Sunday Night Missions Class
I spoke about the journey as I know it...from when I found out about Honduras until now. It was incredible to be able to walk them through the emotion. I shared a few scriptures that God dropped in my heart that very night:
Listen to my prayer, oh God. Do not ignore my cry for help! Please listen and answer me for I am overwhelmed by my troubles.
I wait quietly before God for my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken.
They are only 7 chapters apart in the Bible but they are polar opposites in emotion. There have been parts of this journey that left me feeling anxious, worthless and totally helpless. But I had to walk through those times to experience for myself the goodness and faithfulness of God. Now I know Him personally as rescuer, as comforter, as friend and protector.
Even though sometimes I felt like the book of Lamentations was my journal, I would do it all again if it brought me closer to Him. This is all about a deeper relationship with God.
I am glad to say that the season of uncertainty has passed for now. I am on my way to Honduras in only 29 days! I am certain that there will be many challenges ahead, but I am also certain that God can handle them all! I have made the transition from Psalm 55 to Psalm 62, and I understand a little bit more now about my Father.
