>All week I have been watching my furniture leave my house forever. I have seen my entire life pass before my eyes and become a part of someone elses house. It is the strangest feeling. I feel such sadness and yet I feel excitement and expectation all at once. I see my life being packed into the back of someone’s truck and taken away and I think, “Oh God, did I really hear You when You said go? Did I really hear You when You asked of me to sell all that I have and give myself to the poor?” And I have to say out loud, I know that my God is faithful and I know that my God is good and He will never take what I have given to Him in faith and not bless it.
I have sent my application to Iris Ministries and I have nothing in the natural yet to say that I have been accepted and yet I cannot stop myself from doing what He has asked me to do. My house has sold and I close on February 23rd and I become homeless and furnitureless and I have a 5 x 10 foot storage unit which will contain my entire life. And I keep my gaze fixed upon the Lord and His promise to me. And I do not fear what “might” not be because I know, through faith, that He does not call me and then not make the way. And so I wait with expectation to hear from Iris Ministries and I trust the Lord that He will make the way because He has put this desire in my heart to minister to His people in Africa.
I am in a place of total dependance upon the Lord and I am finding that it is the best place to be. It is completely out of my hands and I can do nothing but trust Him. How wonderful is that? There is no use worrying, “Did I do the right thing?” All I can do is say, “God, my times are in your hands”. Psalm 31:15
To the Cornerstone Christian School third grade classes, I want to thank you for putting your faith in God for what He is going to do in Africa. I want to tell you how special you are for caring about what He cares about. I want you to know that the Lord is delighted with you just because He is. It isn’t about what you do but about who you are. You are His and He delights in you.
