God Moment:The Responsible One

A woman who had been a missionary for many years, came home when her husband died and studied to be a counselor. She had set up an office near to where we met at a missions conference. She asked about my background. I explained about being called home to care for my parents, and how I'd had to work that through with the Lord first. Suddenly she said, "You're the Responsible One, aren't you?"

How quickly she had me pegged!

I realized, as I mulled this over later, that I had worked through this issue with the Lord during my caregiving years with my parents. It is not a problem any more, but it definitely is a part of who I am and all I do. Ephesians 1:4-5 says God planned the events of our lives before He made the world. In my case, He wanted a woman who would take responsibilities seriously.

With one observation, those painful years are redeemed and sanctified!
