As I look back on this past year I can’t help but be completely amazed at all the incredible ways my heavenly father has blessed me. Not only through all the big things in life but also in the countless small things. Through the beauty of a sunset, through a conversation with a friend, through simply resting in his presence. Everywhere I turn God shows me his amazing love and creativity.
This past December I had the incredible privilegeto travel to the beautiful Dominican Republic with a team of six other women. We had the opportunity to do several different ministries and share the hope and the love of Jesus Christ. I am completely amazed every time I have the privilege of traveling to a new country. It is during those times that I realize the amazing creativity of God. Seeing how different and unique he has created us with different languages, music, dance, food… the list is endless. Our God is amazing and his blessings are around every corner.
Now God is taking me on a new journey. This April I will be going back to Tijuana, Mexico and I will be living there as a full time missionary. I am so excited for this new season of life that God has called me to and cannot wait to see what he has in store. I am not going to lie and say that I have not had my doubts and fears, but what better place is there to be than in the will of God? When those fears and doubts sneak into my mind I quickly remember a very popular bible verse, that also happens to be one of my favorites…
“for I know the plans I have for you declares the lord. (Lord)
Plans to prosper you, and not to harm you.
Plans to give you a hope and a future.”
God is so awesome, and he has an incredible plan for each one of our lives. I cannot even begin to tell you how exciting life with Christ is. Maybe sometimes it’s a little scary, maybe we don’t know what’s down the road. But let me tell you with God in the lead it just might be something so amazing, something we have never experienced before. Each new day comes with new adventures, new excitements and new blessings. So get excited! Because when your journeying with God, everyday is a new beginning!
