In just a few days I will be flying out to North Carolina. I am excited as well as nervous about the trip. Excited because I will be meeting with others who are hoping to work with TWR, and nervous because I will be going before a missions committee. I will be flying out on Wed of this week, and won’t be returning until Sun. Please pray for wisdom and strength for my time on this trip.
May God be glorified through my weaknesses,
I’ve been meaning to put some of my thoughts over the past few weeks into words. I was reading the book of Acts, and it dawned on me how much Peter changes in just a few weeks. At the time of Christ’s death we see him denying Christ, three times. But then in Acts we see Peter becoming the rock on whom Christ will build His church. Upon the coming of the Holy Spirit, it is Peter who is standing up and defending Christ, and the other apostles. No longer is he cowering in fear. This was really encouraging to me, because I know that there have been many times in my life where I have denied Christ. Instead of taking a stand I have shrunk back in fear. But like Peter Christ hasn’t given up on me. It’s nice to see that the majority of people that God chooses to use would be considered by the world’s standard weak people. For instance Moses, who argues with God about how he isn’t the person to go and bring the Israelites out of Egypt. There are times in life when we feel like there is no way that God can use us. But in those times of weakness God is best able to use us. He doesn’t want our strengths, but he can use our weaknesses for his glory. As Jesus said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.”
I will be leaving for North Carolina in two weeks now. I appreciate your prayers for wisdom and courage.
