I have lots of people in my life who are great at planning. They know dates, expectations, schedules and how things are supposed to happen. They educate themselves, assemble the resources that will be used and do all kinds of preparation, thinking and planning. I’m really grateful for these people because these kinds of things can be kind of tricky for me. For example, I’m grateful that my husband frequently asks me when I make international with Saving Moses trips if I have cash with me for traveling because I can forget important things for concentrating on not forgetting my coffee supplies ,)
Here’s my saving grace, it’s been my experience that The Holy Spirit, Whom I call The Helper, is my Great Planner – seems to go along with how God organized & planned the world in Gen 1. This gives me great confidence that God is planning my life and Helping me along each step of the way – and for you as well!! 😀
Well, we’re concluding our 2nd trip to Angola & I’m quite a mixed bag of feelings & thoughts. In some respects, this trip has been more difficult than our 1st venture & it seems like I’ll have some sorting out to do for a fair amount of time. There are several discussions that I’m having with God, along with many questions. So in some respects, I guess that’s good because these interactions certainly keep our relationship genuine.
Alot of my conversations with God are also filled with gratitude. I’m very thankful for His patience with me as I grow, His wisdom in how He handles me, His grace for my humanity and most of all His love, which I’m unable to describe at this point.
I think I’ll be working through this trip for awhile. But be sure to watch for a video update tomorrow – I worked on one & when I get in a wi fi friendly area, I’ll upload it & it will certainly warm & encourage your heart 🙂 In the meantime, here’s a cool pic of my friend Jody who has become delightfully attached to Celestina, a beautiful & very healthy 3month old little girl 🙂
