I. Am. That is all.

When God appears to Moses He calls Himself "I Am". He told Moses not to be afraid to tell the Pharoh to release the people but to simply tell them that "I Am" told him to do so. I never really understood that. I mean think about it. Did God just forget to finish His sentence? So I thought about all the diferent things that could possibly fill in that blank...
Love
Kind
Just
King of Kings
God
Lord
Above all
Powerful
Always there
Creator
Divine
True
Loyal
Never changing
With you
All knowing
The Good Shepherd
Life
Light
Your rescue
Father
Mighty
Everlasting
Peace
Comforting
Jealous for you
Majestic
Holy
Alive
Steadfast
Joy
Patient
Good
Gentle
Yaweh
Jehovah
Strong
AND SO MUCH MORE THAN WE COULD EVER IMAGINE!
So if I were to explain God to someone... It would be impossible! Because I don't even understand Him for He is so much greater than anything I could form into words. Anything I try to say is just insufficient all I know is that... He simply is. He is I am. All I can say is that He is and I can tell you bits and pieces of the miniscule segment of Him that I know about but truly all that I know is that He is. But that is all I need. Becasue since He is I can face tomorrow. Because He is all fear is gone. Becasue I know, I know He holds that future and life is worth the living just because HE IS.

Destination... INDIA!

As the title says it is official... I am going to India on a mission trip this summer!!! I will be there from the 7th of July to the 2nd of August. I will be going through Global Expeditions (the group I went to Panama with). We will be working with the kids there and also be doing skits in the streets! I am so so so so SO very excited! Please be praying for the team that I will be on that we would work together well and be lifelong friends. Also be praying for the people that we will see, talk to, and pray over.

While I am SUPER PUMPED about my own trip I know that many of my other friends will also be scattered around the world this summer and would love your prayers also. So please pray for the countries that they will be serving in this summer. (If I missed you just comment with where you are going.)
