Soon Steve and I head out the door to begin the 18 hour trip that brings us to Riga, Latvia and a visit to Matthews Church, Suburban’s Sister Church there. We covet your prayers for safe travels and the ability to be present to God and others even on the journey.
There is a unique feature in the room we slept in last night. High above our bed, on a side wall, sits an electric outlet. So curious. I know the purpose of a wall outlet. It brings electricity to a place and from there so much can happen depending on what is plugged in. But this particular outlet must be intentionally designed for a unique use – either that or someone ran out of electric wire and didn’t want to waste the short piece left. 😉
I kind’a feel like that outlet. I know my purpose and Steve’s purpose. I love the way the Westminster Catechism states it: ‘Man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.’ I even know that as we embark on this trip we go to join our brothers and sisters at Matthews Church in glorifying God for the marvel He has done over the course of 150 years of Matthews Church’s existence. But when such a uniquely positioned opportunity exists, I wonder what other purposes and possibilities does the Master Designer have in mind for us and for Pastor Mike and Randy when they join us next week? Please pray that we are faithful and useful servants ready for whatever He wants to plug us into!
