An apartment in the Netherlands. And a job.
But, no. Take some steps back, and consider what is important. What is more fundamental:
- It is important to be present.
- And at home, in Christ.
- And to be in the church. (And so to be at home, in Christ.)
- And to serve the church.
Ultimately, with love for God, and for one another.
(This is deeper and more true, than an apartment and a job. Namely a home, and a purpose.)
And yet, an apartment, and a job? OK, and somewhat, come what may.
An opera song?
I have an apartment for a month. Cool. (And, I also have a home, and a purpose…)
I need another apartment at the end of the month. OK. (And, I have a home, and a purpose…)
Whereas, I had intended to shape the apartment with beauty, I have noticed rather, the beauty of the home and the purpose.
(And the apartment may come to reflect the home, and the purpose…)
And a job?
A search with confidence, and without need. Cool.
The low lands (the Dutch translation of The Netherlands), the low lands. The low lands, are calling.
Come find me a home, come find me a purpose;
for God’s peace.
