What a whirlwind of a week…momentous, fragile, eyes opened…grateful this week for God’s presence and that when we seek Him, we shall find Him. He is near to the brokenhearted, binding up their wounds. He holds us in the palm of His hand and we can trust Him.
Another year & the beauty of being pruned…
This Monday I turned 27…reflecting on this last year and all that 26 brought is overwhelming, amazing, and downright humbling. I never expected all that this year brought. God stripped me, refined me, and showed me how deeply I really need Him. For my birthday, Ema, Debi and I went to Varaždin, a city about one hour away from Zagreb, shaped by destruction through the ages. It’s a beautiful city; of course with a castle because…Europe. We got coffee, explored, had ruby chocolate…it’s fun exploring with them. After having lunch together I went to get my nails done. I had some really interesting spiritual conversations with the girls there and am hoping to go back to hopefully have gospel conversations at some point. I’m asking God to keep my eyes open and be bold and faithful to walk through the doors He’s opening.
Josiah Venture Prayer Room
Thankful for this gift, resource, and tool. Grateful to spend time with Jesus in this way and pray for His movement in this part of the world. What a good gift… If you’d like to pray in the prayer room, you can go here.
Struja & Rising Leaders
Thankful for this new junior high group, the people He’s bringing and the people He’s raising up. If you’re wondering about the second photo…Ema had a genius idea for the game-“Grandma made alphabet soup and you have to write her a message using the letters.”
Ćinkica, good conversations & open doors
Thankful to live right by this little spot, early mornings here & the sunshine coming in. You just can’t beat a croissant and bjela kava for only 11kn (about $1.50). This current season and the season up ahead seems to be one of refining in the fire, not knowing what the next day will bring and depending on Jesus for His leading. The realities of this past year have hit me more this week than expected but I’m grateful that I don’t walk alone, I’m not abandoned and He is with me through the wind and the waves.
