Sent ahead

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others
         and sent them two by two ahead of him
         to every town and place where he was about to go.

                  —Luke 10.1

You do not just happen to be here,
         you have been sent.
You are intended to be here,
         to convey a presence.
The land of uncertainty and the unknown,
         these are your territory.
You are sent not away
         but ahead.
You are accompanied,
         paired with one who goes with you.
It is not your success, but your love and courage
         that fulfill your purpose.
The path will need you;
         the journey will create you.
What we receive compels us,
         and, not alone, we go.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
