I am feeling very overwhelmed since arriving home and I am really asking God to show me WHAT HE IS WANTING FROM ME?? I feel like another curtain has been pulled back and I can SEE things that are breaking God's heart and mine. There is so much ministry that needs to be done in Ethiopia. My heart is very heavy because I personally know of special needs for the Kolfe boys and Solomon, Misganaw and his family. I know I CANNOT DO THESE THINGS by myself. I am praying for wisdom and discernment. I cannot just get back to life as I knew it before this last trip. I know God is preparing me for something and I am at the threshold of the next chapter of this book HE IS WRITING.

I have to start school with the kids and today is our first day to co-op. I woke up feeling like I need to sit at the throne of God and ask for HIS portion to fill me today. I am on the verge of tears so I sat this morning and asked him to SPEAK TO ME! This is what HE showed me within minutes of sitting at HIS FEET! My GOD IS SOOOO GOOD TO ME!!!

"You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, And called from its farthest regions, And said to you, YOU are my SERVANT, I have chosen you and have not cast you away: "Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you , Yes I will help you, I will uphold you with MY righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:9-10

"Now it shall come to pass," if you diligently obey the VOICE of the LORD YOUR GOD to observe carefully all HIS commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your GOD will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the VOICE of the LORD YOUR GOD" Deuteronomy 28:1-2

Are you SEEKING TO HEAR THE VOICE OF THE LORD SPEAK TO YOU??? I want to encourage you to SEEK HIM AND SEARCH FOR HIM WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART. HE is faithful and desires his saints to be about HIS business.


I am now ready to start my day and WAIT for HIS instructions.

I have been feeling similar lately and I know we especially felt this urgency upon returning from M*rocco and visitting an unreached people group. I will pray for clarity of what the Lord would have you do and pray that many of us might partner with you for the sake of the gospel and that all might see the compassion and glory of our Lord Jesus Christ - through ordinary redeemed sinners like us.
