Am I enough? Part two….

I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love in response to my blog yesterday. Overwhelmed but not surprised.  However, I hope I don’t have everyone too freaked out…I need to assure you that I am doing well…because of the Lord! Choosing to not live in the flesh but in the Spirit makes all the difference.

I hadn’t blogged in quite some time because I feared this would come across depressing and yet it was where the Lord kept taking me, where He has been at work. Life is much more raw here…it may be that way on any international mission field, I am only familiar with Haiti.  I /we asked for…prayed for an opportunity like this, to make us fully dependent on the Lord.

We got what we asked for because I believe it’s what he wants for us all but for us, life in the states allowed us to fill ourselves with so many other things, to remain self-sufficient… we can’t do that here.

Although there are difficult moments, I am learning to live filled with His joy, His peace, His comfort…I am drawing on the fruits of His Spirit more than ever before and it is an incredible ride.  It’s been His plan for us all along.  I really am celebrating His work in each of us.  He does ask everything but He gives Himself fully to us as He continues this sanctification process.

May God be glorified in each step we take as we move closer to Him.  We continue to be grateful for everyone who has joined us in support through prayer and finances. This is your journey too as we know He is stretching you as well!!

    Dear Dave and Sharron,

    Thank you so much for your honesty and transparency. How beautiful that you are able to put in words the struggles of your heart. Missions is a call from the Lord. We follow in obedience, … and feel the loss of so many people and things. We say we counted the cost before we came and yet we didn’t know all the cost nor how deep the hurt and struggle would be. Thank you for being willing to follow Him, to serve Him with all your heart, skill, and talent – laying it all on the altar of sacrifice for Him. He sees your sacrifice of love for Him. He feels your loss. He loves you. He walks with you on your journey.

    There are so many going through so much. I’ve decided to read 1 Peter through every day for a month or so. It has truly blessed me and answered some deep heart questions I’ve been having.

    Our love and prayers are with you.

    George
