Don't worry about the next thing

A friend and I were discussing the challenge of putting yourself and heart into where you are now whilst planning at the same time for the future. This will be true for many of us as we leave college and move into ministry. It will be easy to move straight into preparing for what may be next and thereby not fully engage in the job that lies immediately ahead. My friend quoted the great missionary Jim Elliot who said in his journal "Wherever you are be all there". That seems like good advice to me.
