"Not more surely is the place prepared for us in the heavenly mansions than is the special place designated on earth where we are to work for God." --COL, pg 327
I ponder it. There's so much purpose in a life lived for God. And I ask God, "Where's my special place?" and the answer comes, "Look around, my child. Wake up to the needs surrounding you! Have you been blind these past 4 months?"
Have you ever overlooked your special place?
I know I have. In Thailand, the needs were easy to spot. But on the home front, it took me a little longer. But with God's help, I slowly began to see the many mission fields here. And what mission fields they are!
I'll never give up my dream of returning to Asia. It's a dream that God has given me. But I also won't be such a fool as to ignore the pressing mission fields here, while I continue my education. God's special place for me right now---just happens to be right where I am. Special place, here I am. =)
