My Friend

My friend is in Uganda. As we sleep, she will be knocking on the hearts of Ugandan leaders to bring home two new babies. God can move mountains - he will bring these babies home with their jubilant mother and happy siblings to the arms of their waiting daddy.

A whole church is waiting for them! A whole internet community is praying for them. Personally, I can't wait to welcome these children to their new church home!

I am so amazed by my friend's capacity to love.

I am amazed by many of my friends lately.

To walk in faith when the paycheck is gone. To move their family to follow God's call. To love children who are birthed from their heart if not their body. Friends who live by their convictions when their own families do not understand those inclinations. Friends who stand for Christ and often stand alone in their homes and places of work.

They have expanded their territories. They have followed God's heart.

God, where is your heart leading me? Leading our family? Will we have the courage to follow? What is our next adventure? What do you have for us? We will follow.

  1. I know you will have the courage, because you give me courage. I know you will have strength, because you give me strength. I know you will follow, because you have led so well.
