Psalm 118

I am so tired as I write this, because today was a crazy busy day.  However, I want to tell y'all how amazing the Lord is while everything is still fresh in my mind.

So as you read in one of my recent posts, I have a few things I want and need for my little home. Yesterday I spent the day with one of my favorite couples here, the Wolfs. Dave is a missionary pilot and Olivia does ministry in all sorts of places here in the city with the International Women's Group, with her neighbors, and at school. She is full of energy and has been a wonderful mentor to me since I arrived here in August (8 months ago, can you believe it?). 

Anyways, yesterday Olivia and I were about to leave for Amanda's bridal shower, but we prayed together beforehand. She asked me to write down three things that I wanted her to pray for, and the third thing was that I would trust the Lord's provision for enough money to come home in the summer and get what I need for the house. So we prayed.

Not even an hour later, we were at Amanda's shower chatting and enjoying the fellowship, when a fellow missionary friend, Diane, says to Olivia, "We need to start praying about where I can store my stuff." You see, Diane is taking a mini-furlough to the States soon and will be gone for at least six months. And Olivia was like, "Uh, I think Jess could use some of your stuff!" So Diane was like, "I'm leaving and you can take care of my things and use them! Make me a list!" So I sent her a list this morning and she has lots of things I can use...which will save me hundreds of dollars

Psalm 118:1-14
 1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
      His faithful love endures forever.
 2 Let all Israel repeat:
      “His faithful love endures forever.”
 3 Let Aaron’s descendants, the priests, repeat:
      “His faithful love endures forever.”
 4 Let all who fear the Lord repeat:
      “His faithful love endures forever.”

As if that isn't enough, Olivia also asked me to pray about leading the high school girls' Bible study next year. To which I emphatically said "YES!" 

And then today Olivia's neighbor Jessica, who is the sweetest fifteen year old, accepted Christ! One of the girls from school was with her and asked if she would like to come to the girls' Bible study, and she said yes. 

Our God is so good! 

I am just so overwhelmed by the greatness of our God. Who could fathom His amazing ways? He is too good to me...He is so gracious with us and worthy of all our praise at all times.
