There are preachers with congregations and preachers with churches. There are preachers in parishes and preachers in prayer groups.
But there is a unique kind of preacher.
The dictionary defines “itinerant” as “traveling from place to place”. That, my friend, is what I do.
While I do have a home-base, my community Ligaya ng Panginoon and its affiliated groups like Lingkod ng Panginoon and Pathways Ministry, I am, for the most part, always traveling to different places to speak the Word of God before different kinds of people, groups, organizations, churches, parishes and companies.
I eat breakfast at home, lunch at an airport and dinner in another city. Hotel rooms and generous hosts are my blessings. I learn new dialects in many of my trips. I create new friends in every corner of the country and even some abroad.
Tiring? Yes. Draining? You bet.
But unquestionably “fulfilling” every step of the way. Why? Because that’s what I am called to do.
You see, they say that when you do what you are called to do, the fatigue is often overshadowed by fulfillment.
Is this true with you?
Are you in a work that you believe God has called you to be in? Are you doing what you believe God made you to do? Are you in a job that God told you to take?
Fulfillment is what we all strive for. And the first step towards it is to be where God wants you to be and to do what God has called you to do.
Yes, even if it sometimes mean being “itinerant”. For I would rather travel constantly with God than stay put without Him.
Have a blessed week ahead, my friend!
