The unknown is not always something that one looks to with a chipper spirit. In fact, I know of none who rejoice in having no clue what comes next (in life as a whole)! As I near graduation, I am beginning to look at what the next step is for me. Do I leave the country for a few years(or forever) as a Missionary? Do I become a missionary in Chicago or some other place stateside? Maybe I'm to help the people in Midtown with the H family. Where do I go next?
This is where the need for patience comes in. I want to know on my timetable- no time flat. Nice try, Rebekah. It is something that I am just going to have to pray though and let rest as I pray. The more I mull it and chew it the more ill I become. (I'm good a placing pressure where there originally was none.) I think that there is even some fear buried deep in there. (Totally irrational, I know.)
I received some good advice from a friend today. She suggested that during my Christmas break each day I pray specifically for each opportunity, the people that need Jesus there, and where I am supposed to be. My head was so foggy I didn't even know where to begin so I'm very thankful for the suggestion.
