The time has come for us to chose what is and is not important. It is not easy sorting through 35 years of accumulations, but it must be done. The POD has been delivered and items we are getting rid of are being move into it. Time is flying by and so much has yet to be done.
Through it all God continues to make it clear to us that we are on the right path. On Friday, a student from FGCU came to observe some of our math teachers. When talking with her and sharing a little of what God is doing in our lives, she told us that her mother was from Quito. So many little things have happened that keep reminding us that God has called us and will equip us for this walk of faith.
It is time also to clear out all those things in our spiritual lives that are not important. We should not be busying ourselves with activities that (though not bad) are not what our Lord wants us to spend time with. It is time to focus on strengthening our relationship with our Lord and Saviour to equip us for the battles ahead. That does not mean we stop doing anything else. We just need to make sure what we are doing is what God wants us to do, not just what others want or expect us to do. Some will understand, some will not. God's call and expectations of us must be our primary focus.
