Be GLAD

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Ps 118:24

In all things give thanks unto the Lord. 1 Thes 5:18

Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. Phil. 4:4

Give thanks to Him and praise His name. Ps. 100:4

 

The last month I have struggled in many areas but discovered that it all comes back to surrendering to God and being happy with it.

 

I did not want to leave Africa and the people. I fell in love and could have stayed a few more months. However God led me home. I thought for sure that I would be able to come home, see everybody, raise support and then head back to Africa.

 

When I went to Africa a year and a half ago, I went as an intern. It was a trial for me to see if this is where God wants me long term. Now that it has been confirmed it is time to prepare for a full time job. 

 

In order to better prepare myself there are some classes I need to take to be better equipped for God’s ministry.  Right now I am checking into different programs and looking for God’s will.

 

Please join me in prayer that I will be G.L.A.D. in all things!

 

G – Glory to God – Pray that I will continue to see all of this as God’s will and will continue to praise Him.

 

L – Learning – Please pray that I will find the right subjects to study and know how to study them and that I will be a good student.

 

A – Adjust – I am so close to feeling completely adjusted! Pray that I will keep on adjusting. My main challenge right now is looking for a job.

 

D – Develop –  I need to develop a good strong base of a prayer team and financial partners.
