Give Hope a Chance

Hey guys!
Lately I've been just beyond excited and overwhelmed with Gods love and His awesomeness, and Im loving it! I am seeing God at work in my life in huge ways! =)
God taught me about worship which I already wrote about and since then my life has been tough yet absolutely amazing!
I've been going through a lot, and He's been just teaching me to have Hope! Always have Hope! In everything! Whatever the situation might be, always have hope that everything will be fine in the end. Everything we witness on this earth, everything we experience in this life always happens for one reason- to teach us that everything will work out for our own good and for Gods glory! You might witness people leaving the Lord, or every thing you try to do the doors just keep on closing, you might struggle with capturing your thoughts, or straying away, but if you have hope, everything will work out.
SO! the reason for my post today is that even though it seemed like nothing was really working out for me, the doors to Indonesia were closing. BUT! an opportunity came up and guess what? I took it, I grabbed it, and I'm going with it. In May I will be joining a team from my church to go to Haiti. Awesome right? The trip couldn't be any more perfect for you all know, my heart belongs to the children, although they are not easy, but they are blessings from God. SO, our team is going to an orphanage that was started by one of my dear friends' family! I am seriously so thrilled, and so stoked! God worked this out perfectly, as He always does, for my good and for His glory! I wasn't meant to go to Indonesia in January, but He used that so I can prepare. First off, I had to grow more spiritually, then I needed to get a passport, which I did, and now I am more prepared than I was before. ALSO, I am so blessed, because my awesome friend is going too, and I can't wait to see what God does in our friendship!
All in all guys, have hope and count your blessings. Life may not go the way you want it to, but know in the end, God works everything out. =)

When you say a situation or a person is hopeless, you are slamming the door in the face of God.

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 …

and the dust on my feet

From LAX to Dubai to Entebbe- here walking around in my beloved red dirt Uganda. Nothing seemed real until that plane brought me to this country. The plane wheels hit the ground and the tears started to roll down my cheeks. 

For so long, I have been so angry at God for giving this love for the nations, and then not opening any doors. Only to realize, that I needed growth, I needed to turn to Him fully, only to understand that He needed me somewhere else at the time. As I looked out the window through my teary eyes, I heard Him say "See, I got you back here." I felt a sense of relief, I felt as if this was what I needed from Him, to finally feel Him. 

Stepping out of the plane, the instant smell of Uganda hit my senses and my heart began to race. Feeling all sorts of emotions, I took my first step onto Uganda. My heart was full with joy. 

Getting all thirty of our checked in bags was already a challenge, patience was much needed. Sweat dripping down my neck, hunger in my tummy, …
