I’m so frustrated.
No one likes being misunderstood.
Everyone would like for people to think the same as them.
If you believe in something so very much, isn’t it hard when no one GETS it like you do?
I feel like that of my relationship with Jesus pretty often.
I have been CAPTURED, CAPTIVATED.
All I can seem to do is praise my Savior and rejoice in the glory of who He is.
I trust in no one as much as I do in Him.
I love no one as much as I do Him.
I fear in nothing for I have Him.
My life is a constant joy because of His grace.
I am bonded to Him, attached, inseparable.
I want SO MUCH to impart this great love to the youth we’re working with in worship.
But if their hearts aren’t open, I am just speaking empty words.
I KNOW my words aren’t enough, I KNOW nothing I can do will make a difference if I’m not giving it to the Lord to take care of.
It’s hard to believe that there’s nothing else I can do, but I really need to relinquish control on this one.
I’ve been frustrated lately with our teachings and practices and discipleship times with the youth.
We are spending so much time – and I don’t believe it’s wasted, it’s just discouraging when nothing happens – and not seeing a change in spiritual lives.
For Sunday night when we’re singing in service, I see a glimmer of something more wanting to come out. There’s a vulnerability that’s almost shown and a pouring out of the Spirit that’s being held back for fear of embarrassment.
I’m over it. I’m so tired of the enemy having a hold on the powerful worship warriors I know I have in my care.
I’m just searching my mind now, wracking my brains to figure out what Jesus wants me to do to light this fire underneath them.
I need your prayers for a release of the Holy Spirit into the hearts of 3 youth in particular that I have so much hope in.
And all this being said, I can still see an incredible change and improvement in the worship program since the beginning of Brandon and I working intensively with it. God has been working, slowly but surely, and He’s challenging us to challenge the youth now.
I am proud of how their voices have been strengthened, their prayers have had more passion, and they’ve sung from their souls more and more each week. But we’ve hit a plateau and we’re needing the Lord’s freedom from it.
I pray my life can be example of the Lord’s power and love.
That’s all I want.
That’s all I’ll ever want.
He lives in me and that’s the reason I’m alive!
URGENT PRAYER REQUEST:
Allan David, a 4 year old who is in my Sunday School class, I take to Preschool 2 days a week, and whose family is very dear to my heart has been having some medical issues.
He fell about 3 months ago, hurt his leg, and never got it professionally checked out.
I went with him and his aunt on Thursday to go get X-rays and see what we could do because he is running/walking awkwardly and still has pain.
After a long, confusing day in and out of doctor’s offices and hospitals, we finally got the X-ray we were expecting and dreading….his upper leg has something very strange in the bone marrow area.
The clinic doctor thought it looked like he had fractured his leg when he fell and it healed wrong. She made us an appointment with an Orthopedic doctor to see what his thoughts were for next steps.
This morning/afternoon (July 1st) I went to the Hospital in Ingenio with Allan David to see the Orthopedic Doctor and ask what he thought about the X-ray we had gotten taken of his leg.
As soon as the doctor saw the X-ray, he let us know it isn’t a fracture that had healed wrong…it’s a tumor.
We’re hoping to see a specialist as soon as possible as see how soon we can have it operated on. At this point we don’t know if it’s cancerous or not, but the doctor did tell me he thought it had been there for over a year. It doesn’t look too great. I’m just so glad he fell so that we could find this. If he hadn’t had an accident, this never would’ve been found.
Until we can check into this further, we are going to be praying ceaselessly.
Please pray for Allan and his family. They are distraught and worried for him since he is so small as it is. He is their love and joy.
I’m still just trying to process everything. I am trusting in the Lord but this is hard on my heart. Allan is so dear to me and I love him more than I can say.
