Happy Resurrection Day!

Happy Resurrection Day, everyone! May the God of peace and truth bless you on this day!

If there is one joy on this day (besides Cadbury cream eggs^^) it would be this:
Jesus loves me.
And he loves you, too!

In a world of challenges, disappointments, and mistakes, there is nothing like an affirmation of love - love that will not fail. Ever.

Mission Trip and Conference (2)

Spring UBF Conference
University Bible Fellowship's Easter Conference - He is Risen, indeed!

4/6/07 - Rivers and Valleys Collapse )

4/7/07 (morning) - The death of the Messiah Collapse )

4/7/07 (afternoon)- Fellowship and egg cracking games Collapse )

4/7/07 (evening) - Brothers and sisters Collapse )

4/8/07 (morning)- The quiet love of Christ at breakfast on the shore Collapse )

My favorite part of the conference was praise and worship time. We sang songs like "Mighty to Save," "Because He Lives" and "My Redeemer Lives." How good it feels to say those words, and better yet - to sing them!

"Though my flesh it be destroyed
Yet with my eyes I will see God
For I know that my Redeemer lives
And I will stand with him on that day"

He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save"

I have found that before seeking to go out and do much work or do such things as staying up all night in prayer, I need to remove the plank from my eye. I need to rid myself of selfish desires and focus my heart fully on God. I need to ground myself in the rock, wait patiently on the rock of Salvation. With a quiet life, I want to wait on my God. I want to grow to be a woman of faith - faith that is gentle and immovable. Faith that leads me to learn to pray without ceasing, to love the brethren, to seek out my God early in the morning.

This is training time.

And while I don't know what the training is for, the element of surprise is what gives it its excitement! I can trust in God to lead me to that which is best for me. He knows. And He is working.
