I just wanted to share with you what God showed me this morning. I have been reading a daily devotional by Louie Giglio called Goliath Must Fall: Winning the Battle Against Your Giants. Obviously it talks a lot about David and his fight against Goliath and how God gave him the strength and the courage to do something the rest of the Israelites were afraid to do.
Again it has been a while since I have shared anything so I wanted to fill you in on where we are at. We have overcome one of our GIANTS this week, a Goliath to us, we sold our house. As many of you are aware this was something we did not do on our own but with many of you as well; you praying and with God opening up that door. This is such a huge roadblock out of our way so we can now focus on finishing up our monthly and cash budgets. You see when we started this journey we knew it was going to take trusting in God and a lot of stepping outside of my comfort zone to make this possible.
The devotional talked about gaining victory over your comfort zone and refusing to wait for all the pieces to be lined up before making a move. It means being willing to go in a direction that doesn't feel familiar and what matters most is moving in God’s strength instead of our own. I loved this from the devotional as well “remember that faith thrives from discomfort”. So as we continue on in the mission to get to Guatemala, we need to still overcome some “GIANTS” but we know fully that God is in control. We just want to thank you all for your continued prayers and for all the partners we have gained.
