Joy Will Come

Joy will come in the morning
Riding on the wings of the dawn
I know
Joy will come in the mourning
Surely as You are God.

Joy will come, believe
Joy will come, Joy will come

Joy will come, believe
Joy will come, Joy will come

Joy will come like the harvest
Reaping for tears that we sow
I know
Joy will run to the farthest place
Surely as You are God

Joy will come, believe
Joy will come, Joy will come

Joy will come, believe
Joy will come, Joy will come

What is this hope I feel
It's helping
What is this peace beyond
Understanding
You fix the broken heart
There's healing in Your wings

Joy will come, believe
Joy will come, Joy will come

What is this whisper small
I'm hearing
So far above it all
It's speaking
Your still the sovereign Lord
There's healing in your wings.

This quick trip has showed me the hearts of the Zambians. They work so hard to get things done for these children. Not only is joy coming to the children, but I see the faces of the Zambian staff and know that joy is coming to them as well.  The LORD is storing up so much in Heaven for their arrival. They battle the devil face to face every day, but never give up. Powerfully encouraging.

Joy will come :)

Breaking this Flesh

I started praying 2 days ago that the Lord would start breaking my flesh. My prayer continues even today to be:
"I want to unlearn this world.....Jesus, humble my heart, break my flesh, and restore me to be more of a reflection of you."
What a beautiful vision of a servant--to disregard the flesh on his or her body in order to glorify the Lord more and more. Too bad I'm soaked in the sin of this world. I'm not saying we sinners can't be someone who disregards the things of this world and strive for the things that glorify the Lord, but I am saying that it's not an easy task. I can't say that I've seen the answer of this prayer yet, but I know that each day that passes, more of my flesh is getting destroyed as my eyes are fixed on Jesus.
Today I had the privilege of visiting all of the schools that we currently have up and operating. It was amazing. Although the facilities aren't complete, the Spirit of the Lord is present. He is driving this w…

Adjusting to Life in Africa

Saturday morning I read mainly in the psalms and it was so beautiful. The author repeated in multiple chapters that ALL creation should praise God. The leaves, the insects, the trees, the mountains, everything that has breath should praise the LORD. It is an incredible picture of Romans 8 when it says that all creation waits in agony for the Lord. Every living, breathing thing is called to sing praises to the Lord even as we grow old and decay.

I looked to my left at the verse, "Every thing that has breath praise the Lord" and a flower opened a little wider than it was a second before. And the Lord said, "I am and I see you". I mean, when i'm praising the Lord, he sees me, and when I'm frustrated, angry, and sinning, he sees me too. Needless to say, I have been more aware of my thoughts and decisions since Saturday morning!

After I read my bible, each of the past 4 days I've been here, I have read from a book called Radical by David Platt. Have you heard …

A Little Girl

Allow me to paint a picture for you:

The road before you is rocky. The dirt is thick. At 8 years old you walk at dusk, holding the hand of your little brother. You know this path well.  This happens often--you leading him along the avenues through your neighborhood.  Even though you do this all the time, that familiar fear still consumes you.  He's not walking fast enough, but then again, he never does. You drag him along quickly, and your heart begins to heavily pound. Your mind starts racing, "I thought I had more time this afternoon. I wish auntie hadn't asked me to get the water so late again. Why does the sun have to set so quickly?" You quicken your pace. Still a mile left to go. You round the corner as darkness floods the street. The recognizable sound of loud rap music coming from the tavern reminds you of that dreadful night 3 months ago.  The vision fills your mind and your pace rapidly increases. Those drunk men whispering in your ear to come with them.  T…
