…or, should i say 6, since its technically Thursday now. Hmmm…i really should go to bed before 1 in the morning. 🙂
Wow. Less than a week. Cue the hyperventilation NOW. Yeah…thats what i’ve been feeling lately. Overwhelmed. Stressed. Unprepared. Nervous. Downright scared. I need millions of details when i do something for the first time. Our missions pastor is Mr. Vague. It doesn’t do great things for my heart rate. 🙂 But i have been relieved to know that I’m not the only one feeling this. It seems as though most, if not all, of our team members are experiencing this overwhelming feeling. Craziness of life, tension in relationships, family crisis, sickness, school, work pressures, and the list goes on. No doubt the enemy is trying his best to distract and discourage us. Great things must be on the horizon for this trip. 🙂
The excitement is slowly growing. Slowly. I mean, I am thrilled to be going and wouldnt trade this opportunity for the world….its just so much to prepare for, and so little time to do so with everything else going on in life. But things are coming along, and that excitement is building. 🙂
Tonight was the first night we started our mission journals. It focused on Micah 6:8 “He has shown you, O man, what is good. To ACT JUSTLY, to LOVE MERCY, and to WALK HUMBLY with your God.” This is what i’m savoring tonight. What does this mean? How will it play out in the weeks to come?
More thoughts to come….
