Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 New King James Version
When I completed my TESOL course the intention was to teach in Central America. The Lord however was directing me to China. I thought He was crazy and there was no way that destination was even on the radar.
As I love Jesus I obediently ventured to China even though there was dread in my heart because it was a communist country and I am a Christian.
It has been a difficult ten years travelling and teaching all along the coast from the north to the south. Through His wise guidance He has lead me to people who were open to listening about Him and accepting Him.
Sometimes the Lord will lead you where you do not want to go because you are afraid. Trust Him, obey Him and follow Him. He will be with you every step of the way.
Reflecting back on the experience the understanding came to me that His way was, is and always will be the best way.
A bonus is how much that in my difficult times and learning to trust in Him we have grown oh so very close.
What a marvelous blessing that is as well as the fact that I have helped guide others into Christ’s wonderful family.
Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rohi (Holy Spirit our Sheppard) for being such a patient, wise and strong guide in my life to take me to the places You have prepared for me to do the work You have prepared for me. I praise You in the name of the greatest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
