Overwhelmed… (from 3/27/11)

I keep telling myself the verse in Ephesians, to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we can hope or imagine.  I keep telling myself this to reassure myself that it is He and not me when I get overwhelmed, and when I doubt whether I can truly do this, I say this because it is Him who is at work.  This whole dream is FROM Him and I know the only way it will happen is THROUGH Him.  I need to remember not to try to control the outcomes, the control freak that I am.  It is only going to work as He desires and I wouldn’t want it any other way!!

Today I am thankful that I am overwhelmed, not by how big this crazy thing is, but how big MY God is and how great His love is.  He is already bringing wisdom, love, encouragement and boldness to me that I am SOOOO thankful for.  Why are we always amazed when God shows up??  Did I think He was going to make me do this alone??  That isn’t His style.  He lives in community and desires for us to as well.  I love the community that I find myself in.  I am so thankful for you all!!  Thank you for loving me, supporting me and above all else bringing me regularly before the throne of the King in prayer.  God is using you to be His hands and feet to me as I try to be that to the youth of Uganda.  Dad, Roland and Doug you are a God send!!  Please continue to speak wisdom into my dream, my life!
