When you reach that point of realization that your plans might not be in line with God’s plans, its like a breath of fresh air.  It took me a while, yes, but I finally have a sense of peace about a certain situation in my life. 

God has blessed me with wonderful people in my life who continue to uplift and pour into me daily.  He surprised me the other day when he put someone new in my life..perhaps someone I didn’t even want in my life.  God opens doors left and right.  He is constantly teaching me to love, no matter the circumstances.  He is also, through this person, showing me that there are people I may not know praying for me specifically from all the way across the planet.  That blows my mind and gives me an overwhelming feeling of grace.  He knows how I feel about this person.  Even though she is my sister in Christ, its natural for me to feel this way about her.  But I love her because she is my sister in Christ.  

I’m well aware that none of you reading this (if anyone reads this) really know what I am talking about.  But God knows.  He knows my heart on the matter.  I’m extremely thankful for this person and their willingness to pray and uplift me from afar.  We all need those kinds of people in our lives.  Encouragers, people who understand where you are because THEY HAVE BEEN THERE TOO. Its cool how God works.  

I know that as long as I continue to focus on Him and my plans to better His Kingdom, wether is be in Greece, Australia, or wherever; my life will fall into place.  My God loves me and has a plan for my life.  I can talk to my God about anything.  I get goosebumps thinking about that.  

Easter is coming up.  This is such a great time to remember what He did for me.  He didn’t just die on a cross to save me; He died on a cross to save the World.  ”For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son.  So that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish BUT have eternal life.” -John 3:16.  My God isn’t like any other God. He works in mysterious ways.  In giving my life to Him, I’m trusting in Him with my life.  I surely wouldn’t want to trust anyone else with my life.

"BECAUSE every thirty seconds another person becomes a victim of sex trafficking."

But our core validation, our primary validation has to come from God. And until it does, until we look to Him for healing of our souls, our relationships are really hurting by looking to each other for something only God can give.

Surely God wants to use rescued people to rescue people.

My summer will be magnificent.  Words cannot describe the joy I get from knowing that I am dedicating a majority of my summer vacation to serving the Lord and putting my passport to good use.  As a matter of fact, words can’t describe the joy I get from serving my God.  We are called to serve.  When I think of all the people who’s lives I might be able to touch as I journey from India then way down to Costa Rica, I get a feeling like I’m doing what’s right….what God has called me to do.  I am the most unsure person you will ever meet.  I don’t know where I will be in 5 years; I just know that I want to be glorifying God with my life.  That is my goal.  I am so lucky that He would die to save me.  I will live my life in a way that honors Him and brings Glory to Him… Including my summer dedicated to short term missions trips through Northeast India and Costa Rica.  SOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!

Am I crazy to think that everything is a sign? Lately, a lot of things in my life are pointing to the direction of Thessaloniki, Greece with A21…and I love it. Just thoughts swirling my brain as I longboard today.

Did you know that there are over 27 million slaves in the world today?  That’s more than there ever has been in the history of mankind.  Every day, women and children are being forced to work as strippers, prostitutes and sex slaves against their will.  People are being forced into manual labor against their will and being beaten when they don’t comply.  This must be put to a stop.
It is one of my lifelong dreams to work and be a part The A21 Campaign.  I love what they are doing and the impact they are making on people’s lives for Christ.  Christine Caine is the wonderful woman who is partially in charge.  My hope is to be stationed in their Greece location.  I get chills thinking about that first moment when I get to grab the hand of a woman who has been enslaved into sex trafficking for a long time and tell her she is free.  I’m getting tears and a big smile on my face as I write this.  The plans God has for my life are out of this world but I can’t wait to see where following his will is going to take me.
