“He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” – Psalms 23:3
Long time no post!
It’s been a busy 2 months and I can’t believe how quickly my first quarter at COCM is almost over already! I’ll write a proper update about the past couple of weeks later, but currently I’m writing this post on a plane to Zagreb, Croatia.
Some of you may already know that I’ll be part of a missions team, Crossover, heading to Darda, Croatia for a short term missions trip to serve in the Roma community. And if I’m honest, I have no idea what to expect, but I know that whatever happens, God will be at the centre of it all.
It’s been a part of my calling from the beginning to step out of my comfort zone and to share his good news. Although I knew his calling and mission for me, there have been so many trials, doubts and fears that I’ve had to fight along this journey and this trip alone has been a test of faith and battles against evil spirits. As the time got closer for us to set off for this trip, so many problems with my own health came up. Thoughts of guilt and shame from my past kept popping up and I began to doubt my worthiness in carrying out such a mission.
However, through the hustle and bustle of preparing for this journey I am still reminded to seek first his kingdom. Anything that I’m seeking to do, to experience, is from Him and for His glory alone.
Now that I’m actually on my way to Darda, I look back to the past two months, and already, I can see how God has changed my heart. I now see flaws in myself I didn’t see, or at least didn’t acknowledge before and I only hope I will better myself as I live for someone so much greater than I am.
I’m so excited to share more about my experiences and what I’m learning, but for now this is it. So much can happen if you only stop and let God do his work in you!
Until next time,
