What has been intended for evil, you turn it for our good and for your glory. You are perfect in love, you have not forgotten us. Thank you Jesus.
My dear friends
As I am writing this, I am sitting in an airplane, that takes me to Europe. My mother and my daughter are with me. My son and my dog are staying behind, with my sister – I know, they are in good hands, but my heart is breaking just the same.
The reason for this trip is a rather sad one: my mother’s health took a turn for the worse and we need to go back to Europe, to make sure, she can get the best help. She was not the happiest camper in Canada, since she doesn’t speak the language. I am taking her home.
The other, also very sad reason for traveling to Europe is my father’s health. He is in this care facility in Germany and he is not well.
As much as I wanted to have all the plans laid out before me, before I booked a flight, none of that happened. Rather no plans, but a deep trust, that Jesus knows and that he has a plan. He has this all figured out. Otherwise, he would not have had me book the flight. But I felt it very strongly in my spirit, to go ahead and travel now. He has got this, all I need to do, is walk in obedience. Listen closely to the nudgings of the Holy Spirit.
My daughter is traveling with us – this is another prompting I received from the Lord this morning – that I ought to take her along. He heard her plea, and had me act on it. The song that flooded my soul, when I obeyed, was: Holy Spirit you are welcome here…..and all I can say: yes, he is!
Now we are headed oversees. My mom, my daughter and I – trusting him for the best for all of us.
I know he is omnipresent and he is always in all that concerns us. He is in all that we are going through right now. He has it all figured out, and he will direct our steps. This has been his promise all along: when we acknowledge him in all our ways, he makes our paths straight.
I know, that from a human perspective the situation looks very bleak and with not very many turns for the better to be expected. I also know, that many may think, that I am in denial of the facts and the truth.
Far from it – yes, I know it looks bleak, and when I took my mom to Grandparents Day on October 28, I knew full well, that this may be the last time, that she may be able to attend. My parents have been there for twenty years – not saying, that they have always been there, but my two older nieces have started attending Georgetown District Christian School 20 years ago. Then my children started attending in 2009.
I know, that the medical diagnosis for either one of my parents is not one of future and hope. But that is where I choose to believe, that my God is bigger and that he can still perform miracles.
He has promised me, that he is doing a new thing, that I do not have to dwell on the past. That he is God Almighty, and that he is good. He calls us to trust, that his plans are still to prosper, that he has not forgotten us. He is about to give us a hope and a future.
Recently I heard the testimony of a lady and friend in my church, that he has cured her body of all cancer. He can do it, and he promised, that he healed my mother and my father’s frame.
Despite the bleak diagnosis for my parents, I choose to trust God. He has come through for me a million times. He will not fail or abandon us. He will deliver my parents from the hands of the enemy – the one, that sows doubt and condemnation. He has said it and he is true to his word. The Glory Honor and Praise is his forever and always.
I know, he has a plan in suffering – he pulls us closer to himself, deeper into his embrace.
My precious Jeshua is never going to give up on any soul inhabiting this world right now. There is always time to run to him. His arms are opened wide to receive all of you into his kingdom, which truly is an internal one, but real just the same. And the more souls are joining him there, the more the world will turn into paradise.
He is not giving up on my parents. Health is theirs in Christ Jesus. Here or in death, they will be reunited with the Holy one of Israel. So my heart rejoices. For he has their redemption all planned out already – I am just connecting the dots.
I am grateful, he has chosen me, to be his ambassador, to make a difference in their lives now, and to be instrumental in establishing them in their new place.
I trust the guidance of the Holy Spirit with regards to their future and I will go full out on this trip. The world and it’s limiting views can not scare me, neither can they stop me.
Thank you, Jesus, for being right here with me. You are my beloved and I trust your word more than anything. For you are sovereign over us.
Please, my friends, I covet your prayers for our time in Europe, that there is no opposition of the enemy against the will of Christ. The victory is ours. Jesus won the victory on the cross – please stand in agreement with me on that one.
I love you, my friends – I will be in touch when there is more to say. Stay tuned for a miracle, because my God is bigger than any of the circumstances at hand, he is still doing miracles today. I am trusting him for ours.
In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen
Forever your friend,
