God is always Good!

Hello there,
I have not heard anything new about my trip to Indonesia yet, but I know this is God way to prepare my heart for His work. Since my last post, God has been proving that He is good, He is good all the time! Not just sometimes. He answers prayers, yes it might not be the way we want them to be answered, but God knows whats best for us right? That's what i keep telling myself! =) I don't know how many of you know me well, but i am a very impatient person. I just really want to be in Indonesia right now, in the orphanage..serving. But God keeps telling me "wait on Me Natalia, and keep My way.."-Ps37:34. While i wait for a next open door, i need to continuously recognize that God is good all the time, and i need to keep  in His way, i keep hearing the Lord say "Follow me Natalia." Also the people all around me that are excited for me to go, have been so encouraging! Thank you guys!
As I was thinking about serving in an orphanage, and as i was talking to my mom, I realized something. I just want to tell you guys that the orphanage i will be going to is so wonderful, it is owned by a pastor and his family. They provide so much care for the children and the unwed mothers, i will just be an addition to that blessing. Just because i grew up in an orphanage that was still caring, but not so much loving, doesn't mean every orphanage is like that. My goal is to provide as much care, as much love as i possibly can through Jesus!  
So as i continue waiting, i will try my best to keep in His way and His way only! =)
"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward"- Ps127:3

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
(Proverbs 22:6)

I'm not proverbs thirty one

Have you ever read Proverbs 31? 

It describes a woman who is intimidating to me, yet I aspire to be. If you ever have time, read the chapter, if not, I'll break it down for you. In this chapter King Lemuel meaning "devoted to God" wrote a passage that was almost a perfect description of his mother, some say he was inspired by her wisdom. His mother, Bathsheba made her wisdom very evident when she was basically telling her son "not to fall into the trap of immorality, chasing after women will sap a king's strength. (Proverbs 31:3) I can only draw my own assumptions that Lemuel was inspired by that saying and wrote up a whole chapter based on what a woman of virtue should look like. I won't quote the chapter in this blog, although I must have read it three or four times tonight, and had it basically memorized at some point in high school, however I'll attempt to simplify with my such minuscule concoction of words.  

So, what is a Proverbs 31 woman?

It's real

Depression- the word is either used too much or not enough. 

Upon hearing that someone may be depressed, some just look the other way as if it's not real, as if it's a trend or not as bad as the guy next door. Some may treat it with medication, therapy, and may even suggest medidation. 

I heard a statistic from 2013, that 437 children die from cancer, that is one too many, and 4,600 individuals ages 10-24 will take their own lives. I am one hundred percent positive the numbers have increased since, sadly. So. Are we judging too quickly when some one may be depressed? Are we shrugging it off as if it's not a thing. Let me tell you something...

Unless you have mentally experienced the battles a depressed person fights- you have no say. Unless you have felt your own heart beat fasten it's pace because your lungs are trying to grasp for air due to heavy tear flow that became silent- you can not point fingers. Unless you felt the utter darkness that surrounds the mind and the …

what is seen is temporary

the phrase I have tattooed on my forearm states "this too shall pass..." 

lately I'm realizing that the phrase holds multiple meanings. this. what is "this" is it eluding to? here's my faulty conclusion...

this. any state of emotion, life situations, adversities, joys, sadness, pains, tragedies...this will pass. so that leads to this- whatever joys we experience, they will soon pass, what ever pains we experience, they will also pass, the most painful "this too shall pass" includes the connections we make, the relationships we spend our time building, the people...they pass. They pass right out of our lives. You can look at someone and physically see them, all the while realizing the person they were before has "passed", the essence of their being was taken along with their "passing." 

"this too shall pass." 


As contradicting as it is, the permanent tattoo on my forearm indicates how temporary things are in this life. 

Upo…
