power to the weak.

inspiration: standing on the promises of God

He gives power to the weak 
and strength to the powerless. 
Even youths will become weak and tired, 
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. 
They will soar high on wings like eagles. 
They will run and not grow weary. 
They will walk and not faint. 
-Isaiah 40:29-31
it's been a long couple of weeks.
but i am standing firm on the promises of God.

i pray daily for wisdom
and strength
and to be a light to those around me.

i pray for guidance
and to lead well
and to humble myself.

i know that God has a plan and purpose for the trials i'm going through.
he is holding me to the fire and refining me for his glory.

For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver. -Psalm 66:10

what promise are you clinging to today?

experiencing provision.

inspiration: the affirmation of God's call for me.

preparing for Kenya has been an up-and-down journey.
these last few weeks have been especially roller-coaster-ish.

i knew that God had called me to go this year. a couple years ago, the seed was planted. it wasn't ready to be harvested last year, but at the beginning of this year while i was doing the daniel fast, it was confirmed that i would be going this year.

but i didn't know how.
