“Consider now, for the LORD has chosen you to build a house as the sanctuary. Be strong and do the work.” (28:10)
On this scouting trip, I’ve learned a lot about myself and my weaknesses and struggles with trust and control.
I have the most legit supporter base and crowd of encouraging prayer warriors. God has been moving mountains every day, yet somehow I am still in desperate need of a massage for all these knots in my back from stress (and changing mattresses so often). How was I just in Paris for a week and stressed out? Wasn’t there supposed to be magic vacation love dust in the air or something?!
In one of my more dramatic moments, I was texting my woes to a friend and they said, “you are a strong person, BE STRONG!”
Sometimes it’s waiting for strength from the Lord, and sometimes it’s buckling down and doing work, because God has already shown Himself.
I want to glean everything I can from this season, I want to keep moving forward, I want to see the magic love dust, I want to take some of this weight off my shoulders, I want to trust and be strong.
Europe is a dark place. So many people are sad and lonely. If I am to bring light and the life of Jesus into these situations I need to be wrapped up in Him. I repent, Lord! I need You! I get in my own way and I don’t want anything between us.
“Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is Yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; You are exalted as head over all.” (29:11)
