How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.”
I am beginning to have a little better understanding of what James meant when the Lord directed him to write those words. Even when I feel like I am asking the Lord for wisdom and guidance in the planning, my tendency is to plan ahead and then be pretty convinced my plans are good ones. I'm learning more about resting in the Lord as many things now need to be held with more open hands.
This month, Wycliffe Bible Translators and many of our partner organizations began to restrict non-essential business travel internationally and domestically. Those whose travel is deemed to be appropriate are then being assessed as to their personal medical risk. Some meetings and conferences are being canceled or moved to online-only where possible.
We have been encouraged to use discretion regarding any personal travel. My plans for my Indy trip are being held very loosely right now. It's likely I won't make a final decision about coming until Tuesday evening.
I am so thankful for you and your faithful prayers. We are trusting in God's sovereign plan to accomplish his purposes through this challenging time.
Please let me know how I may pray with you. It's a privilege to join you.
