Waiting for the call

So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of His call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do.  Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with Him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.                      2 Thessalonians 1:11-12

These verses were a part of my quite time reading this week.  Wow.  I read this yesterday while I was waiting to pick up C from school. After I read this, I just sat and thought.  I have thought a lot over the last several months, weeks, days, about God's call on my life.  I know that we were called to adopt our precious little one from Rwanda.  There have been other things that I also know that we were called to do.  

My thought now is, what is in the future? What will God give us as our path?  I do worry about this.  Where will He take us?  But, after reading these verses, I know that whatever He puts in front of us, He will give us the power to accomplish it.  It is all in His glory and it really doesn't matter how much I worry about it.  I want to live sacrificially for the mission. I want to love people the way Jesus loves me.  I want to be a better person.

Hi Ashley: Got the note on my blog re: your progress. You are so close and I just know your dossier will be on its way to Rwanda very soon. And I love your recent post--inspirational in my constant journey to be a better human being.
Thinking of you! Rebecca
