For the past 24 months I have dedicated my life to the Savior. Though I wish I could wear this name-badge for the rest of my life, I need to go home to my family.
In Isaiah, we read:
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord... my ways [are] higher than your ways... (Isaiah 55:8-9)."
If the Lord wanted me to serve a full-time mission for 80 years and not have to worry about bills or taxes or raising a family and what not, He would have made a way for it to happen. But in His higher wisdom, I will have to prioritize and balance my life according to what matters most.
In closing, I feel as the Apostle felt when writing his final epistle to Timothy:
"...the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: (2 Timothy 4:6-7)"
