A Father’s Faithfulness

It’s crazy what can change in just a year. One year ago it was placed on my heart to leave the comfort of my the life I had worked so hard at building in South Carolina. It didn’t make sense to me or my family. I had accomplished so much at my age and had the life I always thought I wanted. Then Jesus came into my life and turned it completely upside down (in a good but sometimes scary way). I’d been in church and I loved the Lord with all my heart but I felt compelled to do more. So, I begin looking into missions. There are many missions to choose from, but I was drawn to Youth with a Misson, Discipleship Training School. It is a 12 week mission located in Louisville, Kentucky. We will be working hands on within the community and learning discipleship and evangelism in the classroom. Everything we do is driven by the desire to grow closer to God. The mission will end with a 10 week outreach phase to spread the gospel overseas. I am so excited to have this opportunity to not only serve the Lord but the community as well.

I am two weeks out from the start date for youth with a mission! I am excited and scared all at the same time, and looking forward to sharing the ups and downs of this adventure with you guys! Right now, I am in awe of Gods faithfulness. If you are in a place where you need encouragement, listen to Reckless love by Cory Ashbury…it’s my go to!

And oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
And I couldn’t earn it, and I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me

When he placed this on my heart to do missions. It took patience which is something I am not really good at and holding on with hope, when I didn’t think I would get to this moment. Faith in myself and God was wavering, but holding on to a promise this last year has brought me joy along with trails and sometimes faith the size of a mustard seed. God never fails and I am filled with joy he has trusted me with this adventure to go overseas spreading the gospel. My wallpaper for my phone this last year has been-“Everything you have spoken, will come to pass, let it be done.”Everything that happens will come to pass and will be used for good, I don’t want anything that isn’t Gods plan for my life. I am most looking forward to growing in a more intimate relationship with God, to be able to serve the needs to those around me and overseas! I ask for your prayers during this time to live in the moment, don’t let self doubt get in the way of seeking God and opportunities to grow deeper in faith, praying for wisdom, humility and radical bold faith. Thank you, for the supporting my blog and I am looking forward to posting more often, this is a huge change for me and I am sure there will be lots of stories!
