The Lord has been showing me so much lately..
Recently, I have gone through a time of extreme spiritual dryness. Even being on a missions trip didn't seem to help me through that dryness. I felt like it would really help. Yes, maybe it did help. But when I got home, that is when I started to feel God really working in me. I guess the missions trip was kind of like a push in that direction.
I thought I would share some of the things I wrote in my journal from the missions trip to coming home, etc... I think it will best show what was going on in me during the missions trip and coming home.
2/3: Why do I keep pushing God away?
2/10: Coming back has been very hard.
2/18: God is working in me. I can feel it. A growing desire to be in His Word and surrender myself to Him. Again.
After I felt God was really working in me, He started to show me certain things..
2/24: I was thinking last night and I believe God put this on my heart: What kind of older sister would I want? Am I being that kind of older sister to my sisters? I was convicted. I could be so much better as an older sister.
3/15: Am I being the kind of daughter I would want to have?
That was a lot of what was going on inside of me. I found that if I look at who I am as a sister and a daughter and what I would want in an older sister and daughter, I could see that I am nothing close to that.
There were other instances that I could see God at work in my life. It has been so encouraging and wonderful to see.
I just wanted to share a few of those things with you guys.
Also, below are some "nature" pictures from the missions trip.
