These days we hear on a regular basis, “You need to be flexible. Quit stressing! Take a step back. Go with the flow.” Do any of these phrases sound familiar? Well I must say if I am totally honest, it is difficult to be flexible or to go with the flow. I was raised in a military family, as many of you know, and my dad would always plan and do things orderly. The Bible tells us to “seek ye first the kingdom of God.” Jesus told us to “go ye into all the world and preach the gospel.” He had an urgency about His calling, to the point of being weary. But what happens when your circumstances are beyond your control?
This Saturday at 3:30 on “A Place Missionaries Call Home,” Joyce and I will be talking with John and Carol Pierce, missionaries with New Tribes Mission from their headquarters in Sanford, Fl. Many missionaries are now transitioning to ministry state side. John and Carol will share with us how God can still use you even when your life changes because of aging parents. A program you will not want to miss. We are all transitioning in one way or another.
