Mission “Possible”

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow.

This week, I’ve been praying for joy.

Last night, I got a Sovereign-appointed phone call.

Today, I think I have that joy.

This morning, I woke up fairly giddy.

At this rate, tomorrow, I’ll explode!

Last night, a pastor presented a ministry opportunity for me to pray and consider.  It’s a big one (especially for a working woman); but I’d love to be used by the Lord—so I’m praying for wisdom and insight.

Then, early today I tackled a task I meant to get to last night: adding leaves back into my dinner table.  I moved the chairs, slid the centerpiece, leaned over, and…  screech!  “Rats! I always forget: I never have been able to handle this one by myself.” 

The. … Light. … Went. … On.

Right now, this service need seems like “Mission Impossible.”  But “should I choose to accept it,” it will be with the help of a solid core of servants, many of whom I’ve worked with often over the last two years.

As I write this, my dinner table is a shambles; a project started by the lady of the house.  But it cannot be completed without my “helper.”

This lesson just keeps getting deeper, doesn’t it?

I will not leave you as orphans

I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.

the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things

Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

You are welcome to return to this blog-post once in awhile for encouragement.  It’s the Internet, after all: this message will not self-destruct in five seconds.
