Brasil Trip- The Week Prior. 4.22.08

Romans 8.15-17

For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the spirit of sonship, and by Him we cry “Abba, Father.”  The Spirit himself testifies with God’s spirit that we are God’s children.  Now if we are children, then we are heirs- heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his suffering in order that we may also share in His glory.


-we suffer, we share in His glory.

-we are heirs and co-heirs with Christ.

-we received a spirit of sonship that does not make us a slave again to fear: or insecurity, or hopelessness, not afraid of no direction with my community breaking up this week.  I wish to embrace the truth of who God is in this, and my struggle at work lately.  With being picked, and asked to improve every stinking small mistake I’ve ever made in the last 4 months. Everything is totally scrutinized.  A higher standard is required.  My work is no longer kosher, my steps are traced, then retraced, then buried. Peeling back the layers… I have to make sure I’m spotless from the start and maybe help more cleaning up at the end.  I’ve just wondered, I’ve prayed for God to open and close doors and if ever it appeared He was closing the door it would look like this and I don’t get it.  I don’t understand.  I will work to push through, but pray that God open other doors soon, if indeed this one is being closed. 

Lord Almighty, I praise you for three good years of accountability.  I thank you for my job and love you.  I need your guidance and direction, your peace to calm my heart, and I hope on this mission you will take moe on a trip and show me a vision of where you’re leading me in this season.

-open and close doors.

-guidance and direction.

-give me eyes to see and ears to hear.

-I love you and I commit my life to following you in joy, hope and obedience.

– Open the Spirit to help me in this endeavor.
