When we constantly have a plan to fall back on, our trust isn’t fully invested in the plan God has for us. When we spend all of our time preparing our safety net, our attention and focus isn’t on hearing God’s voice and His purpose for us. It is when we fully submit to God’s control that we start to see Him move in crazy ways and see the limitless possibilities for ourselves unfold. When we build His house, He builds ours. He will provide and will never stop being faithful.
It’s unreal being here and seeing how God has blessed my leaders’ lives. They are so dedicated to building God’s kingdom and He has rewarded them greatly. There are several families, tons of kids and single staff on the base, completely taken care of, financially and spiritually. Their lives are a testament to God’s power over all worldly stresses. He has provided homes, cars, airfare, food, clothing, phones, and the list goes on. They have complete confidence in His constant abundance of blessings.
I have been gifted a small taste to what God can do with our lives if we let Him in. He made it clear that He wanted me to attend YWAM in Pismo Beach, California. I trusted that if it is His will, He would make a way. I didn’t have to touch my savings account. He blessed me by reaching the hearts of others and enough donations to pay my schooling fee… and then some. He is so good. I can’t wait to see how He continues to work in my life.
Every morning, I wake up, look out of my window and still cannot wrap my head around how I got so lucky. So lucky that He chose to give me life, let alone lead me here. His grace has forgiven me for my past and has made me a new creation through His son. He loves me enough to die for me. He brought me to a new family, He has given me purpose, and is preparing me to fight the good fight. I have never felt so loved and genuinely cared for by people. They have children and obligations, yet take the time to listen and know me.
He loves each and every one of us. He has gifted us with skills and talents to glorify Him and love one another. I feel empowered to fight in the revival of the heavens. To bring children home to their Father. To give the parentless nation comfort and guidance. To give hope to those who feel lost. To extend grace to those who feel like they could never be forgiven. To build up those in a world they know only to tear them down. I want this for the world because God has given it to me when I didn’t deserve it. When I was lost and hopeless, He rescued me. He wants all of His children to join Him in the kingdom ❤
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from ourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
