Wow, today we were actually wondering (not the first time either) why God chose us for this calling. So many people do not understand. Doubt & confusion fill our minds.

We will continue to seek answers…we will get on our knees & ask God to reassure us again…does He really want us to bring our 4 children to Haiti? Now?!? Will we be effective for His kingdom? Is this Him asking us? Can we wait? Can’t we be senders instead of goers?

He has already made the answers so clear so many times. Why do we have so little faith?

We want to do your perfect will Lord…please forgive us for our lack of faith & guide us. Amen

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and of sound mind. 2 TIMOTHY 1:7

For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. JAMES 3:16-18

9-12Be assured that from the first day we heard of you, we haven’t stopped praying for you, asking God to give you wise minds and spirits attuned to his will, and so acquire a thorough understanding of the ways in which God works. We pray that you’ll live well for the Master, making him proud of you as you work hard in his orchard. As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work. We pray that you’ll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that he has for us. Colossians 1:9-12
