Looking Up from the Deep Down  

Posted by Benjie in ,

It was truly a blessing to have missionary Darrel Hathcock in our church last Sunday. His words about the on-going work in Belarus as well as his challenge to each of us to be missionaries where we are was inspiring.

In respect to that, we learn the same kinds of lessons from Jonah. Perhaps they are not always the lessons that we desire to learn, nor do they come in the way we desire them. Sometimes it is required for us to find ourselves in the darkness of despair before we are ready to serve God in the capacity that He has envisioned. I would venture to admit that usually it is because we are too busy trying to serve Him in the way WE have envisioned.

Let’s take time before we reach bottom to adjust our vision from ourselves to God that we may serve Him more fully today.
