Challenging the comfort zone...

The time has come for me to leave the place of comfort and run with Jesus! I will be leaving Kansas City in 4 days! I am seriously grieving this season change, but excited about what lies ahead. My heart loves so deeply and the people that have been in my life for the past 7 years mean so much to me. I know its not the end of relationships and friendships, but it is an end to a beautiful season. My journey in the Lord has grown so much and I know I will never be the same person. What has taken place in my heart over the past 7 years are critical for this next adventure. My faith is about to be tested and will I believe that His banner over my life is truly LOVE? Will I be confident that walking with Jesus on the water will be better then being in the boat without Him? These questions fill my mind, but deep within my spirit I know the answer is a LOUD YES! I have to daily declare that I TRUST MY GOOD SHEPHERD! He is faithful to me and has NEVER let me down. He is making a way when there seems to be no way...Oh how I love HIM! It is time for love to be awakened in my heart and it is the LORD disturbing me! He wants my heart mature in love and taking this leap of faith really will be the test! There is such an excitement in my heart, but I honestly think that moving to the Philippines is going to be one of the hardest decisions I have had to make. If you think of me pray that I would continue to have courage in my heart to trust Him with all my life!

  1. You bet Eileen! This will be one of the hardest transitions to make, yet, as you know, when God is at the wheel it's the best place to be. :) Press on. It sounds like none of us are alone with various stuggles on our way in preparation. I'm praying!
