There is no condition of life in which we cannot abide in Jesus. We have to learn to abide in Him wherever we are placed-Oswald Chambers
I read this quote this morning and instantly felt conviction. God has placed Graham and I already in several states over the last few years and with each new move comes a new challenge. Right now we are continuing to apply for residencies (he is almost a doctor!) and learning to hear God's whisper lead us to where we should go.
I find it has been a lot easier to follow and abide in God when the surroundings are appealing, easy, comfortable, and life just seems to work out smoothly. With that said, living in New Hampshire, the challenges here have been significantly more than Maine, New York, and Massachusetts. I see how I have fallen short in my abiding of Him. More and more I am blessed to experience God's love and grace through each season of my life. I often run from my conviction...laughing it off instead of taking the time to mourn my condition. After all, mourning is often a gateway to blessing. So, this morning I am simply praying this prayer "Lord, teach me to abide in You wherever you place me; teach me to be content, whatever the circumstance."
