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

Loving God in the Moment
Thursday, October 27, 2005
Numbers have never been my forte. I don’t particularly like them – even when they don’t deal with percentages! I used to hate numbers; after reading Dr. Joseph LeDoux’s, The Emotional Brain I came away exchanging my negative outlook for a more positive and richer view point. Not to say I like numbers, but I at least don’t have that clammy hand feel, eyes going blank, and hair standing on end when standing at the cash register, wanting to write a check for over the amount anymore! Giggle.
But this 90% thing has been a buggabear! I know that God has a reason for all things that He does in our lives. But this amount has loomed in the offing for quite a while. I have caught site of it several times during my journey to get on the field – but, it has always alluded me.
You see, at 90% I can begin to look at actually moving to Europe – at 90% I can finalize the plans. I can do this at 90% -- but, oh there is one more thing that has to happen…
I have to have an outgoing fund raised in total!
I am praying that this outgoing sum comes in quickly. You see, I opened my appointee roster tonight. For the first time in the monthly earned column under my name it didn’t have 15%, 50%, 75%, 78% or even 82%.
That nine and that zero lay snuggled by that percentage sign – and I copied it off for posterity!
