Missionary Moment

How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? — Romans 10:14

God is so amazing! He speaks to us in our language, giving us examples in life to correlate with His Word. I was absolutely blessed this morning when I checked my stats. I had received 4 views from Lebanon and 1 from Russia.

As I was pondering on this thought, my Mom asked me what I was thinking about. I shared with her that when my husband and I were at Seminary we contemplated seeking missionary opportunities. With God’s leading we decided that we had a vast mission field in our own backyard. I thought how hard it would be to pick just one place to go to minister – Africa, Indonesia, Thailand, Brazil, Philippines – see what I mean? God just opened our eyes to see this is where He wants us – United States.

God has so blessed me with this website. The thought of having one would never have crossed my mind 3 years ago. I prayed about it for about a year when God and I started this adventure. He is the One who guided everything and put the plan into action. Now barely 2 months into it He has blessed me by letting me be a missionary not only in my backyard (United States) but around the world. My heart is elated.

The visits to my website are left up to God’s leading. I have told very few people of this site and trust the Lord God to lead those He would have to come and read. How can they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How can they believe in whom they have not heard? How can they hear if we don’t tell. I thank God for giving me the words every day to write for His glory and for the world to hear. Thank You Lord God for allowing me, by the power of the Holy Spirit I received, to be Your witness in Jerusalem (United States), and in all Judea (Lebanon) and Samaria (Russia) and even to the remotest part of the earth.

One promise I can hold to: His word will not return to Him empty, without accomplishing what He desires, and without succeeding in the matter for which it is sent. Thank You again Lord for allowing me to be Your ambassador to the world as I share Your Word with them.

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon

 

but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” — Acts 1:8

So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. — Isaiah 55:11

  1. Naturally, you caught my attention. You are correct, geographical lines doesn’t diminish or dismiss the missionary call, it just places us in different locations around the world. Thankful for this day of technology and how God is using it for His glory…be blessed!

    Somehow, He has lead me here. I believe, and I’m reading. Keep writing, please. 🙂

    • Thank you John for the wonderful comment you made. It encourages me and again shows me His awesome glory. Thank you for “following” also. I truly hope God will bless you, encourage, and inspire you to a more solid faith in Him. One that can withstand and endure until our Lord Jesus returns.
