“The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.”
(my new coffee/tea mug, from Anthropologie ! I love it!)
I am preparing for my first mission trip next month! It’s July 2-9, in Eleuthera, Bahamas. I am currently waiting for my passport, fingers crossed!
I found a little devotional study to do daily before I go. This verse is about renewing your Spirit. I so needed to read this, there’s a reason they prepared the material in the order they did. I decided I would keep a journal about it all too, but I will only spare you on Monday’s or when the mood strikes me J
I am usually a very quiet, private person when it comes to my faith. I will explain why…I am going to open my self and expose my heart.
Preparing for a mission trip to Eleuthera. I’ve always wanted to go and this year I am able to go! I’m going alone, meaning without hubby. I’m going with 20 or so other people from church. We are going to be working on a health clinic. I’m very excited to see what God has in store for me, but also extremely nervous. I feel like I will be the ‘weakest link’. I feel like I don’t have the right words to say and I get really fumblely and my face turns bright red. I pray that God can work in me and through me, giving me the right words to say when needed.
“Lord, I am broken and I know you will not reject me. Please make me clean and renew the loyal spirit in me. I know all that I do is for you, so continue teaching me your ways everyday.” ~Amen
