Here I go!

do you remember where you were the first time you heard a song?  I remember the first time I ever heard Savior King written by Hillsong, sung by the Alive Band.

I rarely can listen to it, sung at any time without getting misty.

A lot of people think that I'm an inspiration because I am going to Haiti.  I don't feel like an inspiration.  I feel like going to Haiti is an natural response to loving God. I feel like I never had any other choice, even though I said for so many years "if God calls me to an overseas mission trip, I'm hanging up" knowing that if He ever did, I would never say no. 

I don't believe that anything will happen to me while I am in Haiti (the Detroit Mission Trip would miss me!) but should something happen, know this...

                I wouldn't have changed a thing.
I love Jesus, and I find nothing in my life bigger or better than being called by Christ.  

I can't wait...

to kiss muffins
to serve Jesus
to serve the people I'm with
to play race cars
to blow bubbles
to kiss muffins
to laugh 
to giggle
to read my bible
to hear God's voice
to be uncomfortable
to kiss muffins
to teach Jesus 
to teach English
to hug
to kiss muffins

to love bigger and more than I ever thought possible.

May my heart always sing:
I'd give my life
To honor this
the love of Christ
The Savior King

2 Cor 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

And now the weak say I have strength
By the spirit of power that raised Christ from the dead
And now the poor stand and confess
That my portion is Him and I'm more than blessed

Let now our hearts burn with a flame
A fire consuming all for your Son's holy name
And with the heavens we declare
You are our king

We love you Lord, we worship you
You are our God, you alone are good

You asked your Son to carry this
The heavy cross our weight of sin

I love you Lord, I worship you
Hope which was lost, now stands renewed
I give my life to honor this
The love of Christ, the savior king

Let now your church shine as the bride
That you soar in your heart as you offered up your life
Let now the lost be welcomed home
By the saved and redeemed those adopted as your own

I give my life to honor this
The love of Christ, the savior king
