Homeward Bound...God is GOOD!!! and SMC

Good evening ladies! Well, it's actually your afternoon ;)

Please pray for travelling mercies for me...I am heading home early...yeehaw! I finished up my meetings today so I am flying out tomorrow! I am so excited! It has been a long 8 days! And I am ready to run...literally...Jill if you read this get your shoes ready!!! seriously...

But I survived and I actually enjoyed most of it. You want to know how I survived? 'Cause Sunday came!

First confession...I am (was) WAY behind on my Bible Study homework. I don't know what happened. Normally I stay on top of it...but I didn't this time. Granted I do not think God wanted me to get behind in my homework but I do believe God gives you exactly what you need when you need it. In fact sometimes I think He re-writes the pages of Bible Study to custom fit my situation.

You don't agree? Check this...this is what was in my homework on Sunday the day after my meltdown of homesickness...I should have done this homework on week 5 (currently we are on week 7 but two weeks ago I was at home probably surrounded by family and friends)...

"Solitary places can be used by God or satan". ummm..what did you say Beth Moore? "Solitary places can be used by God or satan". And the question was "In the margin list a few ways we might know if our times of isolation are being used by God or the enemy". ahhhhhhhhhh

You see I truly believe this trip is the VERY first time I have ever been in complete isolation. I have never traveled out of the country by myself. On a different time zone to talk to anyone I love. In a place where my language is not the primary language. And everyone on the street nods but doesn't want to speak when you pass by.

On Sunday when I read that I could have gone outside and screamed...God is so GOOD. And so AWESOME. And so IN CONTROL. Even when we feel like things are out of control. Things are in God's CONTROL. His PERFECT CONTROL. And in isolation if we seek HIM with all our heart...He will meet us...right there in isolation.

So I made good use of Sunday...loving Jesus...and on Monday...I had one of the best days ever!

See y'all sooner than planned!

In Him,
Kristy =)

PS - My verse is...Ps 33:4 "For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does".

Greetings from across the pond!

Hey Y'all,
I am in denmark for my new job. It is going very well. I have seen a lot of amazing things and gotten enough rest and decent food to eat. I was really worried about the food...haha

I won't lie though...I miss home! The weekend has been hard. During the week you are so focused on work and learning and networking that the days go quickly...but the weekend has been kind of long. I am ready for Monday (thought I'd never say that!).

I have been able to find American tv shows to watch sporatically, but a lot of it is trash. So I listen to the voices and then move Yesterday I had a coworker tour me around Copenhagen but today I have explored on my own. This morning I walked to an old church. The service was starting but I was afraid to go in because 1) I would not know anything they were saying and 2) what if it was like a 4 hour service and I was in there not understanding anything with no way to sneak out! haha

Anyway, I decided to walk through the garden. It was a cemetary for family plots. It was unlike anything I have seen in America. Each one was manicured with a hedge around it with paths cut through it like you see in a movie. I took some pictures. I will share later.

Hope everyone has a great week...I am off to more Sunday School lesson time with Beth Moore =)

In Him,
Kristy =)

SMC - Nov 1, 2011

I finally chose. I narrowed the list to 9 and played innie, meanie, miney, mo =)

Seriously, I chose this scripture because it never hurts to remember to stay humble.
James 4:10 "Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. "

But then the blog crashed and I lost a long story and had to start over. So maybe I should have picked James 4:7 which was also on my list..."Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." Because satan needs to FLEE from my blog attempts! ha

Stay in His Word ladies...

In Him,
Kristy =)
