Thankful Thursday

This is my only picture for today but it speaks volumes!  In America we have freedom and opportunity that is far greater than most of the world. When we look at the differences with an earthly view our countries and cultures seem so different.  This is my seventh time to visit El Salvador and what i have found is there is one thing that ties us all together.  We are born a void in our hearts and we are all searching for what we need to fill that void. We sometimes try and fill it with many things. Sometimes it’s drugs. Sometimes it’s material things. Sometimes it’s worry and control.  Sometimes it’s a longing to feel loved and we look in al the wrong places. Sometimes it’s joining a gang. The way are endless!  Sometimes we have to reach a breaking point to realize we need a total surrender.  It is then that God starts whispering in our ear and our heart begins to soften. Each one of us is called to give testimony for what God has done in our lives and how we came to that point of total surrender.  Today was a very emotional and very powerful day.  The power of the Holy Spirit was so strong and we saw several teens that were impacted by the power of Jesus. It is only when we can still ourselves long enough to hear Jesus whispering in our ear and become strong enough to surrender our complete lives and everything in it that change begins to happen. I am so thankful that God has given me a heart for mission work.
