Busy Times, Time is Short

So these days have been busier than ever. It’s been LB Convention time this week, and I’ve been putting in some full days for that. Tomorrow after work I head down to the Twin Cities for the night, and in the morninig begin my trip out to Michigan. Every day, and every week, I see my time hear coming closer to an end. I’m constantly torn between feelings of excitement for what God has to come, and sadness when thinking of all the people that I’ll be leaving behind. I don’t know what God has in store for me. What I do know is that if God says “go” then that is what I must do. There is of course more to this than simply me going out into the unknown. God has blessed me with a relationship, one that is with one of His most amazing daughters. I may not know what He has next for me, but I do know that I have someone name Vanessa that He has brought into my life to be there as He reveals His plan to me.

The theme this year at the convention has been “Follow Me”, and this has ministered to me in more ways than I can even express. In my heart that is exactly what I wish to do. My desire is to follow Christ wherever He leads me. He knows they way I must go, the timing I must do it in, and the steps I must take to get there. When we put our complete trust in Him, we can know that He is always there with us each step of the way. I am so thankful for a God that loves me so much to be willing to tend one who is just a sheep. Sheep can be pretty dumb animals, they can get lost easily, and get themselves into trouble. It takes a loving shepherd to help the sheep. We have a Great Shepherd that knows we are sheep, and yet still loves us, so much in fact that He gave His own life for us. I am so thankful for that.

Well, I have some laundry to tend to, and it is getting late. My days ahead are filled with mystery, but I know that all I need is Jesus to carry me forward.
