I AM CLEARING UP THIS WHOLE QUESTION ABOUT WHAT A FOX SAYS.
Sounds like a woman screaming for help

I’m finally finding some time to get my much needed REST, after a series of events in June which came like bullets out of a machine gun. So glad that youth camp has finally wrapped up and months of slaving for the games have finally ended!
On a general post-missions update - after being back for 6 months:
1-2 month: PMS (post missions syndrome), struggling to adapt, having happy/sad feelings, wondering what to do in life
3-4 month: figured out what to do, tried to trust God that all is well, learning to cope and follow my calling for this season
5-6 month: felt like the rate of spritiual growth was slowing down, settled with being “okay” with things - “spiritually ok” “coping ok” “life is ok” and feeling like i was giving out faster than i was receiving.
I’m really glad to be doing what I’m doing and working with young people and I’m learning to be effective in that. While I was reading the youth camp testimonies of my region, I was encouraged that all the hard work of planning camp was worth it because these young people received their breakthrough. Then I asked myself: Where’s mine? Where’s my breakthrough, God? What’s my testimony?
I felt blank for awhile and just settled with being “ok” that I’m a leader, I’m there to serve and not expect to be served. I left it at that, but God didn’t and I’m really glad He didnt!!
Out of nowhere, today He started to shift my heart & mind and really opened my eyes to a new revelation that it was NEVER about me sacrificing and giving up the things I love for him. It was spot on, because deep down I always told myself - it’s okay.. it’s worth it to give up my studies to serve God because I love Him. Because I love Him. But then boomz today came this: “This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. 1 John 4:10” Instead of being jaded and tired that I’m sacrificing so much, I needed to turn my eyes away from me and to God and see that I need HIS love to love Him and love people! Nothing that I give up can be compared to what God did for me. And it’s not a sacrifice, it’s a treasure that I’m investing into :)
And with that, July I welcome you with open arms.
"The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever." -Isaiah 32:17 (NIV)
Learning to cultivate a confidence that will be anchored in God, and trusting that if He has brought me to it, He will bring me through it - with victory!
We took him to a special meal at Chef Mickey’s restaurant so he could meet all of his favorite Disney Characters.
My favourite tumblr. This is HILARIOUS.
Sometimes I feel like I am walking around like this:
So I am like, God, please fix this for me!
And when it doesn’t happen as fast as I want, I feel like this:
And then I think, God has control. God has control.
And then it turns out His plan is way better than mine was and I’m like:
He always has the best plan. Always :*)
I’ll probably do this if a lizard touches me too
