God speed! My daughter, Janelle,worked in Chaing Mai with victims of human traffiking with HNGR while a student at Wheaton. Although she is with IJM at another location in Asia our hearts are still tender for Thailand. Thank you for your daily blogs! I’m personally blessed to know that God truly is “the master recyler.”
Cambodian refugee camp.
months, I wrestled to show love in a tangible way to the survivors of that
horror through pig and chicken projects.
Amen! He did the same with me and Thailand after 30 some odd years! Amazing grace and redemption. He uses it all! have a great trip.
In my circles, we’re seeing a slight variation on what you describe as recycling. But rather, God seems to be calling people “out of the cave.” “Come out of your cave, David” was the call to David who had been anointed for kingship so many years before. He had slain a giant, protected flocks, and been blessed by Samuel. Yet there he sat in a cave, hiding from Saul.
Now is a time to hear God if he is calling us out of our caves — resurrecting dreams and destinies, and yes, definitely, “recycling”!
Good word, Seth!
I know about Gods repurpose program, because I’ve seen it and experienced it for myself. Growing up I went through so much stuff that for a very long time I tried to deny everything because it hurt to much to think about it. Then God began to place adults,children and teens in my path who had gone through the exact same things I had; It caused me to delve into the word and seek out who I truly was in Christ Jesus. The one thing I have said over and over to anyone who seeks me out wether its in an identity crisis or daily abuse physically or mentally is this: If satan can get you to lose sight of who you are and get you so distracted from what Gods word says you are, then he wins every time.
Repurpose,Reconfiguration,Destination ….. God shows purpose then He takes the time to show how to rebuild yourself and what your identity is in HIM and then he deploys you to work in areas you never imagined yourself working.
Seth I absolutely thank GOD that he has shown you how to minister in those 3 areas, Repurpose,Reconfiguration and Destination, because of you a new generation is going to be recycled by the Masters hand.
