morsels.

This day has overflowed with so much grace, it makes me want to weep. From conviction at Chapel this morning, to a class that I’m learning to enjoy, I just can’t take in all of this goodness! My lips are not clean enough to speak of the holiness here…the righteousness in a world of messes….

His goodness in a green land

“What would our world look like if more Christians took risks, made a ruckus, walked through ‘portals’ into the unknown for the sake of the gospel?” Hello Everyone! Our team made it safely back to the United States! Janna arrived on Tuesday, and Dan and I arrived yesterday afternoon. This trip has held so many…

Day 30: Pray that we would be open to the working of God and His will in our lives, regardless of the cost. Today we depart. (I’ll be honest and let you know that I’m typing this the night before so that tomorrow morning isn’t crazy…I probably wouldn’t make much sense blogging amid getting ready…

30 Days of Prayer | Day 27

  Day 27: Pray that God would give us clarity regarding missions in the future. One of the main reasons that we are going on this trip this summer is to understand more fully what it is like to be a full time missionary in a Western European country. Western Europe (though very much like…

30 Days of Prayer | Day 26

There are moments and days when all I can do is sit before the Lord and desperately ask that He remind me of the truth…of Himself.  Having grown up in a family full of believers, I have a lot of head knowledge. But, in short, that means nothing if it does not translate into heart…

30 Days of Prayer | Day 25

Day 25: Pray for boldness that is motivated by God’s love and light. I finished reading through the book of Isaiah yesterday, and began reading through the book of Colossians. It is a short book, but there is so much packed into it.  When we met with our team during this past semester I suggested…

30 Days of Prayer | Day 24

Day 24: Pray that our hearts would remain thankful, humble, and patient. The only way we can remain truly thankful, humble, and patient during this preparation and time overseas is to be centered on the reason why we have been brought near to the King. There is no merit in any one of us to give…

30 Days of Prayer | Day 23

(Tuesday I will be gone with my mother and sister at our homeschool co-op as a visitor and “alumni” as it is their last day for the school semester.

30 Days of Prayer | Day 22

Day 22: Pray that we would be self-controlled and alert so that we can pray. With the school semester over, I was making a list last night of how God has provided during my time at Grace so far. This is not a complete list, but it encouraged me so much to see the active hand…

Day 21: Pray that God would use us to greatly encourage the A. family Yesterday was filled with cleaning, packing, lugging boxes around, and checking people out of their rooms, so I was unable to post. However, both of these prayer requests are SO important. I thought…
