Trust.

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” 
― Corrie ten Boom

 Trust. Never has this word (or the quote above) rang truer in my life than now. As I sit staring at the price my college diploma will cost me and I realize it will take up half of my already meager salary my heart tightens with fear and anxiousness. I feel like hiding in a corner. How am I going to pay for everything? I struggle with feelings of hopelessness and wonder how it could have come to this. Have I not worked hard enough? Did I do something wrong? If it weren’t for the amazing friends and experience I had at Messiah, I might even question why I went to a school that was so expensive. And if I’m honest, my human weakness even causes me to struggle with the fact of why I chose to be a missionary in the first place instead of a job that pays better. 
 As my mind tries to wrap itself around the barrage of emotions going through my head all I can think about it is trust. 2 Corinthians 3: 4-6 says: 

“We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ. It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God. He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life.”


There is a reason I am here. There is a reason I went to the college that I did and there is a reason that I am being asked to trust in God and his provision like I never have before. I have love to share with people. A story that is unique. I can’t see the outcome or what is going to happen. I can’t plan it or be in control (and for those who know me, then you know I like to have things planned and organized). I have to trust. I have to trust that God will provide for my needs. I have to trust that he will move the right people to support me and I have to trust that even when things seem hopeless he will shine true just like he promised. Please pray for me in these next couple weeks as I finish my time in the states an prepare to go to Belize and lead mission trips for 7 weeks. Pray that I will keep my eyes on God, that I will find the courage to trust in Him for my finances while I’m gone and pray for those I will be serving that they will be open to the words myself (and my teams) have to say.

Finally, I ask you to consider supporting me on a monthly basis. I can’t move forward or continue my work without monthly supporters. If you would love to sit down and chat sometime please don’t hesitate to contact me. I love hearing from people who are just excited about what God is doing as I am. And if you know someone who would love to help me out, please pass my information along. Thank you all for your support and prayers. God Bless. I love you.


The Time Has Come…

A very short blog/update/prayer request.

Tomorrow I will be traveling back to Messiah College to participate in Senior Week activities and take the final walk of my undergraduate career. It will be a bittersweet celebration as I celebrate with some of the best ladies I have ever met in my life and say goodbye as we part ways to begin this new chapter of our lives. Please keep me in your prayers as I travel that nothing will go wrong. Please pray for us as we celebrate that we will be able to make awesome memories together and pray for us as we part ways that we will continue to keep Christ at the forefront of our thoughts and emulate him through our lives. 

Thank you for your continual support and prayers and I will endeavor to become an even better blogger as time goes on 🙂 Love you all!
