I’d be dishonest, if I didn’t admit that as the trip looms closer, I have moments of anxiety and fear. I love how God meets us where we are and gives us exactly what we need in those moments. This year, 3 of us moms from our group have been studying the gospel of Matthew in BSF. Its been such a wonderful reminder of what a role model Jesus is for us in His reliance on prayer, focus on service, and obedience to His Father’s will. The final words of Matthew, though I’ve read them a thousand times before, struck right to my soul this spring as I prepare for this trip: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age” How good of God to remind me in my fears that not only is He always with us, but He made us to GO! This is exactly what I should be doing in this season of my life. And though I may feel inadequate and overwhelmed, I go with HIS authority. He didn’t say to go and solve all the problems of the nations, he just tells us to go and make disciples and to teach what He has commanded. And our group will do that joyfully!!!
