The In Between

My prayer for the last year has been, "Lord what next? Send me! What's your desire for me!? Anything to make your heart beat a little faster and to glorify Your kingdom." And honestly, this is still the prayer I pray. I recently decided that I am an In Between. I am not really stuck, but I am not totally "there". You know, "there", the place that you know you are destined, called, or appointed to be at by God. I know confidently that I am to wait. That is what the Lord has been speaking to me. I know that I am moving in the right direction. That I am taking the steps that are necessary, I'm just not totally there. I'm in a transition season. In a time where everything doesn't necessarily make [logical] sense.
     But here is what I do know....
-I am called to love. Love everyone. Love life.
-I am called to mother. Mother nations.
-I am called to heal hearts and bodies through the power of Jesus Christ.
-I am called to smile and laugh and enjoy life.
-I am called to minister in the small ways.
-I am called to overseas missions throughout my entire life. (India is in the works now for this fall.... join in prayer for finances and more wisdom on this short-term trip and any other that the Lord may have for me.)
-I am called to rest and let God take it.
- I am called to so much more that God is still revealing.
-I am called to want more but still be content with what God has placed on my plate.

I have to remind myself of these things.... or else I get caught up in what everyone else is doing. I have to remind myself that I am still worth something even though I am not in college... Jesus is who matters. And following in what he speaks to my heart. So Lord, it's in Your hands. I am clay. You are the potter. Mold and make me.

I think I'll rejoice in this season of In Betweeness.

"I am called to want more but still be content." SO right! Girl, we are season-sisters right now. Love this-- though it's hard, I am confident that the fruit from it will be sooooooo sweet. :)
