My heart is for the nations. All I can think about right now is loving people, ALL people, bringing the good news to people. I have a passion inside me. A passion that is itching to be spread. I cannot sit any longer. I cannot say enough how excited I am about outreach. I am radically hungry to see people set free. I am IN LOVE and I am ready to spread it. My thoughts are consumed with Jesus and it's such a great place to be. Since I have been here my continuous prayer has been for more love and passion. And when you ask, you will receive. Amen. All I want is to be in His presence. I am going to step into these countries BOLDLY. Knowing exactly who I am and why I am here. I will enter these countries in authority as a daughter of the King. I am claiming these lands for Him. In His name the enemy will flee. I'm ready to do His work. I feel like an overflowing cup... I have so much good stuff that needs to be poured out. I am lucky enough to actually get to GO in a week. I know that many of you would love to be in my position. I am blessed.
But more than me, I want so badly for people to grasp this joy and excitement for missions that we are meant to have. I want other people to be excited about it. It's what we're made for. Not only is my heart for the nations but God's heart is for the nations. We cannot claim to be a Christian and not see the constant theme of missions throughout the Bible. Missions is not just for the crazy ones, it's a calling for everyone. As I have mentioned before, my biggest fear when I return is complacency. In America it's so easy to forget what's going on in the world. It's easy to get wrapped up in my own life, to go through a day without thinking once about the orphans, the broken hearted, the hopeless, the ones who might never hear of our Savior.
We must quit living like pharisees who talk talk talk but never do anything. It's all fine and cute when we go to bible study and church but we actually should do something. We have to get out of our "gated" communities and start doing His work. Get out there. Let's get outside the box that religion so easily can put us in. It will be worth it. No, it won't be easy. We WILL suffer but this is the narrow road. Jesus suffered. He left an example for us to follow. Suffer for the sake of others. HOLD ON. It's hard but the world is in need.
