Uganda Yard Sale…A Chance to Love

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.” -Psalm 37:4-6

What? HUGE Yard Sale!!

When? This Saturday, April 1st beginning at 7:30 am

Where? Manly Street……Dalton, GA

Why? To raise funds for Uganda!!

I know God is going to provide in a HUGE way this Saturday! Thank you to all who have donated items already. If you still have anything you would like to donate, I would love to come pick it up. You can comment below if you have anything.

Now, I am asking all of you who read this to join me in prayer this week. Pray that God shows up in a big way Saturday. Help me pray that He would send people in droves and that we would have NOTHING left at the end of the day. Most importantly, help me pray that God would use me, and the rest of the awesome people helping out Saturday, for His glory. I am praying that God would “open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ” (Colossians 4:3). Because, yes, I am having this yard sale to help me get to Uganda, but I am not going to Uganda for me. I am not going to Uganda for the orphan. I am not going to Uganda for the broken. I am going to Uganda for God.

God has given me the responsibility blessed me with the opportunity to be His hands and feet. To make His love known world-wide. So when He places before me an opportunity to love, I will follow Him whether it be in Georgia, Tennessee, Nicaragua, Africa, or Antarctica. So really, Saturday is simply another opportunity to love, any funds raised are just a bonus.


It’s not about me

This past Saturday I had a date with this guy…

And he took me here…

And then this happened…

And he gave me this…

And let me tell you, I am so stinkin’ excited I can barely contain it sometimes! I will get to say I do to him on September 24, 2011. Blessed does not seem like an adequate word to describe how I feel.
“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinithians 10:31
But no matter what, Christ is our first love. Our relationship is not about us. I don’t ever want it to be. I love my fiancé and am so excited to spend the rest of my life with him. Yet, it cannot be about us and our happiness, but about us finding our joy and strength in the Father. It’s got to be about us running after Him. About us pouring our hearts at His feet and responding with obedience when He calls. It’s got to be about us committing to each other by first committing to seek God.

Watch out. God called us to marriage for a reason, and he’s got something so HUGE planned that we’re going to rock this world.
