Bangladesh-Emma

I came into this trip really seeking God about what He wanted me to do after this summer. But in my own selfish mind, I wasn’t willing to give up my own dreams and wants. I prayed and prayed, “God, what do you want me to do with my life?” but deep down, I was still tightly holding on to my dreams. One night halfway through the trip, I was trying to fall asleep. I was having trouble because I kept coughing, so instead I was praying. I realized how I wasn’t really letting God make the choice of what I wanted to do up to Him. I made the choice that whatever God called me to do, I would. And I asked that He would give me an obvious sign of what He wanted me to do. The next morning, my team attended a youth conference. The American speaker got up and said he had something he wanted to say to the Bangladesh TMI team. He said that God had really laid it on his heart that one of the kids on the team was being called to full-time mission work. If I have ever heard an obvious sign, it would be that. Being called to the mission field was never what I planned or dreamed, but I am so excited to see where God will lead me after this summer. Giving everything up to Him is such an adventure, you won’t regret it.
