I keep catching myself saying things that include some form of the phrase, “We are supposed to be in India right now.”
- “It’s -6 degrees today. This stinks. It’s 75 in India, and we are supposed to be there right now!”
- “Great turn out at Jim & Autumn’s church in Delhi? That’s AWESOME, but ugh…we are supposed to be there!”
- “It’s Valentine’s day, but your gift is packed. We were supposed to be in India today.”
- “What am I going to wear to church? I’m supposed to be in India right now wearing my salwar kameez.”
Just because I desire to be in India and I supposed that at this point I would be, for reasons unknown, I’m not supposed to be there right now. Not really, or else I would be. God knows where I am supposed to be right now, and that’s where I am. He knows it’s -6 degrees, and he knows I pretty much feel homeless right now (thankfully that’s not totally true in this weather!).
Though I don’t necessarily know where I will be 2 months or 2 years from now, He does. And wherever I am, He will be there too. When I follow the Lord, I can trust that I am exactly where I’m supposed to be.
