Update Two-Call Him Good!

“Call Him good, my soul, and praise the Eternal…You are indeed great…”

That right there has proved so true in this journey. Even outside of the journey to Guatemala, He is still good.

One thing (out of many) that God has been teaching me is just HOW good, and faithful and so, so gentle He is with me. With us. And it blows. my. mind.

How much He’s pursuing me in this relationship. It’s not just me wanting more of Him. He wants more of me.

The Holy, Majestic God, who breathed the galaxies into existence. He doesn’t need this relationship. It doesn’t make Him complete. No. He’s already complete. But He wants to know me.

Crazy right?!

A lot of times, we get our eyes off of who He says He is. We get our eyes off of how great He is, and worry and whine to Him about everything we see that isn’t being done right this second.

That’s how I was Thursday night. Just overwhelmed at how much I still need and do before this 4 months is up and I climb on the plane.

And I was fearful. I let it take hold.

Friday morning, during my morning Jesus time, here’s what kept coming up.

“He. Is. Faithful.”

“Walk with me along paths of trust. The most direct route between point A and point B on your life journey is the path of unwavering trust in me.

Trust in me with all of your heart, and I will make your paths straight.”

I saw that last part as. “Trust me, and things will clear up. you’ll see how it all works out! I promise.”

The question is. Do I trust Him? Do I trust that Jesus, who is the one who started this journey will finish it?

Yes.

Later on Friday, I got two cards with support, and encouragement in them by two dear people. They had no idea how much I was discouraged the night before. But God did, and it was like a refreshing reminder of just how much God’s got my back on this!

Update One

It just hit me the other day that I am leaving in 4 months.

But I’ll start from the beginning!

I’ve always wanted to do mission work, something God placed in me since  I was little. It just felt ‘right’.

Well, 2 years ago, I went down to Guatemala on my first trip,  to Casa Bernabe, (FOCE.org), for 1 month.

And now that I’m out of school,and not planning on going to college at the moment, I wanted to be open to what He had for me.

Then it opened up for me to go back to Guatemala, only this time for 5 months. I’ll be leaving January 1st-June 1st 2017.

I’ll be back at the same orphanage, and planning on helping in the baby home. And while I’m down there, here on this blog is where I’ll be giving updates : )

And I want to ask you to be a part of my journey, to be apart of what God is doing in these people’s lives and how He is working here on earth!

I wrote more about it on my fundraiser page HERE.  (it will eventually be on the side bar of my blog here.)

But above giving, I’m asking you to please pray for this trip and for me. Prayer can make such a huge difference, and it would be such a blessing to me. Pray:

•That I would keep an open heart to learn and be taught
•That God would be at work at Casa Bernabe and in these kids’ AND volunteers’ lives
•For my spiritual and physical strength.
•For safety
•But mostly…that God would be glorified through everything that happens!
