Today my blogpost will be about something very dear to my heart. Something that gives me the chills when talking about it and want me to use my all-time gift from God and that is my voice for the one whose voice have been robbed from them. I am talking about Human trafficking.
I turn around and look at my environment and think by myself I am so blessed. God has truly blessed me with my husband, food, a roof above my head, a shower, a job, you name it! All of this makes me want to do so much more for others. I do this with a group of church members.
Street Team Amsterdam
I am involved in the Social Justice Team. Every other Saturday I am helping elderly and disabled people in Amsterdam. In the beginning when we started they we’re afraid to open up the door and I don’t blame them with all this violence these days. Now they are eagerly waiting for us to come and want to talk to us.
” I have found the one who my soul loves” Song of Solomon 3:4
September 12 2016 was our first anniversary!!
No big bang party 😄 just enjoying each other in Sicily. I thank God for the fact that he has brought my husband (Vince) and I together before our first anniversary. We have prayed for that for a while, but first let me give you a short version of our love story.
It is like that song “come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away” …
Looking outside and watching the clouds it’s constantly amaze me how the Lord has created the world in a wonderful way. Truly everything has been beautifully made and all of this by his Word. His words that are powerful, the same words he puts in our mouth to empower others. Yet there are times our flesh takes over and we misuse the power that the Lord has given us.
Don’t you have these moments when you just feel like you need to preach to somebody?
Hey! Sometimes I feel like preaching to myself. Once in the Word the Holy Spirit is taking over, Hallelujah ;-). It is fun to talk about Jesus and I will not hide it under tables and chairs “for I am not ashamed of the gospel”…(my favorite Roman verse by the way).
It’s the fourth day of my Daniel fast. For the people who don’t know what the Daniel fast is you can find a detailed explanation on the website of allaboutprayer.org. This a short version of the way I explain it; The Daniel fast is based on the verses 2 and 3 of chapter 10 in the book of Daniel. Daniel was a determined man with clear ideals and to achieve this he did not hide his feelings for anyone and was not out to please man. On the contrary , he took a personal initiative to begin a fast that kept him focused on what was truly God’s will.
