:: Update Twelve ::

“I’m still in your hands, this is my confidence and you’ve never failed me yet. Great is your faithfulness!”

He keeps reminding me that He is faithful. That He hasn’t abandoned me yet, and He won’t start now either.

A verse I read in Psalm 145 recently (and I’ll put in in English too, but I love the Spanish. I feel as tho it’s more rich!)

“El senor es bueno con todos; desborda compasion sobre toda su creacion.”

“The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.”

He is so so good, and I feel like i won’t ever be able to grasp just how good He is with us.

Surrender. A word that sums up my life recently. Things come up in life that you have to surrender them to God. I’m leaving my home in 18 days. And I really feel like this is where God has called me to be for much longer than 51/2 months. But I have to surrender my desire to come back to Him. I have to surrender it to Him or I’ll end up trying to do it in my own time, in my own way. And God’s way is always better.

Surrender is such a scary thing. So many unknowns. But something that came up the other day about surrender, is so so true…

“You can have it all, Lord
Every part of my world
Take this life and breathe on
This heart that is now Yours

Oh the joy I’ve found
Surrendering my crowns
At the feet of the King
Who surrendered everything

Oh the peace that comes
When I’m broken and undone
By Your unfailing grace.”

 “Oh the joy I found, surrendering my crowns, at the feet of the King, who surrendered everything!”

And so as I prepare to go back home for a bit, my one prayer is that it would be my joy to surrender my ‘crowns’ at the feet of the one who gave everything. To the One who knows my future. To the One who tells me worrying doesn’t do any good, so don’t worry about my future. To the One who has taken me through these 51/2 months and I fully believe He will take me through this next season of preparing to come back for a longer term!!
