thanksgiving

happy thanksgiving!

it’s been 86 days since i was in michigan and i have 48 days left in guatemala. thanksgiving looks different today. as I reflect upon this year, especially the days i’ve had in DTS, my heart is full! i’m thankful for my friends and family who support me in prayer and financially! my whole DTS team left on outreach with 100% support – that hardly happens. i am thankful for the opportunity to minister to the people of guatemala; it’s an honor to represent Jesus here. i am thankful that God loves me no matter what – i haven’t done life everyday the best i could, but that doesn’t matter. each night when i go to bed i know God delights in me and is proud of me. that’s good stuff! this season has not been what i expected it to be, but God is so good and He’s used everyday to prepare me for the next. So here i am, laying on my bunk bed in antigua, full from my guatemalan lunch, surrounded by my ywamily (ywam family), basking in God’s goodness! not the thanksgiving i anticipated but just the thanksgiving i needed.

i will give to the LORD the thanks due to his righteousness, and i will sing praise to the name of the LORD, the Most High. {psalm 7:17}
