Know the One Who Is Leading

This picture sits on my screen saver as a reminder that even though the days ahead remain unclear and hold much uncertainty.. the thing I know for certain is that I cling to the One I love and trust He is leading me every step of the way.

Walking in faith and taking that next leap of faith not only takes a huge amount of courage, it also takes knowing the One who is faithful to the end.

The one who calls you is faithful and He will do it” -1 Thessalonians 5:24

God is faithful until the end.  I have had to learn to hold steadfast to this truth time and again over the years…and now I am facing a crossroad in which this is being tested once again.  Recently, I had to make quite a huge decision, one that was not easy in the least.  An opportunity unexpectedly came our way for Xavier to attend a high school in the states to develop his basketball training in future preparation for college.  Many mixed feelings are going on in my heart and mind for this will mean a move back to the states and subsequently means leaving Korea, ending almost eight years of orphanage ministry.  This will also mean many sad goodbyes, and closing a chapter of my life in Korea that I never expected to come so soon.   When I first accepted the call into ministry over 7 years ago, it was indefinite, and now, I am unsure now of what exactly the future holds.

I do know one thing though for sure, above all else, God is faithful to the end. In the natural, I have many worries and anxieties about how we will transition back to the states, the usual money worries, where I will live, and how other things will work out.  While none of that is clear to me just yet, I rest in knowing that God is a good God and will work all things out for our good.  When I become anxious about this or that,  I think about the worst case scenario, such as I will not have enough money, or I won’t find a decent place to live….  Then I think about my relationship as a mother to Xavier.  As a parent, if I have the resources, would I ever withhold the most basic necessities from him? Absolutely not!!  It’s silly to even think that.  Then would the God of the universe, the One who owns all the resources, holds the world in place, and preserves our lives in the palm of His hand…  would a perfect Father withhold any good thing from His child?  Never!!!

I step out in faith, this most momentous leap of faith, trusting God will lead every step of the way.  In 2007, when I took the huge leap of faith to come to Korea, God orchestrated every step so perfectly and provided miraculously time after time.  I hold steadfast to His faithfulness and trusting He is paving the way to something new in this next season back to America.  For now, I know that Korea, along with many of you brothers and sisters, as well as the dear precious children at the orphanage, hold such a near and dear place in my heart, I will be back to Korea without a doubt.  I am not sure in what capacity or how that will look. However, I am confident in this: that he who began a good work, will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.  -Philippians 1:6

Be encouraged brothers and sisters in Christ~~ that no matter what uncertainty that lies ahead, keep the faith and draw even closer to the One who is leading.
