What to do, What to do?

It's amazing how God works the little things in our life in such a way that the timing of them works out perfectly. I don't believe in coincidences, I believe in divine intervention.

A couple weeks ago I picked up a devotional that I hadn't touched for a month or so. Today's reading, though it hasn't fully answered the question I'm struggling with right now, has at least helped shine some light and insight onto the situation.

From Disciples Path: "Many Christians feel uncertain or unsettled about their place in their local church, which is understandable given that people - even well-meaning disciples of Christ - aren't perfect. Still, Jesus has promised us a place in His body. Therefore, our service in the church becomes a matter of faith more than comfort."

If you're not familiar with the body of Christ, read 1 Corinthians 12:12-20,27 for some background.

How many of us feel 100% certain that we are right where God wants us to be in our professional lives, our family lives, our spiritual lives, and in the church?  

And I love that statement in the middle that even the most well-meaning Christians aren't perfect.  I mess up every single day.  The members of the church aren't perfect, but our head, Jesus Christ, is.

We all have a place and purpose in the body.  We may not always know what it is, and honestly we may not even like it.  But we have a place where Christ wants us to be and it's up to us to listen for His voice and do what he asks us to do by faith and not just sit where we're comfortable.
