The Final Countdown...
13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— 14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. 15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.”
Our lives are but a mist, a vapor, a poof! Puts things in perspective doesn't it? We don't know what tomorrow or the next hour holds. We also don't know where God will take Timbers, and the students we teach in the years to come. Persecution? Prosperity? Maybe both?
However, what we can hold on to is if the Lord wills, it will happen. I often go to Proverb 16:9 which states that a man makes plans, but God directs the steps. Type A personalities cringe at this, but one prayer I have oft repeated to myself is "Lord less of me and more of you." It's good to make plans, like the countless hours of people have spent planning for Timbers, but in the end it will be God who directs the future of Timbers, and this is a very good thing!
So "Lord willing" Timbers students and families in the years ahead will make a radical impact on 9-Mile, and the Kingdom of God, for if the Lord wills it will be!
