♕ Today's Promise: "“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain”. 1 Corinthians 15:58
The Lord is taking me through a new season, things in my life are changing, and the most interesting is that I have no idea where He is taking me.
I am sure that all of us were affected by what happened during these last months, but even though I don’t see right now what He used that for in my life, I am sure that soon He will show me.
When I came to RMI as I have shared before, the Lord led in my heart the desire to have the resources here in this country where I live. There were a lot of struggles during these years, yes years not days or months!!! There were a lot of things that He wanted to teach me, and one of the things is about my calling. I was so fixated on sharing everything that I learned to the Turkish women, but every time that I had an opportunity to share, it was like talking to a wall!!! I left each meeting or conversation upset, so He showed my job is to sow, He is the one who will work on their hearts, not me. But it was just a couple of days ago that I finally understood what He called me to do in Turkey, and it is to be a Bridge Builder.
The way that He showed me was so simple that it is just HIM! He showed me that even though I am not talking with women directly about what I learned, I am living it every day. I had no idea how people paid attention to my way of living, for my love for Him, and for the passion He gave me, all of us to see marriages restored! So while I was building the bridge (preparing the book, waiting for His miracle, loving others, encouraging) then those who watched me, like friends and family, were the ones sharing and walking from one side to the other to share the good news. Just as a bridge does, connect one place to the other.
When my friends hear about a couple who are in a crisis, they share what they learned watching my life, they share about RMI, they share that there is Hope At Last! Last week, my friend asked me to pray for a meeting that she would have with a friend who was going through a marriage crisis, and she asked me for the website and the links for our Turkish page, they are the ones going, they didn’t have the connection before, they didn’t know about hope, and that God is able to restore!! But the bridge was created!!!
In a couple of days, we will have a meeting so our book will be printed and distributed!! I confess that I was a little bit anxious about what and how it will all happen, but my friend shared that this is not my job, to think about it, because He is the one who will work it all!!
I can’t wait to share more with you all about what He will do in this country. And I want to encourage you that you are just starting to never give up!! He is the one giving you the strength to continue to walk and to do His will. Ask Him to show you what He called and equipped you to do!
