Walking with Jesus


Today is the day I've dreamed of forever.

It's the day that God called me to so very long ago.

It's the day that I step out of the boat.

It's the day I walk with Jesus to where He has called me.

It's an emotional day.

It's bittersweet, leaving and saying goodbye to all of my little brothers and sisters and family.

It's a day where I embark on the greatest adventure of my life.

Tonight I board the plane bound for where my heart calls home.

Today I move to Africa.

Please be praying for peace, for comfort, for safety, for the planes and that the flights will be smooth.

It's January 6th, 2013

A day I will always remember..

Been thinking about you all day - prayers are with you and other travelers - such an exciting beginning, but prayers are there through good and bad, joyous and difficult times. Blessings.

The LORD your God is with Emma,
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in Emma,
He will quiet Emma with His love,
He will rejoice over Emma with singing. Zep. 3:17
Praying for you as you grieve being way from your family, adjust to the changes, and rejoice in your new life that the LORD has called you to. As you already know, depend on Him in and for all things and He will never fail you. Much love and blessings,
Rosemary
1 Chronicles 28:20
