So, as usual, I haven’t written in a long time. Today, in order to try and get what I want to say, I’m going to keep it short so my infinitesimal attention span can work.
Lots of people are asking me if I’m going to be staying in Japan or going back to America and honestly, I’m not sure. There’s so many things to think about and consider and if I try and think about it myself, I get overwhelmed. Emotions get in my way, what I want and what’s “smart” keep on fighting each other, but, you know…I have promises to stand on.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” James 1:5 ESV
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
The last verse I have especially been meditating on lately. Right now, I’m not sure where God is leading me or what he wants me to do, but if it’s best for his will that I go back to America, so be it. If God wants me to stay in Japan, so be it.
I need God’s wisdom to help me grow and learn and know which way to go, but I also need to be pursing God and striving to be more like Christ. I need to strive for God’s kingdom, because us Christians are, after all, ambassadors of Christ and his kingdom. (2 Cor. 5:20)
Anyways, this is to briefly say that I’m trusting God to lead me where he wants me to go and I always need to remind myself daily that I need to keep running towards God and his righteousness and his wisdom is holy and perfect and always accessible to me.
See? Super brief~! Ha! I did it! Though it might not be organized the best. Oh well, it’s out there now. 🙂
