“You Won’t Fail”
“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her.” Luke 1:45
This verse just fits this year 2019 to me. Because back in 2017 when God told me to go and serve in Thailand I asked Him, “God – what if I fail You?” And God replied, “What if you fly?”
It made me realize if I’m doing it through God’s strength, I cannot fail. If He is in control of my life, I cannot fail. If He is leading and guiding me down this path, I cannot fail. Doesn’t mean it’s all going to be easy. Doesn’t mean it won’t be hard. Doesn’t mean it’s all going to be perfect and I won’t make mistakes. I would be failing Him if I didn’t do what He asked. God has just shown me that when He speaks, He fulfills His promises.
I cannot thank the Lord enough for 2019.
My friend Sara sent this verse, Luke 1:45, to me this past summer. Sometimes you need encouragement to remember Who is holding you and Who gave you that promise in the beginning and He will see you through till the end. There are some things I went through this year that were hard for me that most people don’t know about, but also some of the most amazing things happened that worked together to help me grow stronger in Christ.
At the beginning of this year I posted, “I know this year will grow my faith and strengthen my walk with God.” Those words are ever so true. As connected as I was back home with my family and OPG family, I was still physically alone for most of the year. I don’t know how to explain it but living like this, I just felt like I had an extra channel to Jesus. His wings were truly wrapped around me and He has become my closest friend. He is my comforter and my provider.
Thank you all for supporting and following my mission to Thailand in 2019! I pray you can continue to support and follow me in 2020 as I will be going, Lord willing, to South Africa, Jamaica, Papua New Guinea, and Thailand!
I have to admit with everything going on in 2020, I’m nervous as all get out. Sometimes I ask myself if I’m even old enough to do this but I think I’ll always ask that. (Haha) I know I shouldn’t be afraid though for the future because the Lord goes before me and He has proved Himself faithful forever. I’m blessed for the doors He has opened and pray things go smoothly as I walk through them. So stay tuned for more details to come!!
Much love to everyone and Happy New Year!!
