The calling that never was

Leviticus 26:4
I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit.

 

Years ago I felt God calling me to Zambia. The thought of thousands of children left with no one to love them or care for them [after losing their parents to AIDS] set my heart on fire. I was sold. I set out to begin earning money for my trip, then I would apply once I reached the total. Upon reaching the set amount needed, I was no longer feeling called there. I was left with around $5,000 &  plenty of confusion. It sat in my savings account for the longest time. I continued to work for a good while after that, but later withdrew portions of the saved $5,000 while I was in college [Ecola Bible School] with no income. After graduating in May, I was left with about $3,200 & by that point, I was feeling called to attend New Tribes Bible Institute. Currently, I have enough money saved to pay for the first semester (half of the first year) but still have to continue to save for plane tickets/baggage, unforeseen expenses, the next semester, and so on.

 

God had me saving for a college I never knew I would attend.

 

Seeing God’s golden thread of guidance throughout my life is one of the most empowering & reassuring things. If God’s plan for me is to attend New Tribes Bible Institute, then absolutely nothing of this world can thwart that.

 

Romans 8:38-39

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Our God is a God of omnipotence. We are so feeble in our attempts to control our lives of mere humanness. He has so much more for us, we just need to trust Him with every aspect of our lives.
