Everyone Needs...

Today at church we sang the song, "Mighty to Save." These words are exactly why I believe so strongly in missions!

Everyone needs compassion,
Love that's never failing;
Let mercy fall on me.

Everyone needs forgiveness,
The kindness of a Saviour;
The hope of nations.

Ukraine is forever in my heart; I do not know if/when I will be able to go back. Just like I need compassion, unfailing love, forgiveness, the grace only God can give, and hope...so do Ukrainians. My time in the USA, when I had planned on serving Christ overseas, continues to be a challenge. (Praise the Lord my health has stabilized!) It's not challenging because I have a particularly difficult life, rather it's challenging because my dreams have been shattered.

Today was youth Sunday, and the "Senior preahers" preached on! One of the girls made a very good point, "We should have full faith that where God is calling us/has placed us, will be/is a place of great joy!" I have failed to be an obedient servant, and serve Christ with great joy during this time, although, that is what He is calling me to do. Time for an attitude check? Yes, I think so. I am missing the GREAT JOY! Let mercy fall on me.

Do you think your mission field is in San Antonio and you were being tested to see if you would follow to the far ends of the earth?
