Stress Part 2


I feel much better today! I think this weekend just wore me out. Part of it was I had a sick husband on top of things. We also spent the day yesterday watching Haiti videos that we received on Sunday from on of the team members. See the Carribean really did wonders for me! LOL
Seriously. Nikolas has a mood ring and I put it on and it was completly black. After watching the Haiti videos it went to completey green. Which means calm. It was quite comical. Hard to imagine that a country torn up such as Haiti can make me feel so calm.


Thank you for all the wonderful verses!! I love them and it it is so good to be reminded that God is indeed in control ALL the time!! I love that because there are times I do not want to be in control and I can jus rest on His wings!!


I also had a very good friend, Tammy, remind of something in a book we are all reading or have read.


It is called the Heavenly man. It is a wonderful, powerful testimony of a man who they call Brother Yun. He was a leader in he house churches in China and has been persecuted many, many times for his faith. I reommend this book to everyone.


Anyways this is what Tammy reminded me of and will give me lots to think and pray about.


We were talking about the Heavenly Man book where Brother Yun is told that he needs to put Christ first, then his family, and THEN his ministry. I think that's a tough one for a lot of us. Ministries (or "programs") kind of take priority sometimes.


Thanks for that reminder, Tammy! I know I cannot do it all. I know I need to ask for help!


By the way, Tammy, what are you doing next Monday! LOL its time time set up the next kingdom cove rotation!!! :)


May you all have a blessed day!!
