One Year

God's plans should overwhelm you. I am overwhelmed. In a great great way. SO MUCH is unfolding, that I have no time to even sit down and blog, and I am terribly behind on updating what is going on. I have a ton to tell about Kenya, and I still will make sure I post the great stories, but I couldn't let this date pass without posting something.

One Year ago July 11th, God amazed us in a way we never expected. He spared our lives during the Kampala bombings. We are still in awe of what He has done and following every step He puts in front of us. 

Read through this. This scripture came to life after our group survived the bombings. 

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High 
   will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, 
   my God, in whom I trust.”
 Surely he will save you
   from the fowler’s snare
   and from the deadly pestilence.
 He will cover you with his feathers,
   and under his wings you will find refuge;
   his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
 You will not fear the terror of night,
   nor the arrow that flies by day, 
 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
   nor the plague that destroys at midday.
 A thousand may fall at your side,
   ten thousand at your right hand,
   but it will not come near you.
 You will only observe with your eyes
   and see the punishment of the wicked.
  If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,”
   and you make the Most High your dwelling,
 no harm will overtake you,
   no disaster will come near your tent.
 For he will command his angels concerning you
   to guard you in all your ways;
 they will lift you up in their hands,
   so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
   you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
  “Because he[b] loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him;
   I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
   I will be with him in trouble,
   I will deliver him and honor him.
 With long life I will satisfy him
   and show him my salvation.”

I praise You God for all You have done for us and allowed us to experience. I thank You for the testimony you have painted in our lives and even in times of trial or question, I will follow you and trust you all my life. 

This is the post from last year that still gives me chills when I read it... I believe God typed these words with my hands.
