This question has become a familiar prayer for me in recent weeks. I have somehow decided that there are three essential places that I need to be. (All at the same time). My prayer for God to speak to me was genuine and I intended to follow the guidance I was seeking.
What I didn’t have on the checklist I had prepared for God was the answer He gave me this morning. I believe God said, “Your presence is not critical to any of those three places. I have them under My control.” “Actually”, he continued, “I have prepared these three environments as gifts for you. Each of them will reveal more of who I AM and be useful in molding you into my image.”
There is a wonderful freedom in not being needed and a simultaneous joy in being wanted.
