My wife is finalizing her paper from her trip to the Solomon Islands, and she has made some phone calls, we will be going through the process to become ‘official’ Missionary Associates to Moldova. Well, technically, she will be the official missionary and I, her dear husband, will be the spouse.
While I have my good days, and my bad, I am for all intents and purposes a disabled veteran. The list of medical conditions is pretty long, but I believe that just like some of the examples we have in the Bible, God has used my physical suffering to not only build my testimony, but to provide me (us) freedom to answer His calling for our lives in a way that I could have never anticipated, expected, or planned for.
We have a lot of role reversals in our household, to some it would seem abnormal, but what is NORMAL, anyways? While she will be working on developing a curriculum for educating the youth of Moldova about human trafficking; I will be making sure she is well fed, has clean clothes, and basically ‘getting her back’. I’m good at that.
I have another week of cardiac rehab and have been cleared for travel, I have another month or two before my sternum fully heals from having had open heart surgery back in November. I continue to exercise and prepare myself physically, mentally, and spiritually for the road ahead while God continues to heal my body.
It’s funny how seeking the Word helps explain some things. I was looking up one specific verse and was shown instead 1 Peter 5:6-11 (ISR)
6 Humble yourselves, then, under the mighty hand of Elohim, so that He exalts you in due time, 7 casting all your worry upon Him, for He is concerned about you. 8 Be sober, watch, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 Resist him, firm in the belief, knowing that the same hardships are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 10 And the Elohim of all favour, who called you to His everlasting esteem by Messiah Yeshua, after you have suffered a while, Himself perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 11 To Him be the esteem and the might forever and ever. Amen.
