Don't Worry!

Hello there. I have some pictures of me and Jorge giving Esteban his medicine and I was going to get Brandi to put them on here but we never seem to be in the right place together at the right time to get that done. So I wanted to go ahead and make it known that God totally opened the door here for us to be able to get his medicine without a "prescription-a really loose term here" and get him two months supply of the medicine. He was grinning from ear to ear in the photo when we walked to his house and gave him his medicine. I have to go tomorrow to check on him b/c he didnt come to the meeting Mon. so I don't know if he is better.
But God is soo good to me. He has opened my eyes to how much I am concerned about...Jesus calls it worry in Luke 12. I have been preaching about worrying ever since God spoke to me about it. But I feel soo at peace knowing that God already knows our needs and will provide for them (Matt. 6:8). I need to seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and then all the other things will come to be (Luke 12:31). It is hilarious in Luke 12 when Jesus said that if you can't do such a little insignificant thing like ADD ANOTHER HOUR TO YOUR LIFE!!! then why worry about the other things...God will take care of them. But that is how big our God is...he talked about adding time or years to our lives as if it was a tiny little effortless thing to do and NO BODY can do it here!! HA! God is big and powerful and he has my life in his hands and my needs on his mind. You know it gets really hard and difficult being away more times than others and we start really missing our families and friends. It feels like we are missing out...but we are not missing out b/c this is where God has put us and he is doing WONDERFUL things here and we are getting to see these things and experience them. So we are thankful but have to be reminded to keep focused and pray. I also read today in Luke 18 where Jesus told two parables about how important it is for us to be persistent in our prayers! So we have to keep exercising our prayer life here. But thank you for yall's prayers! We need them and feel them too! Thank you. So here we are and there you go. God bless!

  1. Man! I am still praying and seeking everyday to have deliverance from worry - and control. Which I guess they really go hand in hand because if you felt like you had control you wouldn't worry. Anyway...that is sooo awesome about the medication. I prayed for you guys this week with that. Will he be able to get it after two months again?

  2. You know, I wondered about the feelings of "missing out". I know I would soooooo feel that way! We miss you guys so bad and you know it doesn't feel complete without you all here!!!! So we are "missing out" too:) Missing out on YOU! HA! That ryhmed:)

    We always talk about you all when we get together when something reminds us of one of you and mom cleaned up the nursery room some and decorated a little more and she hung up Levi's and Mary Kathleen's paintings with their names and Bible verse on them since they can't be there right now to play in the room:) So sweet!:)
