It’s sad, but very often I lose the excitement of being a disciple of Jesus. The passion that I have felt for the Him and His work are at times overshadowed, even squelched by my position as a vocational missionary. One of the truths that has fueled my spiritual passion is knowing that I was uniquely created to serve my Creator. He has a truly, special plan for me. So often, I am stunted by organizational mandates, habits, traditional modes of doing and I forget how exciting – truly exciting it can be to follow Jesus and allow Him to use me(just the way I am) for the benefit of others – even with all my failures and shortcomings. While organization and structure can be good, even necessary, too often I find myself investing more in the structure, planning, strategies for the benefit of the organization and less on the mission, the real unique mission that God has for me.
Here is to a new season of unhindered service with an expectation of rewarding results. Here is to the hope that my unique purpose will become part of my vocation rather than a separate pursuit and that fear will not cause me to retreat from seeing that possibility become a reality.
