It Is Me…

I’ve noticed that it is usually in my time of weakness that I tend to focus more on God. It is not that I have forgotten the Lord in my time of plenty it’s just that when I am weak you seem so much more closer. So I ask “Why is this so, Lord?”

As I ask, I hear His response. It only appears this way because in your time of weakness you are looking out for me more. You depend on me more, you seek for me more and you listen for me more. You see my child this is how it’s suppose to be all the time, not just in your time of weakness. Don’t let the cares of this world bog you down. Turn your cup up towards me so that it can be filled.

My Child it is me… that you need in both times of strength and weakness both plenty and need. I hold you and walk beside you. When it gets too hard I am the one who picks you up and carries you. So I am with you when you are on the mountain top and even when you find yourself in the valley.

  • It is me… that brings healing to your dry bones and causes them to come to life again.
  • It is me… that brings you a drink in the wilderness to quench your thirsty soul.
  • It is me… who sheds light into every dark area in your life.
  • It is me… who sees every tear drop, gives you a shoulder and wipes each tear dry.
  • It is me… who hears you in the still of the night.
  • It is me… who senses your darkest fear.
  • It is me… who is with you until the end.
  • It is me… who has shaped and formed you and made you so wonderfully complex.
  • It is me… I know how many hairs you have on your head.
  • It is me…  I know every beat of your heart.
  • It is me… who accepts you and loves you without condition.
  • It is me… I ask you to come just as you are.
  • It is me… wont you just go ahead and take my hand.

It is me with you through it all.

It’s me! Won’t you take me at my Word and see.

It has always been Me, your loving Father, Come and Drink from my well that never runs dry.

Mission Trip to Haiti

wp-1474512631864.jpeg
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 and please share this with others.
