Good afternoon, friends! Thanks for stopping by. I have absolutely wonderful news, which involves a previous post. Remember when I was reading through 'So Long, Insecurity'?? My first entry surrounding that book, titled Insecurity, listed a few insecurities that I was dealing with at the time. One of them was my insecurity that God would use me: He had taken me to Romania and opened my eyes to a world in desperation for Him. My passion for serving orphans had grown...literally exploding out of me. I was insecure about whether God would use me anymore...whether He wanted to or not.
Well, I have been hungry for Him to take me to a place where He is working with orphans, and teach me how to be His hands once again. The passion God instilled in me to love and serve orphans is overwhelming at times. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you also know that my husband and I look forward to adopting one day as God leads. (I would adopt a whole orphanage if God allowed it!!!) Praise God! He is taking me to work with orphans again! October 17-24, I will be serving in Acapulco, Mexico at Casa Hogar del Ninos. I cannot explain how completely thrilled I am that God is taking me to serve around 60 kids, ages 5-18, in Mexico, some of which are true orphans, while others have only one parent who cannot or will not take care of them. Casa Hogar gives these children a safe place to live as well as the means to attend school and live in a Christian environment, learning about the King of glory who promises that He will not leave us as orphans; He will come to us. (John 14:18)
A friend posted some lyrics on facebook earlier, and I was swept into the song instantly. It was one that I was blessed to hear the Romanians singing while I was there. If you have never heard the hurting and orphaned sing praises to our Father before...you are missing out on something truly beautiful! Please take the time to read through these lyrics, and praise our glorious God with me!
Who is this King of glory that pursues me with His love?
And haunts me with each hearing of His softly spoken words?
My conscience a reminder of forgiveness that I need.
Who is this King of glory that offers it to me?
Who is this King of angels, O precious Prince of peace?
Revealing things of Heaven, and all its mysteries!
My spirits ever longing for His grace in which to stand.
Who is this King of glory, Son of God and son of man?
Who is this King of glory with strength and majesty?
And wisdom beyond measure, the gracious King of Kings.
The Lord of earth and heaven, the creator of all things!
Who is this King of glory? He's everything to me!
His name is Jesus! Precious Jesus!
Lord Almighty, the King of my heart, the King of glory!
I hope you have a beautiful afternoon. Praise God that He is not finished with me yet!
