I’m currently reading a Bill Hybels book, and as I was lying on my bed reading this evening, the Holy Spirit impressed the following message on me: “The reason why I’m calling you and Anthony to move to Zimbabwe is very simple: to serve”.
Now this had absolutely nothing to do with what I was reading in my book, it seemed to just come out of nowhere, but I felt that God was speaking to me at that moment.
Both Anthony and I know that God’s called us to move to Zim, but it’s always nice to know the reason why J So I was filled with joy and peace and encouragement after hearing it, thanking God for the privilege of hearing His voice and having Him as my father.
Then I thought, ok God wants us to serve in Zim – to serve where, to serve whom and in what capacity?
So I thought about how we are serving here in London at the moment, and the things that we are passionate about, and it gave me some ideas. God wants us to serve the church we’re going to join, the people in the church, the leaders of the church, the teenagers on Zam Hols camps, the people that we work with, the non-Christians around us, and of course our family and friends!
What a massive joy and privilege it is to be able to partner with God in serving others!
