Without my right hand

14 Jun

For the next 10 days, my right hand has left the country.  He will be halfway around the world serving on a mission project with 11 others from the Ebenezer Youth Ministry.  That’s right, Drew is on his way to Kenya.

I remember MONTHS ago when Justin challenged our youth to pray and ask God if He was calling any of them to go.  Drew got his answer pretty quickly.  After a couple of weeks, I asked Drew “Have you been praying about it?”  He assured me that God had given him a clear YES and he was just waiting on every one else to catch up.  Then, a lump in my throat:  I wondered if Drew was taking it seriously…  Little did I know that my son was intently listening to God and just waiting on His next move.  As a general rule, we adults DON’T DO THAT often enough.  We want God to lead and bless, but the truth is we want to keep moving.  We have a problem with being still and knowing He is God.  Makes me proud that my son was doing exactly what he should’ve been doing:  waiting on God.

And now, the wait is over.  And he is on his way!  And I’ll be without my right hand for a few days.  But that’s okay … He might be my right hand, but his heart belongs to His Savior.  I wouldn’t have it any other way!!
