I do LOVE coffee!).

This morning after my prayer, I was listening to some music and thinking about times in my life when I've run from God and times when I've searched for him. I can always tell when He takes my thoughts and inspires my heart to write. I instantly thought of how we play hide-and-seek when we're children. I wanted so badly to pull over and just write the article. That's how I am - when I'm inspired, it just flows out and is done very quickly. But I had to keep moving to get to work on time.

While I am thankful to have a job, and I do like what I do, it's always sad to me when reality reminds me that I don't have enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do for the Lord. I know He has a plan and I'm working where I am because that's where He wants me for now. I'm just so eager to be in ministry full time. By this I mean having each work day devoted to write, minister, etc. without the responsibilities demanded by a secular work place.

How about any of you? Are you working in your dream job? Are you doing what you feel the Lord's put on your heart to do for him?

Please pray for me concerning this. I'm trying to be content and do what I can. I just want the opportunity to do so much more. Pray for God's direction and guidance.

On another note........my family and I are praying for an opportunity to go on a mission trip. My 15 yr. old son feels that God's calling him to full time missions when he's through with his schooling. So we want to expose him to as many opportunities as possible while he's at home.

There's a possibility that we may be able to go to New York this summer and minister to some Chinese children. I don't know any details, but I know if it's the Lord's will it will happen.
