What does God have for me next?

We spend a lot of time trying to discern God's will.  I think a great question (originally told to me by Bill Allison of Cadre Ministries) is: "What does God have for me next?

I think that type of question is what Jesus kept on his mind each day.   In Mark 1, Jesus is at the height of popularity at a certain town in Galilee, so much so that the disciples told him "Everyone is looking for you."  How did Jesus respond?

But Jesus replied, “We must go on to other towns as well, and I will preach to them, too. That is why I came.” (Mark 1:38 NLT)

He wasn't as concerned as to what God had been doing yesterday, as much as he was asking... what does God have for me next?  Jesus knew God had a different plan than the conventional one.

For me?  Two things God has for me next:
1) To be a dad (again) for the next 18 years.  Coryn Elijah was born to us on Friday morning.  He's healthy and already becoming a part of the family.
2) To continue serving at COCUSA but in the role of Executive Director.  I can't wait to see where God takes Camp next.
