Sufficient Grace

19 Jun

Kevin wrote this for the worship team, but it’s a great word for us all, especially as we head to the Dominican Republic.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong – 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
In about 16 hours I will be on a plane headed to the Dominican Republic.  This past week for me has been filled with lots of “to-do” type of tasks and tons of things I feel I have to get done before I leave.  I’ll admit that I’ve felt inadequate, under-prepared, and even overwhelmed at times.

That’s why this verse is so important to me right now.  It has little to do with Sunday’s music, but it has a lot to do with what I’ve been experiencing.  And I hope in some small way it encourages you—whether you’re going on the trip or not.  God doesn’t want you to be perfect and have it all together; it’s okay to feel weak, stressed, and overwhelmed.  Because then when God does His work it will be all about Him and have very little to do with you.  That’s the beauty of all this: Christ’s strength is so much better than our own.  Rest in that truth this week; wherever this week may take you.

5 DAYS AND COUNTING

17 Jun

Hey Friends,

Can you believe we leave in just a few days?

It’s  time to get the blog up and going as we prepare for the Dominican Republic for 2012 where 30 of us will venture down to Barahona to work at DR 800 with Compassion International!  Check out these familiar faces!

From now until June 30, family and friends can follow the blog for the trip this year.

Please pass on this link to your family and friends so they can follow our trip. We will do the best we can to blog (as long as we can access the Internet).

Take a little time to read the posts from last year, and begin to pray for those we will meet again!

Can’t wait!

Patricia
