How bad do I want it?

Jen on May 22, 2010

So it is Saturday morning - 2:17 a.m. and I cannot sleep.  I have so many things running through my head!  We are moving - two weeks from today.  It is the first big move.  Moving from an apartment to a home is nothing - we barely had enough to fill a bedroom :).  Now we have four more people.  It's not just about Mark and me anymore.  It is caring about the kids and including them in the process of getting rid of things and deciding what to take.  Sometimes it just feels overwhelming and at the same time - a huge blessing.  I talked with our Realtor last night and she said that after the Obama credit ended - selling homes slowed way down. I know that God sold this house and I am so incredibly thankful for that amazing gift!

Raising support - I cannot tell you how much I have prayed and prayed that God would help us raise 50% by the end of June.  I have prayed specifically for churches and individuals to have a burden on their heart to partner with us financially.  It is hard calling people.  I never want to bother them or pressure them.  I know that it is God who places the desire on their hearts, not me.  But I need to do my part.  I need to give people the opportunity to be blessed by what God is doing, to be used of Him to reach the children of Nicaragua.  At the same time - I pray - daily - that God would help me want what He wants - that I would desire His will above my own, and that I would believe with all my heart that He is so much wiser than my prayers.  Love you Jesus.
