Unknown Assurance

I'm still reading through Acts. I'm also still wrestling with trusting God. With the future so cloudy, it has become difficult for a "planner" like me to trust with honest faith. These words struck me tonight from the scriptures ... I inserted my own passion in brackets:
But there is another urgency before me now. I feel compelled to to [reach lost teens and unify the church]. I'm completely in the dark about what will happen when I get there. I do know that it won't be any picnic, for the Holy Spirit has let me know repeatedly and clearly that there are hard times and imprisonment ahead. But that matters little. What matters most to me is to finish what God started: the job the Master Jesus gave me of letting everyone I meet know all about this incredibly extravagant generosity of God. (20:22-24)
Amen. That's my heart tonight, word-for-word. Sometimes it's simply incredible how God uses the scriptures to speak to us. Goodnight.
