Eugene Peterson’s Final Prayer

“Eugene Peterson has died and is now with the Triune God he has loved his entire life. Family says Message author joyfully looked toward heaven as he neared death, saying, ‘Let’s go.'”*

An Answer to Prayer

I substitute teach part time. Early last week, a job in a bilingual class was posted. I speak only English so I did not take the job right away, but asked Lord to keep it open if that’s where he wanted to use me.

He kept it for me, and I had a wonderful day working with students from all over the world.

I will continue to pray and choose jobs believing we were created “to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).
