“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
I have been writing about waiting on God and what that means to me. One thing that I have learned during my sabbatical journey is that I have to depend on the Lord always. Before I knew my husband, I was always the independent woman and also I was not a person who would ask anything from anybody. Not my family, not my friends, I would do it all on my own. I would always say I was born on earth alone so why should I ask anything from anybody.
Let me tell you about my experience in Malaysia starting with Kuala Lumpur short version KL. First of! The flight was horrible, this time we got sprayed in the airplane instead of the eye lacer treatment like in Hong Kong. Kuala Lumpur International airport is located in Sepang. The airport hotel in Sepang, where my husband and I stayed in for our first night, was worse than our flight and not to mention the airport shuttle…. Rollercoaster! In the end we made it to our hotel…. There was evening, and there was morning—the second day.
So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place. Mark 6:32 NIV
Beach and coconut all day. Life is beautiful when you have God in it. Until now I can say God is leading us, every step of the way. Exactly what we have asked for in our prayers. After a hustle and bustle in Hong Kong we arrived in Phuket, Thailand! It was time for true rest, peace and living the coconut life. No running around anymore but just being blessed of the warmth treatment from the Thai people. I can tell you I liked them from the moment we landed. The Thai people are so friendly and helpful, if you have never been I would say go go go!
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.
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.
