I did a blog a few months ago on good friends of ours who had just moved to Thailand to follow the Lord’s call in their lives. I got a pleasant surprise at Christmas time when Becky called me while I was in the grocery store. It was so great to hear from her!
Well, today I saw a blog post they wrote for their church in Seattle, and although it wasn’t as great as a phone call, it was like talking to them again. They wrote a great post about following your call. The words are full of wisdom. Many people think that if they follow God’s call everything will be wonderful from there on out. Um, not so much. Doing what God calls you to is hard! It could be defined as terribly wonderful. I think the having Christmas in shorts part would be wonderful, and it’s terrible that I am not there.
Here is a link to the blog with the lessons about following your call that the Keenes have learned in the few months they have lived in Thailand. http://www.fcaministers.com/9-lessons-learned-about-following-your-call/#.VNTuKNX3-iw If you are currently following a call of the Lord or just figuring it out, I hope you will read it and take it to heart.
