“You are better off in deep water with Jesus, than in shallow water where you can stand on your own without him.”
Tomorrow, I walk into deep waters. Tomorrow I walk into unknown territory. Tomorrow i walk into a wild ride, and I couldn’t be more thankful.
I leave for Haiti early tomorrow morning, and will be back in a few weeks. There truly are no words to express how excited, thankful, and overwhelmed I am with the goodness and direction God has given me.
It will cost me something. Comfort, my first few weeks of summer, convenience, money, maybe even health…. the list goes on. It will cost a submissive spirit and obedience to the voice of the Lord.
I will ask that you please be praying for me as I step into this journey. Deep waters aren’t easy. But they are worth it. Please pray for protection, wisdom, and ultimately that God would guide every step I take. I’m ready to walk into the unknown. I’m ready to let God go before me. I’m ready to put myself aside and watch Him take full control. I’m ready for signs, wonders, and miracles. There’s a holy discontentment deep within me, and I’m ready. And if it costs me everything, comfort and approval and control and easy…even just for a little while… it’s worth it. It’s a cost I’m willing to take. A sacrifice I’m willing to make. It’s worth it.
I will have my computer and be blogging regularly about my time there. Make sure to follow me on here as well as twitter and instagram (elizannking) to catch all that God is doing!
Haiti or bust baby!!
