I try to come up with a title that is related to the post, but my brain only produces odd ones…
This post is just going to be a little bit of ramblings, up-dating ye on just stuff.
I have determined myself to learn Russian, and know a handful of words thus far, but I will admit it is getting harder :P Very fascinating though. I love Russia and the language, and so I’m learning it. Plus I would like to go there someday; maybe adopt a few children, mission there…etc. :)
Most of you know how much my heart has a place for India though. That spot in my heart as been re-lit and a huge yearning. I am beginning to pray for India as a country and place it all in His capable hands. I email a young man in India, who runs an orphanage type place, and he contacted me recently (Just this morning actually), and asked for prayer for the children, as they are getting viral fevers, and prayers are greatly needed. Yesterday, my elder sister was here (with her baby of course!) and in the afternoon we decided to watch one of Noah’s new movie things called “The Torchlighters: Heroes of Faith” – they are about various Heroes of Faith, and their stories, in cartoonish form. It’s kind of hard to explain. Mum got them from Voice of the Martyrs, for my younger sister Noah, so she can watch good, Biblical things – and it has ended up that we watch them with her :) Yesterday we watched one about Amy Carmichael. It was actually our first one to see. Honestly, there were parts where I wanted to cry – because of the reality of it. This isn’t just a make-believe story, it happened; and bad things still happen. Watching it, just really rekindled my heart’s desire to go there. That is not to say I had given up on my desire, but it had been a little watered-down, simply because I haven’t been as focused. I don’t know when God will have we go over there, or if He even will, but I am wondering if it will be soon. I turn 17 in 11 more days, and graduate in the spring (though, I kind of already have graduated now; I’m only doing a few things) and know that it could be any time – I definitely feel God preparing me; there is no doubt about that. He is preparing us all for His purpose. Yes, we will go through pain, and scratched and feel like we’ll come out all bruised and broken, but really, He is healing our bruises, and making us whole and clean again. To be the perfect Bride for Him. It doesn’t matter what He’ll have us doing – it matters that He has our hearts, and knows we are His completely. He is a loving and merciful God, and just waits.
I often don’t feel equip, or ready to mission, and share about Him when He calls me to go; but I know I don’t have to be, because it is Him who does all the work. It is Him who does all the healing, and all the saving. He just wants me to obey and follow Him, using me as a vessel for His glory.
