My God is an Awesome God...

Ok, so we all hear "God will never leave you nor forsake you," "God is good," "God is in control," "God has a plan," "God is faithful,".....and the list goes on and on.

When a friend comes to you we don't hesitate to tell them these truths, we've been taught these truths and we hear it said to us all the time. But....

Have you ever stopped to think and really marvel at what you're saying or hearing? I mean, the statements above are THE truths, found in the bible which is breathed by our GOD! I might be getting a little too excited about this, but I can't contain it.

Think about it, GOD-Holy, Righteous, Omnipresent, Supernatural, Creator, King, Just, Merciful, Faithful, Humble...again-the list just goes on and on, this GOD loves me. Are you kidding me? As if I even compare to who He is? no way!

I'm a leader at my church for the High School kids, and our youth pastor taught on the will of God. If I even try to summarize what he said it would take me forever to put in words, all I know is God completely showed me His glory and His Holiness!

These truths that I so often hear about how God is with me, He is always good, He is in control and so on, really became so real to me. Guys, as I'm writing this, Jesus is right here filling my room with His presence, filling my heart with Himself. Also, as I'm writing this He is fully, 100%, completely with my friends in Haiti, and the same in Uganda; He is equally everywhere. He identifies with each one of us, He is God to each and everyone of us. How? Because He is the Great I AM!

Why do we question? Why do we try to reason with God? Why do we try to limit Him or bring His greatness down to our human finite understanding? Why do we put God in a box and dissect Him? I'm not saying we're not supposed to dig deep into His word, study His letters to us; I'm saying DON'T QUESTION HIS GOODNESS. Who are we that He is even mindful of us? Yet, He is SO mindful of us that He has our lives planned out, our worries taken care of, our sins forgiven and He even knows how many hairs we have on our head. I mean, really God? So mindful of me that He thinks of me daily, pursues me, wants me...He doesn't need me, but He draws me to Him because He loves me. WOW.

Please friends, know that God is an awesome GOD. At times when I pray I find myself using very casual words to describe God, why? Why don't I use extravagant words such as Mighty, Just, Majestic, Supernatural...how dare am I?

My God is an Awesome God, no less!

Be blessed!
Much love!

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?

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, …

shattered pieces of my heart

"break my heart for what breaks yours.." 

A song we sing at church. Are we crazy to sing a song that literally asks God to break our hearts for what breaks His? 

I've been on a lot of trips before, visiting the poverty, seeing the starving eyes, and holding the sickest of babies. Each trip opens my eyes more and more, and breaks my heart even on a greater scale. 

Today was a hard day for me. So many times during the day I wanted to burst into tears, I felt helpless, I felt and overwhelming wave of so much heartbreak, I think I actually heard my heart shatter to pieces. 

During worship, having a baby tied to my back the Ugandan style, I stood in front of the crowd and watched these kids barefoot, dirty clothes, teared t-shirts jump up and down praising God. In my mind I think "what do you have to praise them for?" Then Janet's words resonated "If you're alive, that is a reason in itself to be praising God." I had tears rolling down my face as I clo…
