Because of Christ

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Isaiah 6:8

This is my prayer. "Here am I God! I am a sinner. Imperfect. Fearful. Selfish. I am not powerful. I am not rich. I am not strong. I am in need of You."

And Jesus answers. "I am Your God. I rescued you from your sin. I AM. I am perfect. I am over all. I gave my life for you. I am powerful. I am king over all. I am strong. I love you. I see you as my daughter. I deserve all glory. Go and tell the world of this great love that I have."

This makes my heart rejoice! It is nothing I bring to the table. It is all Christ! It is all His grace and love in my life. I am nothing, BUT GOD! Ephesians 2. 

So here I go, not in my own strength but in Christ's strength. I pray that this blog wouldn't be about me, but about lifting up Christ's glorious name and that the stories I share here would bring Him glory. That we would marvel at His love and beauty. 

This time next week I will be in Bolivia. In the mountains with 80+ orphans. And God will be at work. Because what He has started, He will finish. I know this because He promised. And God is faithful. Praise His HOLY name!
