Where has God planted you?

“God has placed you” (Wings of Prophecy)

Thank you Glynda for a hearing ear and an obedient heart.

Five years ago my wife and I (in our mid fifties) were ready to move on, of our own accord, south from Wisconsin to maybe Missouri. Some where we wouldn’t be constantly bombarded by the liberalism and hedonism of the Madison area (aka Moscow of the Midwest), to a place where we could talk about God to someone on the street corner without being mocked or derided ( I guess, here, only a liberal college education is a sign of intelligence to them).

Instead, to our surprise, God had a different plan and we obeyed and moved northward. We didn’t know why only that God was calling us and leading us to a specific church. That act of obedience opened our hearts and souls to cleansing, healing, and an invigorating spirit.

God then began His plan for us in my music ministry and teen ministry. Mind you, I didn’t choose teen ministry. God placed me there and placed an increasing burden for teens and the short time we have to minister. As such the ministries have blossomed. He didn’t provide me with a job, yet we have subsistence.

People, as I posted before, understand that the time is short. God has put you in a specific place, as this message confirms. Truly seek Him and what His work is for you to do. We no longer have time to seek what we can do for the future comforts, God has that under control. Seek Him for what your work is now. Whether a ministry, such as the Lord has put me here for a season, or making yourself open and available for your friends and neighbors in a ministering spirit. Have you cried out because your job is terrible and you want relief, perhaps there is a colleague at work that God wants you to minister to, or one that hasn’t started yet. Maybe you don’t like where you work and God won’t help you move away, because He has a purpose for you. And, first and foremost, neglect not your family.

Are you uncomfortable where you’re at? Seek God’s Spirit and His plan and will for you. Act in obedience and He will lift you up and strengthen you. Put bitterness aside……..

Where are you? Where has God planted you??????

I'm a musician and worship leader, intent on following wherever God leads and directs me, with His leading's in the Spirit and others bonking me on the head ( hopefully not much of the latter). My life experiences are in blue collar and white collar (engineering) employment, political office, lay ministries, national competition in track and cross country and most importantly marriage and raising a family. God has given me a unique set of skills and character to serve Him and a passion for doing it.
