Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus;
A month has come and gone in my life since I left for Uganda in March. So much to understand and so much to allow God to do. I believe that had I come a year ago that my ministry would have been thwarted by my own ideas. O those ideas still exist but daily I am learning to crucify self for the sake of the cross.
just to take him at his word.
I have been given many opportunities to study God’s word. From the teachings at the services to the bible studies some impromtu, some scheduled. I am frequently reminded of our calling as Christ’s Ambassadors. So what better way than to invite students into my home.
Just to lean upon His promise
I am also told he will not expect more of us than we can accomplish. So when I was assigned to teach a course I had never taught I trusted God and began to prepare. But my skills were really challenged. So I trusted in God to provide me with what I needed and I was assigned a different course. Not only that but thanks to help from friends in the States I have the materials to teach the course.
Just to say thus says the Lord.
But Lord I cried this is tent making when will I be able to go out in your name? Now I am preparing to go on a mission outreach with members of the Ugandan Anglican Youth Fellowship. So he has brought me here and begun to equip me for service. May I go out in his strength and not my own. May I truly be Christ’s Ambassador. And may I trust in Jesus.
Jesus Jesus How I trust Him
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus precious Jesus
O for grace to trust Him More.
