Shine Brightly

This morning during my quiet time I read Psalm 32:8, the LORD says;
“I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”

As I read these words I couldn’t help but think it is not an accident that myself and nine other women will be going to Haiti the end of September and serve with Mission of Hope.  I believe each of us were hand picked for this trip.

What does the Lord have in store for us and the people we will meet? How will He knit our hearts together? What will we learn from the people we are going to serve? I don’t know the answers to these questions, but I do know I feel amazing peace knowing WHO is in control.

I’m told Haiti is a very dark place but I also know a flame shines the brightest when surrounded by darkness. From what I’ve read and been told, Mission of Hope is that bright shining light to thousands of people. I’m so excited to see all God is doing through them and humbled by the opportunity to serve along side them and meet the people of Haiti.

My prayer for our team is that God’s love will over flow from us and shine brightly wherever we go. May we be surprised by the unexpected and our eyes open to see God's hand at work directing our steps and the events of each day and by the end of our trip may we each be a little more like Jesus.
