seek prayer always
Everyone has a story to tell. When we make the connection between our story and God's great story, we come away with HIStory, which involves each and every one of us.
"...He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire." - Hebrews 1:7
As I sat in the second row at church singing "Hosanna" with tears trickling down my cheeks, I felt His presence so tangible, so real in that moment. I had never sat so up front as I usually just snuck in and sat in the back. But that morning the lyrics penetrated my heart as I sang " Heal my heart and make it clean. Open up my eyes to the things unseen. Show me how to love like you have loved me. Break my heart for what breaks your. Everything I am for Your kingdom's cause. As I walk from earth into eternity." I had sung this song so many times in the car with my girls. But why was it so different this time? Well, God had put a flaming desire in my heart to do mission work alongside my family. That morning as I sang, I prayed, "God send me on a mission trip with my husband and girls. Prepare our hearts for this day and make a way." In my mind this would happen at least 10 years down the road with the girls in high school. I didn't expect Him to open the doors and send us off one year later.
