So long self
Last minute calls , last minute errands, double checks and triple checks, scan the list, make a new list, throw the list away, start over, pack the bags, repack the bags, find the thing you forgot to pack, repack again, oh wait I still need that out. Unpack, partially repack. STOP!!
Breath in, breath out, breath in, breath out.
Yes their are last minute things to do. Things I have not thought of until this very minute. While these things seem so important and bear the wait of importance.
There is only one thing we need to do.
Be quiet and know that He is God.
The supply drive has finished and the packing party went as planned (for the most part)
The Smurfs appeared and brought much laughter to the party. We all had a lot of fun and the event brought us that much closer together as a team.
Spencer and Wendy Finney once again were gracious enough to open their home to us and the supplies.
All is in God's hands now.
All of the little things seem to be covered.
for that matter all of the big things seem to be covered.
It is all of the unseen, unknown, unexpected things that we need to pray about.
It is human nature to stress over these things
It is a battle of unbelief between our own flesh and the Spirit with in us
Will we quench the Spirit and do it on our own.
Or will we continue on with endurance and faith in our Lord to provide.
Please pray for our team.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to prepare our hearts
May He light a fire with in us
May our hands be blessed with the gentleness of His love.
May our feet not lead us into temptations of self and flesh
May our eyes be blessed with sights of Him among us.
May our tongues let loose only that which is good by His name.
May we leave our selves at home and go forth in Him alone.
Our Father in Heaven,
hollowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our debts,
as we forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom,
and the glory,
