“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

This past week has been crazy as far as my thoughts and emotions. I keep thinking how crazy I am for doing this. But I am consistently brought back to the place of complete surrender. This life I live is not mine alone. If my life is to bring glory to God then I need to take the time and get to know Him, know His thoughts, His ways, His heart, and how he wants to use me. That is the purpose of me going to Panama. That is my sole responsibility as a Christian, to follow Him wherever He leads. Today I was looking through some verses and Isaiah 6:8 kept popping into my mind.. The Lord asks, "Whom shall I send and who will go for us?" And the reply was, "Here am I. Send me!" That is what I want my life to be like.. where he needs me, I'll go willingly and with joy. The Lord also says in Romans 10:14-15- How, then can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they ahve not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" The Lord has called me to live a life set apart, and for me to be willing to go where He sends me. The next time those thoughts of me being crazy for going, or thinking I won't be able to last 5 months without my family, I'm taking those thoughts captive, and making them obedient to Christ. I hope and pray that as I go on this journey that my life will change, and that other people's lives will change, and that Owensboro will change. People get ready, Jesus is coming. :)
