Amazed with my God

March 13, 2013 at 6:53 pm (My ramblings) (, )

I’m sitting here writing thank you notes to people who have made generous donations towards my mission trip to Africa. I’m absolutely amazed to see God at work through this entire process. Raising funds for a mission trip can seem like a daunting task but every trip I’ve gone on, God has not only met my financial needs through donations, He has surpassed it. I can honestly say that I used to freak out at the thought of having to raise funds but The Lord has so graciously increased my faith in this area. It truly amazes me that people give of their hard earned money for me to be able to go into the world and share the Gospel.
I’m so glad that God not only calls people to go, He also calls us to send. I talk to so many people who think it’s a higher call to go overseas and I just want to make it clear that without financial and prayer support, I could never do what the Lord has called me to do! Whether you are called to be a missionary or called to financially support one or be a prayer warrior, YOU are fulfilling the great commission! Together, we are reaching people for Christ.
I think Chris Tomlin puts into words what is in my heart right now in his song, Indescribable.

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation’s revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings
All exclaiming

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gives source to it’s light
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
You are amazing God

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
Incomparable, unchangeable
You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same
You are amazing God
You are amazing God
