Jesus said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." Matthew 9:37
I have been thinking about this verse since I read it yesterday. I have recently stepped away from a volunteer position at the church and it has been hard. Especially because I know that there is a need in this area. However, I have felt led toward a different path. So, after reading this post I have been thinking about being a worker in the field.
All kinds of thoughts have been running through my head, Did I make the right decision? Is someone else going to take over this ministry?
I actually feel a lot of peace about my decision. After reading this verse, this is where my thoughts have gone. . .
The harvest is plentiful, and the field is a big one. There are so many people that still need to be touched by the love of Christ. Not all of these people will be touched by a structured ministry.
I have opportunities everyday to have an impact on so many people. I am choosing in this season of my life to go out into the field and try to make a difference.
I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Matthew 10:16
Next to the above verse in my Bible I have written in, "Balance between wisdom and vulnerability".
So as I seek balance in my life as a mom, wife, and everything that comes with those roles, I pray that God will provide me with wisdom and vulnerability as I head out to the field.
