On Sunday, I wrote this little note to myself: “It is all up to God to care for us. So far, He has been putting everything into place. We have the land, we are getting the house. He blessed our reversal surgery. Now we have a new dilemma — yet it is not our dilemma, but God’s. How will my job search integrate with leaving the Air Force? How will our new baby integrate with the adoption? What will the timing of it all be?”
Yesterday, I was referred to Jeremiah 6:16 by a really good friend and mentor in Oklahoma: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Wow! What a moving verse, and it describes accurately where we are. We are seeking to follow after God in the paths followed by the ancients, the paths followed by the first-century church. We seek to be in the world, but not of the world. We seek the right path, and we seek God’s strength so that we might stay on that right path. We are at a crossroads. God will lead us in the direction we should go.
