Please lead me...

After another moving church service yesterday I picked up a piece of paper, well 2 pieces of paper actually, about the Women's Ministry Mission trip to Romania this summer.

When they were talking about it during the service I was taken back to my high school mission trip days and was quickly reminded how much I miss them!! Then I thought maybe this is something I NEED to do. After seeing the cost I got a little scared, it's quite a bit of money and living with just one income right now I know there is no way we can afford for me to go. So, I started praying. I want God to lead me where he wants me to go. I know if he wants me in Romania he will figure out a way for me to get there and afford to be there!

So, if you're reading this, I ask that you pray with me that God leads me in the right direction, whether it's to Romania or it's just staying right here at home, I will go where he tells me!

Finding Value

Today I learned something from an amazing sermon!

IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT ME!  At times I tend to think this way but after listening today and seeing what God is capable of I now know that it isn't all about me and what I want!

I am now going to be helping other people find the value in themselves to make myself more valuable! IF I can't help people see how valuable they are then how can I see myself as a valuable part of this community, and this world?

God knows we are all valuable in our own unique ways, otherwise we wouldn't be here. He teaches us through his words in the Gospel to find value in our lives and in our homes and in our community! We must branch out and help those that aren't believers or that are questioning their beliefs or faith find the value in themselves and the value in believing in Jesus Christ and our Father!

You are valuable, and you are wanted!
