Just as a person’s body that does not have a spirit is dead, so faith that does nothing is dead.”
You gave m the gift and the desires to be a nurse-midwife. Help me to have the faith to follow You where ever You lead me to be a nurse-midwife; here in the U.S. or in Africa. I will follow Your will. You’ve also given me a heart for Children, teens, and orphan’s. Help me to reach a new generation for You. Help me to put away the “what ifs” to follow you.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and future.”
“I want to trust your plan for me God. I don’t want to do it my way anymore. I want to follow where You lead. I am at where I’m at now because of Your plan. Where I am now is part of Your plan; because I never thought I would be twenty four and still not be done with college. But even this has happened for a reason. I am trusting Your plan for me to finish nursing school. I am also trusting Your plan and will for my future spouse and when he comes into my life, is Your timing. I trust You lord. You are my King and my Heavenly Father.”
We cannot do it on our own. We have to have help, and the best help comes from God and Jesus.

Trust in the Lord and do good, dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart?
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love O Lord, endures forever-do not abandon the works of your hands
Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised
Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires.
Song of Songs 2:7b
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm, you plans to give you a hope and a future.”
I say to Myself, “The Lord is my portion, therefore I will wait for him”
I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
I can do everything through Him who gives me strength

Today the middle school students and high school students at Church leave for camp. It’s a chance for them to grow closer to God without all the distractions of modern life. I pray also that those teens you don’t know Christ will be drawn to Him at camp. I guess you could say that I have a heart for teens. Part of the reason is because; it wasn’t that long ago since I was a teen, plus I became a Christian as teen at the end of my freshman year of high school. So I know how important that time away from it all at camp with other believers can be for your soul and your spiritual growth. So I pray for the youth and the workers that they have a good time that they stay safe. That it is also a time of growth and learning.
The news of them going to camp brought back all the good memories that I have from camp. I had a blast every time that I went. I enjoyed the fellowship and growth that happened, and now a new generantion gets a chance to experience that.
