For the glory of your name, O Lord, preserve my life. Because of your faithfulness, bring me out of this distress. ~ Psalm 143:11, NLT
May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

Believe God, don’t just believe IN God!
God doesn’t give you the people you WANT,
He gives you the people you NEED. To help you,
To hurt you, to leave you, to love you and
To make you into the person you were meant to be.

Risk more than some think is safe
Dream more than some think is practical
Expect more than some think is possible
— -The Missionary Heart
I was called not to comfort or success but to obedience
There is no joy outside of knowing Jesus and serving Him
