Are you serving on your mission field? Part 1

Hey Everyone!
     Hope you are doing fabulous, want to share a little hope with you today :)
I have been reminded that just because we are not in a foreign country does not mean that we are not on a mission field.  Now some people are called to the mission field in another country and that is fantastic! But let me remind all of us that just because we are not in that foreign country does not mean that we cannot be missionaries here where the Lord has placed us at this moment.  If you are in the center of God's will, you are where God wants you to be.  If He has placed you in a small town or a large town or called you to a place far far away from where you would consider "home", you are still called to be His missionary.   You see we are ALL called to be His missionaries, if we have accepted Him into our life.  He wants us to go and tell people about Him.  This can be so so hard, especially if you are in a place where the Word of God and His story are not mentioned much.  It is hard, let me tell you it is, I am still working on the courage to just start that conversation with people.  However, God calls us to be missionaries everywhere we go! When you leave your house in the morning, you are entering the mission field.   And for some, you may even have people that live in your home that do not know Christ so home would be your mission field as well.  You see God places us in places where He wants us, calls us places where He knows He will help us get, and sends us places He knew we would not want to go on our own.  Have you been called to do something greater than what you are doing right now?  Sometimes I feel as though I just know God has something bigger out there and something that I just can't really imagine yet what He exactly wants me to do.  Do you feel that way?  I am nothing special because I have that feeling.  It is not anything that you can't have! You can have that feeling and ask God to show you what He wants and He will! You see God is calling, but we have to be open to hear the call.  If you want to be used in a greater way than you are right now, then let me tell you, God will use you! You must want it, ask for it, wait for it.  He has got it!  You have been called to more!  

Romans 10:14 - "How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?"

Acts 1:8 - "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
