The Journey Continues
I’m sitting here in the office on another rainy Monday and thinking of our farmers. I know many have been in the fields already and many are anxious to be back. Let’s pray for the safety of our farmers during this planting season.
This series through the book of Joshua has been personally challenging me. I’ve shared some of my hurts and frustrations, though I tend to keep most of those to myself. The theme of this series is trusting the journey. It might be better to say it’s about trusting God’s guidance and direction of the journey. As I said yesterday, we sometimes become impatient with God (or I do, at least), and we fail to trust his timing.
We can trust that God is going to accomplish his work in us. Paul wrote to the church in Philippi:
“In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus,” (Philippians 1:4-6, NIV)
The journey continues. God is still working in our lives, and we can be confident he will complete his work in us.
I think there will be some exciting announcements coming down the pike, so make sure to continue to pay attention to our publications.
I hope and pray that you continue to be well.
God bless, Brian
