Do You Hear It, Too?

After 3 years in Zambia, we have been back in the States for 5 months.  We have only about 5 weeks to go before we return back to the mission field.  I was concerned when we returned that America would call to me and even though we have enjoyed so many aspects of these United States, I am relieved to say that it is time that we return to Zambia.  

I hear the Lord calling me and He is calling me to Himself.  He has kept that call strong through these months in the States.  It has not wavered.  We have recently had a change of ministry in Zambia and this has thrown me into a dark whirlwind of questioning the Lord.  WHY has He done this?  Does He really KNOW what He is doing?  HOW can He expect me to move?  Why don't I WANT to do what the Lord has told us to do?  One of the ways that I am working through this is to set my whole heart on Jesus and not focus on where I am or what I am doing.  It's only Jesus that matters.  He has been so patient with me and for that, I am extremely grateful.  

These words from Dennis Jernigan have been flowing through my mind and thoughts lately and I continue to pray that no matter what, where or why - I will continue to heed His call to Himself and continue to trust that He is now and will always be my all in all.  I pray that you also hear Him calling, calling you to Himself.  Open our ears, Lord, that we may all hear...

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I'd be a fool
You are my all in all
