Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the LORD, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.
Eternity in Our Hearts
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men . . .
Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV
You know, missionaries have always been seen as birds of another feather. And maybe in some ways it’s true. But when it comes right down to it, we all have wants, dreams, and desires. As God began tugging at my heart to serve Him in Colombia, South America, the question arose, “Will I obey?”
For a missionary, the hardest adjustments aren’t so much changes in food, language, or culture. The most painful thing is leaving family behind.
One day before my departure, my father said to me, “Hallie, the Indians in Arizona need Jesus too; why do you have to go so far away?” I answered him, “Daddy, if I wasn’t absolutely sure of eternity, I could never leave. But I know this life is but a breath, and what is eternal lasts forever. We have all eternity to be together.”
May we always keep that hope, and may our treasures always be in Him.
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
