Don't get me wrong–I'm still praying for God to open new doors, even as I do what he's called me to today. But meanwhile I have this confidence: As long as I'm obedient to God, I'm pleasing him regardless of what I'm doing, how important it seems, or even the fruit it bears. And that's no small calling at all.
