He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

9 years and Counting

Happy Birthday to our  9 yr old Rock Star!
God is so gracious and kind to have allowed us to parent this young girl for the past 9 years. I wept all last night and could not sleep because I tend to get overwhelmed over the fact that I was told I would never have kids and the Lord brought her into our lives. I'm so thankful. I still struggle in wanting more, but I'm thankful!
I'm such a blessed woman.
I love you so much Kai. Happy Birthday!!

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; 
The righteous runs into it and is safe. 

-Proverb 18:10

This image shows you exactly what I want to do this very moment. RUN! I want to abandon my sinfulness, to be honest sometimes I want to run away from who the Lord created me to be. (wife, mom, missionary) Why? Because it is just too darn hard. Its so hard to jungle many hats, and I dont think I'm suppose to try to.
 I pray all the time that the Lord would use my life, pour it out as a drink offering. Yet, I complain, and I become very tired when HE begins to do so. I'm running tonight, not to abandon ship, (though my flesh wants to) but to run in such a way, I revive my reward here before Christ return. MORE INTIMACY!! I just want MORE OF HIM!!

 I want to run into the arms of the one who is holding all the chaos around me into his hand. Please pray for me tonight.  Pray for me to be desperate for the things of the Lord. Pray as well for my husband and I, ministry can be draining. We need the Lord to renew our strength.

When it's all said and done,I'm just plain tired, and I KNOW God sees and knows that. I pray that I rely and trust in His grace during this time.
