1 Corinthians 9:19
“For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more”
King of kings,
You are an amazing King. Your name reigns forever and forever. You give grace to everyone and You are full of mercy. I need to read more of Psalms, so I can learn how David called You, and how he loved You. My King I praise You and I thank You! Thank You for everything You are doing right now in my life and those around me. I can see You working. My stress has basically vanished, and I thank You. You took me out of a place that was crippling my walk with You. You knew it and You needed to save me, even if originally I fought against it. God, You knew the best for me. “For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more” (1 Corinthians 9:19). Being in Guatemala I sometimes find myself wondering about what is happening at home. Every time I get on the internet I am distracted by some type of bad news or just sad situations. Father, I don’t want to ever leave this place, I literally feel like I am on a honeymoon with You. God, I don’t want it to end. I want to stay here with these 21 people, they are my family. I remember that in the first three weeks of being here, someone said that they would be willing to die for all of us. My legit thought was “I have only known these people for three weeks, there is no way I would.” Now, knowing them I would be willing to die for one… Maybe… (Pause for laughs) Hahahahaha, no I am just kidding. I would be willing to take a bullet for any of them. It’s just amazing to see how You have been moving in all my classmates lives. ” For though I am free of all men,” I am made alive in You God and I thank You. Surrounding myself with people that are liked minded has helped me incredibly with my walk with You. I use to think that I could be around people that weren’t Christians and still have a firm walk with You. I learned that it actually did more damage to myself then it did any good to them. My classmates have helped me out so much and I am just amazed at their different stories. Back in the states we probably wouldn’t even looked twice at each other if we passed by on the street. Yet, now being here with them for 45 days, like Jack said yesterday, we have influenced each other in so many ways. Thank You my King. Ruler over all, and the whole world is in Your hands. Help us serve each other with love, and serve others that aren’t on the property. LOVING GOD, LOVING PEOPLE.
“therefore, brethren, we are debtors- not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Romans 8:12-14
A: I will memorize the verse above, again…
