All planned up and no where to go………


I am a horribly impatient person. I sometimes wish for the future to happen now. It’s not that I dislike what I’m doing now necessarily. Take for example my present situation. I am extremely happy as the pastor at Missouri Valley. I love the church, I love the people and I’m excited about what God is doing among us. At the same time, I constantly wonder what’s up ahead. I’ve decided that it’s a combination of two things. First, I’m sure that my background growing up moving all the time has a great deal to do with it. At this point I’ve moved 25 times and I think it’s probably hard for me to sit still in one place for very long. (Not to mention my hyperactive tendencies) Secondly, though, I’m convinced that God has a plan for my life involving the mission field. I feel so strongly about that! Whether it’s back overseas or whether it’s somewhere in the US (preferably the west coast) I’m not sure but I don’t know if I can be satisfied until I’m there.
 
I actually just thought of one final item. I imagine that my unsettled life as far as my career also has something to do with it. My entire life, even now, I have been and I am identified as a student. I am seen as someone “on their way” to an end. I think there’s a strong desire on my part to be doing, in a full time way, what it is that I will do for the rest of my life.
 
It sure gives me something to think about…………………
