When God called Sharon and David Kealy to serve Him full time as missionaries where ever He would lead, it followed a lifetime of serving Him at the local church as active lay people. Continuing worthy of a calling I reflect on what has become a life verse for me, “I thank Christ Jesus our LORD, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into (His) service;” I Timothy 1:12
Life happens is a term a friend shared with me recently when we were discussing the graduation of students from my high school as we were presenting scholarships for them to continue their education in vocational studies.
As Christians we face the same things that all people face. We are not exempt life’s challenges. Yes, life happens. How we respond is what makes the Christian different. We aways need to focus on God for direction and for peace that passes all understanding; especially in challenging times. When life happens seek encouragement from God’s word. It always works for me.
Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. Romans 12:11-12
In light of challenges all about us our charge is to remain faithful, faithful to our calling. If you have not felt “called” to serve, ask God for direction.
These are exciting times. Reaching People far from God continues to expand our outreach by adding a new ministry in Liberia, VOX Liberia to the wonderful partner ministries we encourage and we help financially as God provides. Check out this ministry on the Global Ministries ~ Liberia site.
And the INTERN SCHOLARSHIP FUND continues as the first INTERN, Jordan Crenshaw has returned from his year in Ghana, West Africa. You can learn more about this amazing program at Global Ministries ~ Internships.
Above all, remain FAITHFUL and God will continue to direct your path. It works for us and it will for you too.
