You Want Me to WHAT?
I was trying not to scream, but I might as well have thrown a full-blown tantrum in the middle of the woods.
"I'm sorry God...but...WHAT? WHERE?"
I felt like God was telling me to go to the Middle East with iEdge for two years but He was forgetting all these important details:
I'm not good enough.
I'm too young/inexperienced.
I could never raise the money.
I have the memory of a goldfish and I never memorized the TMS.. (Am I even a Navigator?!)
I could never give up bacon.
Suddenly my Bible "coincidentally" blew open to Isaiah 55:12-13:
"You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord’s renown,
for an everlasting sign,
that will endure forever.”
I'm not 'good enough'. Neither are you.
And none of us ever will be.
But that's ok.
He's bigger than all our weaknesses.
And it will be His glory that shines in the end.
So what's your excuse?
Not good enough? Not ready? Don't have it all together? That's ok. Jesus said come as you are.
...Because HE has IT.
