God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson
Thanks for visiting,
After I get all of the mutating missionary blogs from the past re-posted here, I will continue writing fresh ones. Enjoy the review...

Loving God in the Moment
God is worthy of your time.
God is worthy of your focus.
He's not always cheery, but He is always beautiful.
He IS the light in the darkness.
Ich bin krank. Ja. Ich hatte Kopfschmerzen und ein bißchen Schwindel. Es ist ein Virus. Ich habe keine Geduld mehr für ihn. Aber ich glaube, es ist hier zu bleiben.
Translation: I have been sick. Yes. I have had a headache and a bit of dizziness. It is a virus. I have no more patience for it. But I believe, it is here to stay.
I'm in the process of making some decisions for summer plans. I am very excited about the possibilities. God is moving in some mighty interesting ways in my job world.
What does the future look like. WOW!
God orchestrates my life so beautifully. I cannot be too sad about the little virus I have.
"Once one is called, financial security, location, notoriety, applause, and power become increasingly less important. Obedience becomes the primary issue."
You know 'the call'. "When Eric Liddle, in Chariots of Fire, said to his sister, "When I run, I feel God's pleasure." When one lives obediently in the center of a call, one feels God's pleasure; one knows a strange joy." Gordon MacDonald in A Resilient Life.
And that is what I have been struggling with for the last few months. I know that when I am with the German people, sharing life, sharing love, and sharing God, I am in the center of His call. When I am teaching, or writing, I am in the center of His Call. So, when anything causes me to be derailed from those - it causes me sleepless nights. It wears me down.
(Loving the 'But God' thing.)
But God, saw me and He did it. He heard me and He did it. He loves me that much. He is amazingly loving. Even through the confusion - He covers. Even through the frustration - He loves.
