IMG_0601 To walk into work every day and feel God's presence in the details, the everyday, the ordinary.

It's not the place, it's not that it's a ministry. It's where your talents and gifts meet God's passion. It's a community of people loving each other and doing everything they can to serve others and lift Jesus high.

Sorry to get all introspective, but you've gotta know that this is possible! That God's dreams in your heart aren't going to lead to a dead end. That He's going to use your Type A socially awkward self to connect people to His work around the world.

God led Chris and I to turn down a job at a place we loved with a paycheck that was super generous and comfortable. We had no idea what we were doing or where we were going. I had no idea why He was stirring a passion in my heart for missions and volunteer appreciation and event planning that seemed to go nowhere.

But then...well, He knew. And He knows for you, too. He's got your dreams, your skills, your experience and passion. He's going to walk you through jobs and places you feel like are dead ends until you turn a corner and see the beauty He has laid before you.

Okay, this got preachy and long fast. But I've just got to praise my God for this road He's led me down and thank Him for His all knowing guidance and power.
