Go Anywhere, Do Anything

This August, I’m leaving my cozy Minnesota home to go to the Dominican Republic for eight months. I’ll be studying Spanish and the Bible along with participating in local mission work. I’m so excited and in awe of how God has lead me to this decision these past months. Here’s how He’s been working in me. I pray when you read this you’ll be inspired to pursue your passion wholeheartedly.

From an old journal entry:

2/28/13
Lord, you are doing something.
I pray anything. I’ll go anywhere.
I think it may be easy. Oh and I am wrong. I face daily trials, struggles, and strikes from the devil.
The evil one says “you’re too young , you can’t do this, you are insignificant”
You whisper “you are strong, you are mature, you are so precious”
I read in Anything:
“To suffer in this life, to sacrifice for the name of Christ, means your reward will be great in heaven… I’ve lived trying to fix everything hurting in me with counseling and a good latte. And while none of that is bad, it never fully worked… it is supposed to hurt. War isn’t supposed to feel easy” (104)
I’ve prayed to You “help me to be strong” while I should pray “I am weak, You are strong.”
I find my strength in You, only You! I can do NOTHING WITHOUT GOD!
I say I’m sacrificing so much. When Jesus sacrificed HIS LIFE FOR US.
Help me to realize my brokenness, my sinfulness.
Help me.
I will seek You.
Always and forever,

Amen.


This was just the start of a long time searching for what was next for me. I applied for colleges and thought that was what I wanted. Yet, I have this burning desire to be more, do more, see more.

I know it won’t be easy. Following God will never be easy. In the Bible, God never calls us to be comfortable. The Bible does say we will face trials (James 1:2, 12, Romans 12:12, Romans 5:3, 2 Cor. 4:16, Psalm 34:19 to name a few).

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. -Hebrews 6:19

God gives us hope.
Hope in his grace.
Hope in the future.
Hope in heaven.

Find out what are your passions, your strengths, your spiritual gifts.
Ask God to use you to further His kingdom.
Be willing to drop everything and go somewhere.
Know that ministry or mission work is not the only option to evangelize.

God could be calling you to go to Africa, He could be calling you to talk to one of your co-workers, or He could be calling you to just draw closer to Him.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
