reading and encouragement for your day.

hey all.

I found this article a couple days ago and thought I would  share it with you. it is so timely and gives more insight into what is happening in Romania and why this is the second time I will be going there.

also thought I'd share today's Joyce Meyer devotional..

God Causes Things to Happen at the Right Time

Are you waiting for the desires of your heart to begin to manifest? Are you praying for bondages to fall off of you so you can see your dreams come to pass? Are you waiting and praying for the salvation of friends and family? Are you trusting God for prosperity, favor, promotion, honor, and all the blessings found in His Word?

Are you tired of waiting for harvest time in your life? Are you frustrated, crying out, "When, God, when?" Then you need to understand that God's timing is often a mystery. He doesn't do things on our timetable. Yet His Word promises that He will not be late, not one single day.

God causes things to happen at exactly the right time! Your job is not to figure out when, but to make up your mind that you won't give up until you cross the finish line and are living in the radical outrageous blessings of God! The more you trust Jesus, and keep your eyes focused on Him, the more life you'll have. Trusting God brings life. Believing brings rest. So stop trying to figure everything out, and let God be God.

That's a great article you found. I was wrong about a few things I thought about Romania. Still super sad statistics. My heart breaks for all those little ones. Love on them for me while you are there.
