9 DAYS LEFT BEFORE WE LEAVE FOR AFRICA!!
PSALM FOR THE DAY:
2 Great are the works of the LORD;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds,
and his righteousness endures forever.
4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered;
the LORD is gracious and compassionate.
5 He provides food for those who fear him;
he remembers his covenant forever.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works,
giving them the lands of other nations.
7 The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy.
8 They are established for ever and ever,
enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
9 He provided redemption for his people;
he ordained his covenant forever—
holy and awesome is his name.
(God made a world that is amazing and big and full of wonders for us to see. We live in a country where we are free and fortunate and able to make choices, good or bad, for ourselves and make our own path. Whether you choose to start your own business, move to another state to start over, have 20 kids like the Duggars, drop out of school to become a rapper, be a mother, a writer, a lawyer, run for president or just a marathon, be on a reality tv show, or travel to another country to spread the love of God- it is your choice and the possibilities are endless. Life is short. We all deserve to be happy and to push ourselves to experience the beauty God has put right here in front of us. RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR FACE! You don't have to travel to Africa to see it, God is everywhere, and I can't wait to continue my journey.)
SONG OF THE DAY:
Love and Theft- "World Wide Open"
I need to move, I need to breathe
Shake the things that pull on me
Holding me down, slowing me down
I need to run, I need to fight
Let go of the things that I am holding onto
Maybe I need to
Just open up my eyes so I can see
It's always been there right in front of me
