The Last Hours

Hey there!

In the few hours we have left hear, most of us with common sense are packing, sleeping, or praying.

I on the other-hand am completely restless, and truthfully not out of excitement but slightly out of nervousness. The closer this trip becomes the more real it feels. I have trouble adapting to unexpected change and I guarantee that whatever God has in store is going to be unexpected. But I a assured that God is powerful and that He will work through us. Whether its raining (forecast...thunderstorms -.-) or the sun is shining, God is on our side.

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." 1 John 4:18



  1. Last night I was also feeling very nervous. I felt spiritually unprepared, stressed because I did not get around to finishing the things I needed to get done before leaving, anxious because I had to work today, and just nervous in general about the trip. But today as I went to work, I just kept thinking that all my thoughts are centered on me. I am worried, I am stressed, I am nervous, I dont want to go to work, I have a million things to do. But this trip and this life in general is not about me. So I just stopped and acknowledged God for who He is. Not only does this shift in focus affect how I react to rude customers and annoying situations, but the more our focus is on God, the more people will see our love and passion for the Lord and desire to know this God that we know and worship. I just got back from work and now I have to pack. I want my focus on this trip to be on God the entire time. I dont want to hear myself thinking, I'm tired, I'm hot, I'm hungry, me me me. I want to be thinking, God why do you have us doing this today? What is your purpose for us being here at this time? Father, how can I glorify you when I talk to this person. Give me Your words, that this person may have faith in you, etc.

  2. I completely agree with you Katie. Initially I felt there was still a million things I felt I needed to do before leaving. But as you said this trip is not about us. It's about God and we're just a vessel for his glory.
