New Year’s is just around the corner. Resolutions are made. Goals are set. New calendars purchased. It’s the right time.
The right time for what? Our children’s pastor spoke this past Sunday on not waiting. Many of us are waiting. Waiting for God to move. Waiting until…you name it. After the service, I had the luxury of finishing the book “A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael” by Elisabeth Elliot
“Make us Thy labourers,
Let us not dream of ever looking back,
Let not our knees be feeble, hands be slack,
O make us strong to labour, strong to bear,
From the rising of the morning til the stars appear.” – Amy Carmichael
I am challenged by the life of this missionary from Ireland who spent her entire life in South India without a furlough. I am challenged to not wait; not to waste a single day being passive. He has something for us TODAY. Someone for us to serve. Someone who needs to be loved and encouraged.
Enjoy your New Year’s celebration this year and know that HE has something for you this day; this year!
Happy New Year’s!
