The Time Has Come...

It's here...Saturday's the day. It's hard to believe that I'm about to do this. Most of me is excited, but I would be lying if I said there wasn't a part of me that thinks I'm absolutely crazy for changing everything in my life by moving halfway across the world. However, it's gotta be better than this state of limbo I've been living in for the last 6 months.

It's an incredible thing feel the grace of God covering you as you take a chance and follow him, to know that he has you in the palm of his hand, that no weapon formed against you shall prosper, and that he is greater than anything you may encounter. Those are just some of the promises that I'm walking in today. When I begin to feel anxious thinking of the problems I may encounter, I remember that God knew the end from the beginning for he is the author of both.

Not only do I feel a supernatural empowerment from the Lord, but I also feel the prayers of my friends and family who are standing by me in this. To put it simply, without prayer we do not stand. There is no greater weapon/tool that God has given us than prayer. I recently listened to cd's from a prayer tools class my brother attended at his church. They completely rocked my world regarding prayer...well, maybe more like revolutionized the way I view prayer. I look forward to what God is going to do in my prayer life while overseas and here's to hoping I come back a completely different woman!

While I am in Romania, I would love hearing about what is going on with my friends and family back in the U.S. I know it's easy to think that I'm too busy or there's too much going on, but what helps the most with the loneliness I'm likely to encounter is staying connected with people. So, please send me your prayer requests, updates, or latest tidbits from your life. It will be great to hear from you!
