Faithfully freaking out and anxiously trusting...

My faith is being stretched, tested, and otherwise challenged quite a bit right now with support raising. I've been doing all I can, but of course, all I can do is never enough. I still have around 40% to go, which is pretty daunting at this point, since it has to be in before I leave in 2 weeks. Being done well before then would be great, too.

I have some friends coming into town for a couple of days this weekend and it would be amazing to be able to hang out with them without worry, distraction, guilt, or more calls to make. And to have some time that is peaceful (rather than frantic) to rest, spend time with people, pack, and prepare before flying out on the 13th. Those are not things that I absolutely need, just things I want. In the end, the Lord my God knows best and I will trust Him.

Please pray that I would be diligent in my efforts and wise with my time, that God would grant me perseverence and unnatural faith as I wait for Him to provide, and that He would provide miraculously and quickly.

I've been praying like a maniac that you would be done by this weekend. I love you. I know that God has this in His hands. He is faithful to provide... even though it feels hard. I was reminded in a new way today how much He knows our hearts and our needs. Sounds obvious, but I forget it often...

I'm praying for you too. Love to catch up sometime.

What a great title - if I ever write an autobiography I may have to wrestle the rights for that one from you...

praying for you this a.m. be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord. He'll lead you to the rock that is higher than you. (psalms 31 & 91)

I am definitely praying for you! I miss you! Praying for provision and comfort to be found in the Lord (perhaps via sexy comfy hooded sweatshirts, and an energetic BUST!) Go Wisconsin!

Alexis said...

Wow, Ashley, the combination of the words 'sexy' and 'BUST' may cause readers to misinterpret...

To everyone else: it doesn't mean what you think it does.

At any rate, I'll gladly add three cheers to your "Go Wisconsin!"

Our whole team prayed for you this morning. And you continue to occupy the prime real estate on our fridge.
So consider your South side covered by your pals here in Venezuela....get it, that's a 'we live in South America' joke. I just made it up, so if it's not funny blame it on Bryon
