coming to a close

it's crazy to think how quickly time is passing. yet another year is ending and my time here in Colombia with it. i have learned so much while being here. mainly in my personal walk with the Lord. He has reminded me again and again that our ministry is only as strong as our walk with Him, and our walk with Him only as strong as our personal prayer life.
i've been doing a lot of soul searching trying to be sure that i'm where i need to be. longing to finish well. in doing that i've been reminded of His power and faithfulness. knowing the work is His and He will take care of it. mine is only to be obedient with what is given to me. there's such solace in that truth and in knowing that He can be trusted. i know these sound like such fundamental things, but i needed to be reminded of them. needed to be still and know that He is God. that He will be exalted among the nations. that His word does not return to Him void, but accomplishes that for which it is intended. and that He works all things for the good of those who love Him, to those who are called according to His purpose.
what an honor and adventure to know and serve the Most High!
