I have been thinking lately how very blessed I am. During this whole process of the last two years of activity Dan and I have been blessed with being on the same page and truly loving and respecting each other. We have loved talking with people about what God is doing in Nigeria and how he is leading us to be there soon. I do not know many couples who are able to raise support and work full-time until all of their funds are raised. God has truly blessed us!
Yesterday Dan was making me laugh hysterically. I realized once again, how very blessed I am to be married to my best friend, father of my children, and life partner. I am so excited to see how God is going to use us as a couple and individually as we work in Nigeria.
We have been through rough times, and I have told you in past blogs how I was ready to throw the life I knew away and leave Dan and everything behind. What if I would have done that? Think of the joy and blessing I would be missing out on and the privilege of serving my Savior to reach unreached people groups and dying people for Him? I’m so thankful for the God of grace and peace who rules my life and loves me unconditionally!
My point for today is this: God has a plan, a big plan for your life. What will you miss out on because you are holding on to anger, bitterness, grief? Dan, in his empathetic way tells me occasionally, “I have one word for you, lettergo!” I hate to sound cliche, but let go and truly let God use you!
