ALWAYS SEARCHING

ALWAYS SEARCHING

By Katherine Russell

 

Today, I am trying to learn how to post a document in my new computer, which will become a blog.

Nothing looks familiar here, except maybe the ‘undo’ arrow, the ‘save’ icon and the ‘font’ selection. But even now, as I continue to investigate, it becomes more and more self-explanatory. (Let me see…..where is that spell check?)

After asking that question, and a little further investigation, clicking buttons and searching options, I found the spell check on a page called ‘review.’ Now I will have to try to remember that!

Even though the mountain of Windows 8 seems insurmountable, I am learning to just play around with it and I will finally get where I’m wanting to go.

And isn’t that the way life is for the most part?  We get married and all of a sudden, we have to learn: this is not all about me. Now there is another person to consider and even though I ‘love’ him/or her, he/or she has some pretty unusual every day habits that I was not aware of…. And he/or she thinks the same about me.

Where is that book of instructions? You know, the one for Dummies? So, we learn one day at a time; watching; observing; trying to accommodate until we hit just the right balance.

With God we can feel the same sense of what do I do now? Where can I find Him? How can I know His plan for me? Is my life pleasing to Him?

His Book of Instructions Before Leaving Earth, the Bible, contains every answer we require, but we must make sure that we search His Word to know Him and to know what He is looking for and expecting of His Bride.

Matthew 7:7-8 ESV

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”

Isaiah 55:6-7 ESV  

“Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that He may have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”

And remember, just like finding the ‘review page’ for this application, review God’s Word every day, for it is His love letter to us; it is a ‘lamp unto our feet and light unto our path.’

Blessings!

Katherines humble, servant heart and diligence in serving the Lord and others has made a HUGE impact and at the same time raised the bar in how the team and ministry strives to be.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
