I was thinking today about what I needed to get done. I briefly was thinking about the multitude of things being done for Christ throughout the mission. As the mission has grown, I find it harder and harder to visualize that in my mind.
That isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Another thing is trying to keep up with God on what will happen. Someone asked me recently if we "ever tried to do something, and didn't pray about it, and it didn't work out?" They asked because their experience (someone very close to us) was that everything always just came together.
I agree...God has done amazing work in the mission throughout the years. But of course, not everything has worked out, or at least as how we thought/planned. And certainly we got ahead of ourselves, ahead of God, at points along the way. Hopefully, with growing in Him and His wisdom, less now than when we started, but it happens. Plus there are times you think you are as sure as some other time...and the plans fall flat. Or...seemingly fall flat.
This isn't Lucy pulling the football though. Occasionally it might feel like that, but knowing all the other times He kicked the football Himself, you can still hold to the right perspective when what you see would try to convince you otherwise.
23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
