Everyday II: The Quiet Life

God has really been working on my heart since--well, ever since spring break, which was in late February/early March, I believe! There is a huge potential opportunity coming up, that I can't share with you all because it's far from solid yet (your prayers for God's guidance are appreciated, though!), and when it comes, if it comes, there will be a lot of excitement, a lot of terrified-ness (what's the word for that anyway?), a lot of technical details, and a lot of trust and faith in God needed!

But in the meantime I'm sitting here working at my little desk in my corner of the world. Unlike my friends, I'm not doing literature evangelism, Bible work, health evangelism, camp ministry, preaching evangelistic series, getting married, traveling the nation on a honeymoon, or anything else that anyone might see as doing "hard things" for God.

Can God use quiet lives, uninspiring events? If you question that, why don't we look to the first 30 years of Jesus' life on earth? After His birth, we only have one or two sentences surrounding three decades.

The most important thing? I think can be summed up in this quote (something of a life goal for me):
"Wherever you are, be all there. Live to the hilt every circumstance you know to be the will of God." (Jim Elliot)

Praying for whatever the potential opportunity is. That you will see God's will clearly.
