Time is Drawing Nigh

The time for my departure is getting closer.  I am shooting for around March 16th or 17th.  So far, getting the van set up and ready has not only been fun but it has also been a rather intense spiritual journey.  I have encountered quite a few problems I did not have any idea how to deal with.  Fortunately for all of us, God knows how to handle any problem and brothers and sisters I am telling you solve them He did.  He has been with me every step of the way and it becomes even more obvious to me every day that I am doing what he wants me to do.  While I am going to terribly miss my family, both at home and at church, I am getting a little more excited every day.  I can't wait to find out what God has in mind for me and even where He is going to send me.  I must admit to feeling a bit of apprehension but He is taking care of that as well. 
    Here is an absolute God moment for you that should prove that point.  In trying to personally control my apprehensions, I was what you might call just treading water.  I decided to see what God had to say to me.  I took my Bible, set it on the table with the spline down and let it fall open.  It fell open to 2nd Timothy Chapter 4. 
I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with [a]great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

     I must have sat and read that passage at least 50 times.  I'm not sure what you might think but I'm pretty  certain I got my answer.  I feel so privileged and loved when God reaches out to me like that.  So much for apprehension.   I don't know what tomorrow holds but I do know who holds tomorrow.
     I must say that quite a few people have come to my aid as I am sure they were following God's bidding.  I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart and I just can't wait to relay to you the stories of my travels and the wonderful works of God I know lie ahead.  Please keep me in your prayers as I will pray for each of you daily.
In the love of our Heavenly Father
