It's a Complicated Path

So I missed a few days of reading Jesus Calling and I laugh because God knew I needed to read this one today...funny how He always does things like that. Here it is...
I feel like the path is becoming more and more complicated. I have constantly been trying to plan and figure out what my future looks like. I feel like I'm in a maze and can't find the right direction. I've hit dead end after dead end. I have all these different scenerios running through my head, but then I have the what if's or how will this work or can I afford that. I've been an emotional roller-coaster as I'VE tried to figured out my path. I've been so busy trying to put the pieces together that I've lost sight of the fact that HE is always with me holding me by the hand. HE will guide me with HIS counsel. 

So this fog that is laying before me is a good thing. He's protecting me. He's reminding me to live in the present. I need to communicate with HIM here and now. Yes someday this fog will lift and I will see the path so clearly but for now HE's reminding me I need to focus on HIM and the path right before me. So today I'm not worrying about where I will live, guardianship, the adoption, finances, completing paperwork, relationships, or the future. 

Today I'm turning my focus over to HIM and resting in HIM and seeking HIM for the way out of this maze!

Something else I read today...
Let go and let God 

A lot of times we allow life and its stressors to take us to points in which we just shut down, lose hope, and lose faith, instead of allowing ourselves to continue in the pace, and in the direction that God wants to take us. 

The reality in each situation that we face is that God's wisdom is always there for us to feed on, even in times we feel alone, lost, and misguided. When you just allow yourself to let go of the wheel, and trust that God is going to take control of the spiritual vehicle you are driving, then supernatural things will start to happen in your life. 

Many don't realize the power of making the decision of whether to truly believe, and to not worry, not fret, and live a life full of God's guidance instead of their own. Be committed to the belief that God will take care of situations that you simply can't, be consistent with this belief, and God will consistently work inside of you.

Letting go and letting God.....

Oops...been awhile :/ school is off to great start!!

A blog started at the beginning of October...yikes!!! Today I finshed it!! I don't have as many photos though because unfortunately my computer crashed on me. :/ such is life around here! :)

Things have been so busy around Grave Village!! 

In the beginng of October school started!!! We were scrabbling to make sure all 53 kids uniforms fit, had shoes, hair accessories, belts and all the other little things children in Haiti need to go to school...and we made it!!! :)

Look these beautiful little girls all ready to go!!!!

Such a blessing to provide education to this children in hopes to overcome poverty and have a better future!! 

As the school year has taken off it has been so fun to see all the kids in their purple uniforms coming up from Titanyen and going to school! The playground is filled every morning with the kids dressed in their beautiful uniforms! I love it! Then to see them all lined up on the basketball court singing and praying before they walk off to their class room in a single file line by grade! 

Another great thing about the school year is the Friday morning prayer and worship time! Every Friday morning the begin the day by singing praises to The Lord, hearing a little message from Pastor Wesley and praying! What a great way to start a Friday!! 

We also now have a beautiful new clinic!!! So that means everything had to be set up in this beautiful new clinic! We have had a great team here helping set it all up and getting it ready for patients!! Our staff and students are so thankful for this blessing!

We truly are blessed here at Grace Village and we give thanks for that!!
