I love the time I get in my car while driving to work. Listening to Music is theraputic for me, especially to worship music as I am driving in my car. It is just me, the music and the Lord. He calms my fears. This morning as I was driving I was thinking about my upcoming missions trip, actually worried about whether or not I would meet my fundraising goal.
The song I was listening to was I Will Trust In You by Alynthia Lewis when I was reminded that “Faith is the reality of what we hope for, the proof of what we don’t see.” Just because I don’t see God moving, it doesn’t mean that He is not working. He is always at work behind the scene. All you need right now is have faith like a mustard seed. Trust Him, Believe Him for He does not lie. When He says He will do something He will. When He ask you to do something, you must be obedient and do it. Let doubt have no place in your heart and mind. If you begin to doubt stop and remember just who God is.
He is changing your heart. You no longer are the selfish person you once use to be. Your thinking is no longer I, but us and we. You were created to move with me. Now that the scales are falling off you are starting to see the plan for what it is. Your heart is being formed like mine. I’m breaking up the shallow ground and replacing your heart of stone. I’ve put my heart in you, so you feel as I feel, you move as I move.
Your trust in me will run deep, from you shall flow rivers of living water. I will give you the words to speak when you are speechless. I am your God in whom you trust.
Here is another song in regards to trust.
This November I will be headed to Haiti on a missions trip. I have always wanted to go on a missions trip and serve, but just never did. I believe that the Lord is saying now is the time. I had plans of going to the Dominican Republic or even Africa. Haiti was not my first choice, had it not been for the prompting from the Lord I would not be going. It was a hard pill to swallow, it lead me to pray in hopes that the prompting was a mistake or misunderstanding. Boy was I wrong. In all honesty I was scared for I had heard so many unpleasant stories about this country. But God worked things out by allowing me to speak with those that had previously been on this mission trip and had stories to share
. I am grateful for those stories because they put my mind and heart at ease. This made it clear enough for me to hear that God had already given me the answer to what I had been praying about. After that is was about speaking to those in charge, getting the application and filling it out, sending it off and attend the meetings. I meet some of those that will be traveling with me and on October 23 I will be meeting the rest of the team.
From November 14 to 26 I will be in a village in Cabaret serving the people in Haiti. In this area that I will be staying in there is a church, school and orphanage. Our team will be running the medical clinic and a pharmacy. We will also be giving out food supplies. Our time will also be spent with the children in the orphanage on the compound. God has been preparing me and I am looking forward to the life changing experience that I will get from being in a different culture and environment and the relationships I will be building while I am there.
I realize that I will not be able to pay for this trip on my own so I am asking for your help. I need your help to reach my goal of raising $1600 by October 19. Any amount that you are willing to donate would be greatly appreciated. I am also asking for your prayers for team that will be traveling with me. I have started a GoFundMe page you can check it out at Https://www.gofundme.com/2pqdfrw
