Is hard. And I fail miserably at it. Every. Single. Day.
I’ve learned a lot - that becoming a Christian – at least for me – is not a single aha moment. I mean it was kind of like an epiphany in that during a random moment at a Bible Study, I realized that what I was looking for had been there all along. And that realization has really given me tremendous direction in my life.
I suspect that my gift lies more with what I can do rather than what I can say and that the master plan was never for me to be in any role that puts much attention on me. But you never know. Our pastor said something a few weeks ago that has been on my mind. He said that when we open ourselves to what the Lord wants, something wonderful and unexpected can happen. That sounds really good to me. I’m always up for a challenge and I wait patiently for what my role on earth is meant to be. I just really hope that I know it, when He tells me. I've been told that it could be years before I know.
I was really naive to think that simply by accepting God that the Christian road was wide open and easily navigated. I've found that instead, the Christian life is a journey. It looks as if it is going to be very interesting and very rewarding. I just really wish that there was a map.
