God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson
Thanks for visiting,
After I get all of the mutating missionary blogs from the past re-posted here, I will continue writing fresh ones. Enjoy the review...

Loving God in the Moment
So, recently I was reviewing some writings of my past.
I came up on the Jots and Thoughts from yesterday.
But, I also came across a prayer request journal from about the same time.
In this prayer request journal I realized.
Of the 5 things that I was praying over - deep and big things -four of them have been not only answered but given a resounding 'yes' to.
What is even more interesting, only in the last few months has one of the prayers been answered, and the prayer request date was in 2001.
We are so quick to give up in our prayers. And yet, here I sit having all of these things answered.
If I had not written them down, I probably would not have realized that I had even prayed for them.
That is one of my big reasons for logging my prayers. I love seeing His hand answer.
But, what intrigues me more today is the prayers. The actual requests.
Right now, I am in the same position as I was in 2001.
I don't know exactly what to pray for, have got no answers, don't know what questions to ask exactly. But, I know that my prayers are vital.
I know that they deepen my relationship with my God.
I think I am always just a little bit confused as to what door to walk through. Whether to go up the stairs, or stay in the hall.
Am I a young child in this position or am I old and worn out?
Do I want to sit with the crowd or sit alone?
Or even more importantly, where do YOU want me to sit, Lord?
Which stringed instrument am I?
Am I a cello or a harp?
What did you make me to be?
What music should I be playing Lord?
Where do You want me to start?
These questions and more.
But, I write them down and I pray them out, and I seek His word for answers, and watch His hand move in my life and I love this relationship of very weak servant to very GRAND LORD!
And I enter the ballet.
And even if I am only one tiny bit player, a drummer, or a ballerina, in His grand production - I know that I am in the dance... really in the dance!!!!!
May your days be filled with entering the dance.
I encourage you to save the prayers in a journal.
There to be seen and remembered for years to come.
A little about me
I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
