Today, March 20th, 2019 my oldest daughter and I will be off to Europe, for about 10 days, to share the gifts that God has given us through music, song and dance. We are getting to share the good news about Jesus Christ.
I’m writing this as we sit and wait for our first flight from Denver, Colorado all the way to Ireland! So, if you see any spelling or other errors please exercise grace towards me ;-).
In this post I hope to give you a quick update of what has been happening in the last few months in my life as a mom, wife and most importantly as a follower of Jesus.
Just because I’m going on a “Mission trip” though, it doesn’t mean I have only been focused on preparing for this one event in time. Oh! If only that would be so! In the midst of everything it takes to be wholeheartedly ready to share the love of God, outside of my home and country, I’ve still needed to fulfill the original, and most holy mission I have been called to… as a wife and mother. I have especially been completely engrossed with the rest of my family’s needs as a homeschool mom.
So, for the last three months or so, I have been preparing, along with my daughter, by working, outside of the home to acquire enough funds to provide for our passage and accommodations.
Let let me give you an update as of yesterday and go back in time.
As far as the TLC squared Ministry goes we just held another Tea ‘n Talk featuring Gina Fontaine.
You can see a quick video recap of what she shared here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/tlcsquared.org/videos/
I’ve also been busy with the Confessions of a Mother’s Heart ministry, COMH-Unity group. I hosted a gathering in March. Check out the video here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/tlcsquared.org/videos/
That brings me to the present. So, as my daughter and I do our best to get wholeheartedly ready to share the same love He gave us, in Ireland and England, I have not been immune to the weight or presurres of my mundane life.
Instead, I have experienced many more ups and downs that come with doing life. In the interest of time, for now, I will leave out mostly everything I’ve struggled with. But, I will however share that through this process God has been involved in it all.
When I have doubted my abilities, His Spirit faithfully reminded me of His will and His ways.
When I’ve needed spiritual backup through fervent prayer, He reminded me of His provision for His church, my real blood relatives, to encourage me along the way, especially a particular mentor mom I’ve mentioned before.
When illness came through this winter season, He provided the rest and recovery necessary to get back up and out in our daily lives.
Instead of focusing on the negative as much, my first goal, in this Confessions of a Mother’s Heart Blog has been to see the good that comes out of all my trials or tribulations. My second priority is to make sure that you, the reader is fully aware of a God of the universe who created you for a specific purpose. You were created by God, in your mother’s womb, for Him. Do you want to know more ? Visit “Peace with God” to know God personally: Know God personally!
Being mission minded takes intention. Setting your mind on the prize is the best way to stay there. So, I will “set my mind on things above, not on things below” (Colossians 3:1,2) while enjoying the ride, so to speak.
I’ll be blogging more in the next few weeks so I can keep you posted on our “Mission trip”
To God be the glory!
