Tomorrow eight ladies from Naples, Florida, are going to San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on a mission trip, to share the love of Jesus. I am honored to be a part of this group.
We have been preparing for this event for several months. One of the things we are going to do is host a Women’s Conference, where I will be speaking.
It’s interesting … the very first night I knew of the conference, God gave me a message for the ladies, Hope is Rising. And then nothing else. I have prayed and fasted for 30 days, I have sought God on what he wants me to share. I have woken up so many nights at 3:00 am, with thoughts in my head of the message he wants to bring.
I have the main scripture, the story of the four lepers outside the wall of the Samaria. It was a time of hopelessness, but God turned things around and brought hope to his people.
That is the message I want to bring to the women of Honduras, we can be in a time of hopelessness, it may look like there is no where to turn. But if we will look up, to God, he will bring his light of Hope into our lives.
I am excited today. I know God has big plans for our team and I am in awe how he has worked all things for the good of each one of us.
Today, before the adventure begins, I just want to say how grateful I am to God for bringing this opportunity into my path. I didn’t have to go find it, it came to me. I so love when that happens. God is preparing hearts even as I am writing this.
We will see many new things in the next few days, some will make us sad, some will make us very happy, but I pray that through it all we will lift high the name of Jesus, he will be honored and glorified and that Hope will rise wherever we go.
Father, thank you for allowing us to be your hands, feet and voice. I am overwhelmed by your presence today and the knowledge that this is your plan and purpose for our lives. Go before us Lord and light our path. In Jesus Name. Amen
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:28-31)
