Not Entitled, Gifted

I (Kevin) have been learning lately that we are not entitled to be missionaries, but that this call is a gift.  Sure it is in line with what we want, and God has blessed us by giving us an opportunity to serve him in this capacity.  Sure we've worked hard to get here, and have more work to go before we actually make it to the field, but all that work happens because we were gifted the opportunities to work.

Sometimes I'm impatient, and want to be in Spain NOW, but remembering that I'm not entitled to being in Spain, but that it is a gift allows me to step back, release the anxiety and impatience and continue working all the more in great confidence.
