Here I go

I don’t do a lot of things right.

One thing I am sure of, is that I can’t love God wrong.

I don’t know if I forgot anything, I don’t know if there is a missing paper, or a snack.

I got my passport, my bible, my pillowcase my momma embroidered, clean underwear, and my water bottle. At this point what else do I need?

A tranquilizer would be nice. LOL.

I’m so nervous.

But this trip is all about love. It isn’t about tasks, it’s about love. And loving relationally instead of taskingly is hard for me. You might not believe it but I promise that to be true.

There was a lot going on this morning. Everyone is one the plane, the bags are hopefully on the plane too. LOL and arrive when we do.

I’m hoping that the tree that holds my fruit, grows deeper roots and expands to reach many.

I’m trying not to cry but to be honest, I just want to.

This is going to be wild, it’s going to be great, and it’s going to be full of Him.

Dear Jesus,

You know my heart, you know that all this preparation to get here was so that we could love you more, that we could spread your love further. Please let me not forget that, and if I do, let it be painful and let me repent quickly. Let it be painful like shoes too tight, but when I am with You, let it be like my favorite comfy cute shoes. God lead me so I can lead others. God let Your word speak so sweetly and strong to my heart that it radiates there, and then radiates onto others. Protect me from the plans of the enemy. Let me love bigger than ever before.

Jesus, I love You so much! I thank You for all that You’ve done in my life. Let my life be an offering to You.

And Jesus, please let there be Starbucks within close proximity to me when we land in Miami.

In jesus name I pray.


Here I go!!
