Chapter 28: Following Christ

“Then He said to them all, ” If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”

Luke 9:23

Wow!  Very clearly Christ has invited all of us to serve Him unconditionally.  The number one problem in this world is this:  we are self-centered.  All major issues are driven by selfishness.  Jesus! Fill our hearts, be our desire!  Come Lord Jesus, come!

This last month has been crazy!  Can you believe that we have 8 days left in the month…November is around the corner.  I have already started hearing Christmas music, which can mean one thing.

The year is drawing to a close.

But it’s not over yet!

God is moving in our lives and I cannot wait to see where He takes us.  It is exciting to think about what a limitless God can do when we fully surrender our lives to Him.  I know that He is asking Michelle and I to dream big and trust Him.

God has not yet released us from Poland.  God wants me to work with the coffee community here in Krakow.  God wants Michelle to trust Him with her voice(worship/music).  These are three truths I can say without hesitation or question!  Praise God!  I feel like a child holding my father’s hand.  He is leading us forward, to uncharted territory.  But!  As I look up to His face, I see a captivating smile.  The kind that is expressed with such joy that even the eyes give away the excitement, love and care!  We may not see what lies ahead…but we know that it is wondrous!

I want to take a minute to encourage you.  God reveals truth in our lives and we must pay attention.  Sometimes it is a simple whisper to talk to someone we don’t know.  Often God has given us talents that He wants us to use for His glory.  Maybe he wants you to do mission work over seas?!  Regardless of what God has spoken to you, listen to Him.  God would not ask something of you if He did not have a plan!  God’s will is God’s bill, we are here to serve Him so let us live lives that reflect this!!

Will you take a moment to say a prayer for my family?

-To boldly follow God’s leading

-For wisdom and discernment

-To continue building relationships with our friends here in Poland, and our ability to share Jesus with them!

Will you continue to pray for our friends who recently lost their father?  Not just for strength and wisdom, but also perseverance as they continue to adjust to life after loss.

Pray for our friend?  She is seeking God’s direction in her life, she also has a family member that will soon pass away.  Such a trying time to have pain in the midst of trial.  May God grant her peace!

Praise God!

-The Adams family had a wonderful Gospel Event!  Many are seeking Christ in new ways through the choirs and their concerts!

-For peace in this time of transition.

May God bless you and keep you.  May He be the source of Peace, Comfort, and Joy in your life.  May you seek Him wholly.  Take up your cross, and follow Him.
