There are three things that my heart calls me to do. One is to write, one is to serve as a missionary, and the third is to be a mother. These are confirmed in that when I do not do them, I long to, and when I do them, I am fulfilled.
I do not know how God determines individual callings but there is great evidence that He does. It pulses in our hearts and gives passion to our motives. It is what pushes us to faith, to stepping out, to believing.
Once my feet touched foreign soil, I knew that “home” would never be the same. It is that soil that beckons me now. I have been back in the United States for two years. It is too long. By birth, I am an American, but by spirit I am an alien, a stranger, and I am called away. Called to go again, to venture forth to an unknown place, to plant my feet in a land that too, cannot be called “home”.
Some would call this sacrifice. But, because it is a calling, unique from God to me, the sacrifice is gain.
