I continue to be blown away by how God is revealing Himself to me this week in many ways. This morning I picked up a devotional book I hadn’t read in a while, turned to where my marker was and read the message entitled “The Compelling Force of the Call” by Oswald Chambers. The verse it was based on was “Woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!” (1 Corinthians 9:16) That fact is, I miss Jeep a lot when he goes on these mission trips. But what I felt God was showing me clearly through His Word this morning is that Jeep goes because he is being obedient to God’s call . (Romans 1:1) Woe be to him if he does not go and woe be to me if I would ever stand in the way! Yikes! Jeep calling is to go where he feels God is sending him to share the gospel message and my calling is to give him my blessing and “hold the fort” while he is away. I must say that each time Jeep returns from a mission trip he comes back a better man and for this I am blessed beyond measure! God is good!
Thanks for your prayer! Jeep and the team will be home tonight!
