Rita Springer has a song that says “I don’t understand your ways but I will give you my song….It’s gonna be worth it.”
I was talking with my mother the other day and she said something that resonated with me. I was telling her about our situation and wondering how we were going to keep on with this lifestyle we’ve been leading. Wondering what we were going to do if x y and z don’t line up. She said to me that the path of faith that we have chosen isn’t one that is supposed to be easy, lucrative or safe. Scripture actually points to the opposite. Our goal is to help people find their way back to God and if I can just look at it that way, my reward system will look a lot different.
I am finding that I have to continually remind myself of this. Like “taking the thoughts captive and making them obedient to Christ.” And like my friend Kasey said to me the other day, remind ourselves that God says “I am who I say I am!”
