I get the question a lot from people, "what now?" As it nears the end of summer I ask myself this one daily. But what do you say when you don't have a plan, or a next step, or anything concrete to offer? I usually say I am waiting to see what God provides. These past couple weeks however, I have changed my tactics. I have looked at the doors before me that appear to be open... and I am walking through them.
What this means is that I have seen God provide places for me to step out in faith and I am now prayerfully taking those steps. So far I have had a no, a maybe, and a go for it. So I am not returning to Mexico, I am applying to Global Recordings Network, and I am flying out to Florida on Sunday to check out I-TEC. As I go on these faith journeys I am realizing that there is a lot to be learned from letting the Lord lead in the midst of action. I spent a great two months of summer seeking God's plans with no sure answers. I don't feel those months were wasted. Now I am in a month of actively seeking the things that God revealed to me in that time and even with the uncertainty still at play, I don't feel my actions are wasted either.
I would greatly appreciate your prayers this next week as I venture to the other end of the US of A to see if the Florida door is open or closed. Either way, I am excited to be able to experience a part of missions history by visiting I-TEC. I am also curious to see how this Southern Californian reacts to the humidity. And I am very much encouraged by the support I have received to get there. Thank you for buying apple pies everyone!
