Although I love to travel. They say there is no place like home. Home is where the heart is. Here I have friends and family that support me throughout my crazy decision making. I am so happy that the Lord has called to stay home for the past summer, but it was a tough decision. I thoroughly thought out the decision. I miss the mountains. I miss the people. I miss the weather. I miss the people. But when the Lord calls, who am I to argue?
“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” – Mark 11:24
I believe that everyone has this feeling and that is why I chose to say anything about it. Sometimes we may feel like our prayers are not being answered. That we are not being heard. But I assure you, we are. It may not be exactly how we wanted them to be answered, but they were answered the way that God intended them to be.
I begged God to open doors for me to return the Billings this summer. I begged in prayer selfishly. I did not see the doors he was opening here in Thomasville. I look back now and wonder, why in the world did I beg? Why was I so selfish? I am beyond happy for the opportunities that came my way. I found new friends that I will cherish forever, and I rekindled old friendships. I was able to serve in my home church and come closer to God.
The Lord answered my prayers in a way that I did not realize. I asked for the Lord to send me where I was needed. He did.
I have been so selfish this past year. I still find myself wishing I was somewhere else, but then I have to “have a talk” with myself. The lord has placed me right where I need to be. I could not ask for anything more.
