Today was good. I had a really good time in my devotions today and my mind opened up even further to full time missions work today. There was a big emphasis in all my classes today for Aviation Missions. It seemed like everywhere I went I was confronted by thoughts of a full time ministry related to Aviation and/or Computer IT. It was actually very awesome how God works though. While I was hearing all these things about missions it wasn't just information. The things I heard actually made me excited and I couldn't wait to go! It was just a sobering thought realizing the many many people out in the world who need Christ! Then even better still, seeing a little insight into how I could be a part of the Great Harvest through multiple avenues I currently have skills in. I was a little discouraged at one point though because of the many skills I would still need to have before I could fully engage in some areas of Service I would enjoy. But then I read Mark 9:23 during devos this morning and all the doubts and obstacles I saw before just faded away, and I am set to just press on towards the goal. Aviation Missions is not just some career you go into, but it is a fully entrenching lifestyle. I would have the opportunities to live among some amazing people as well as have a tremendous opportunity to serve God and others. I don’t know how I never saw it before but I can’t think of any other lifestyle that would match my personality any better. I would be able to relate to people which I absolutely love, as well as work in service which I also enjoy extensively. Not only that, just the thought of knowing I would wake up everyday and everything I do would be for an eternal cause. How’s that for a retirement plan! So anyway, I’m excited to say that instead of having an “If I go” mindset I’ve crossed over to now having a “When can I go!” mindset. My mind is racing with thoughts, and plans and ideas… but very little doubt, thanks to the faith I have in Christ because of his promises to us.

Mark 9:23 - And Jesus said to him, “If You can? All things are possible to him who believes."

Hebrews 11:1 - Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see.

Hebrews 11:9a - By faith he lived as a foreigner in the promised land...
