Blowing from the far north to the deep south stretching to the sunny east expanding across the wild west, the seasons of life enter into our homes in a variety of forms and directions. Such seasons hold special importance and impactful lessons leading to our growth in the momentary time on earth. I have found a consistent presence of our Faithful Father in every transition of unfamiliar territory. He uses these periods to refine His children while sanctifying and transforming them progressively into His holiness. Through life the Father further displays His faithfulness and goodness by providing fellow believers alongside the journey. Because of Him and his unending grace I am richly blessed. At the present moment I find myself shifting from one distinct season to another. Within a few days I am to say goodbye to my cherished friends and unique moments in Southeast Asia as I warmly welcome my family and loved ones in the States.
The experience in Southeast Asia has been profitable, rewarding, and unforgettable. My heart will never be the same. Though I may look the same outwardly, inwardly I am not the equivalent person I was six months ago. The Great Almighty has moved many, many mountains inside of me. Again, only by the Almighty can I ever become more like His Son each day. At times, these changes can be difficult, painful even. But I have found a great hope in His continued work through all my muck and mire while He brings me into His glory. I still have mountains to be moved in my heart. But these mountains should not be my prime focus. My focus should rest in the sight of the Son who is capable of conquering all mountains in me. Quite incredible when you thing about it: me, a sinful and unworthy creature, saved by the blood of the Son so that I will one day stand blamelessly in front of the Perfect King. Truly, I have done nothing to deserve favor in His eyes. By His powerful, gracious and loving hand he has molded me into a justified adopted daughter, chosen to dwell in His courts forever.
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
Many moments of memory have taken place here in Southeast Asia; too many to count and too valuable to choose only a few. Therefore, I will continue to exalt His name, He ultimate is responsible for the joy I hold in my heart and movement of truth in this land! Praise His name! Oh Nations Praise His Name! He is worthy of all glory, praise and recognition! There is no one like Him in the entire universe! My pr*yer for all believers:
“I keep asking the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pr*y also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. The power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in the Son when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms.”
Those who keep their life will lose it but those who lose their life will gain it! He is the purpose for our very breathe. One day all knees shall bow and every tongue will confess Him as King!
Great thanks and appreciation towards all our pr*yer warriors and supporters! We are exceedingly grateful!
