God's Will

All too often I hear about people who have turned from what they claimed the Lord has called them to do. College, marriage, mission field, occupation. I don't think the Lord would have us changing it up every couple years. I know that young ladies my age who have taken on a teaching postion may stay a year or two at one place and then leave because they didn't get what they wanted (i.e. a husband). They are really searching out their own will, not God's. I've had a number of people ask me if I am returning to teach next year. Most certainly. This is where the Lord want's me. If I am to marry, then He will bring the guy here or make it quite clear in where I am to be. This time last year I had no idea that I'd be where I am at now. I love teaching my children and the ministries I am involoved in. I am getting to know the people and the area better each day.

One piece of information I got from college was to find God's Will and do it. Everything else will come in God's timing. I like listening to stories from peoples' lives when they just focused on God and everything turned out all right. It gives me goose bumps!

I totally agree with you!!! You post made me think about just a few weeks ago we were talking with the people who just moved in behind us. You can tell these people do not live a very good life and the children do not understand about God or church because of questions they have asked me about it. Anyway, the man was making some comments about attending church and how he goes to make fun of the preacher because he can always catch them in a lie. I asked him if he thought that he knew the Bible that well and he told me that he has been called to be a preacher since a child. I did not say anything because to be honest he was making me a little angry . . . but I wanted to aske him if he thought that then why in the world was he living the way he is, and his children not even knowing who God is? It just bumfuzzles me!!!!!

Someone said, knowing God well is knowing God's Will. Anyway, I know we need to know and do God's Will everyday, it isn't an occasional need.

Are you going to make it to the Preaching Conference at Fairhaven?
