Today God provided through one of our precious ministry partners thousands of dollars toward our truck fundraiser - just another way He showed me that He is on top of the plan He has for our lives and ministry!
Whoever thinks it is boring to serve the Lord Jesus Christ never really has.
Thank you Jesus!
Today was a day of firsts.
For the first time in the history of our ministry I have had to cancel a mission trip. We will not be taking a team to Costa Rica this July.
While there are a variety of reasons, life has taught me to trust in the Lord during these times. He truly sees the big picture...He knows what will be going on in our lives in July, and it is evident that this trip is not going to be it.
Strangely, I am at total peace about postponing this trip to a future date.
So....we continue to press on seeking His face!
I recently heard Pastor Jentzen Franklin preach about the roads we build for our lives. It really spoke to me - each one of us lays a road for our future every day. It may be in the realm of how we raise our children, or it might be in the area of finances, but we take steps every day in one direction or another.
I have been intentionally laying my road for our future in Costa Rica. We have been making small repairs to our home for its sale this spring, looking at homes online in the area where we would like to move, etc.
In addition, I have booked a ticket for my next trip down to CR. During this time I am going to be getting everything lined up for our team trip in July, as well as laying the groundwork for my family's future.
Whatever road you desire to take, make plans intentionally today to ensure that you are going to get to your desired destination!
