The daily devotional I follow reminded me of a forgotten truth last week. It read, “Someone has called Elijah's journey the place called there”. In 1 Kings, God always directed Elijah to go ‘there’ or for a widow to feed Elijah ‘there’ and later the house of Cornelius was ‘there’ to Peter. God is always letting us know where ‘there’ is in our lives so He can sustain and bless us.
‘There” might not always be the place we would naturally choose, however, the greatest blessing occurs when we are obedient and go. I have been exceptionally blessed in going to those places that are not in my plan and being reminded of those experiences is just humbling. Most unpredictable calling was China.
I am so blessed. I have married my perfect mate, been accepted into a God-fearing family, and now serving a great employer in our new home town. Blake and I love LaGrange and am confident that we are there and there is nothing sweeter than being in God’s good and perfect will.
