You read that right! I am actually going to be traveling next month, all the way down to sunny MEXICO, for a missions trip!! Just me and well, 6 other people from my church. But no kids or husband, or even students.
I can't believe it! It's amazing how things work out.
I've felt as though the Lord wanted me to go on this trip since the day I heard it announced. In my spirit, I knew that I was supposed to be there. And yet, daily circumstances weren't adding up to going.
Want to know a secret victory for me???
I. didn't. stress. about. it. at. all.
Not one little tiny bit. I laid it down (really I did!!) at His feet. I told Him, that I wanted to go and that I felt as though He wanted me there. I took the directions He told me, stored them up in my heart, pondering them. And then waited.
A couple of times, I thought that I was going. And then things would fall through. I would find myself a bit disappointed. But then I would shake it off, and think to myself, God will get me there if I am supposed to go.
Last Friday, I got word that I indeed was going!
To think, I have less then a month to pray, prepare, and organize!
But, hey!! I'm going to Mexico! I really am!!!
PS - Those of you who know me in real life, will get the exciting details sooner then later!
