It’s all over the news. Everywhere one looks, especially recently and in the political sphere of life, masses of people from Central America are now making their way to the wall between Mexico and the US—something that is filling people here in the states with a plethora of emotions and stark political views.

Hi guys, I hope your thanksgiving was great!
I just wanted to honestly write about where I’m at right now, and what the Holy Spirit has been showing me.
Lately, I have felt more and more like this blog is a chore. More of a duty than a passion, more of just something to get done instead of something to invest in and enjoy. I have come face to face with these feelings, leaving me in tears and asking Jesus why it feels this way, again (it has happened multiple times).
Call it what you want—getting burnt out on ministry, becoming legalistic. But one thing the Lord showed me is that I always get this way when I am trying to do things in my own power, according to my own understanding. When I do this, writing for the blog feels heavy, burdensome, and oppressive.
I need the Holy Spirit to work in and through me on this blog—or else it is no longer the Spirit’s work, and is just the rambling of some legalistic girl.
I need to allow Jesus to lead, guide, and work through me on here, or I will always get burnt out.
Jesus’ yoke is easy; His burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30). I’m the one making it heavy.
As I continue blogging here on this blog, please pray that I would do so by God’s leading and power—and that my passion for simply praying over these Chibok girls and other prayer requests would remain hot instead of growing cold. Thanks, friends.
I don’t say it every day… but I am THANKFUL FOR ALL OF YOU!
Thank you for keeping up with and praying for these prayer requests! Jesus bless you all!
I know I have not written about Nigeria in a long time, because I have felt led to post all that I have because of the Holy Spirit’s leading. It’s about time to give an update about what is happening there! Continue reading
The news around my home has been particularly grave, as of late. Christopher Watts, a man who seemed to be a loving husband and father of 3, murdered his pregnant wife and two children in August. Today in Colorado, he was given life in prison, plus some, for his crimes, and heard from his wife’s family as well as his own about how his callous, cold-blooded acts have ruined the lives of so many.
If this was not enough, there was a shooting today in Chicago, which killed at least two people, including the gunman, while at least two others were wounded. Both of these crimes were obviously ultimately propagated by satan; and tonight, I would like to pray for those being completely ruined by the evil acts of only a couple of people.
“Dear Lord Jesus,
Oh Lord God. Our hearts hurt tonight for those in Chicago, as well as for those affected by the acts of Christopher Watts. Dear Jesus, we ask that You would turn even these disgusting acts and make them for the good of those who love You (Genesis 50:20), as well as comforting, leading, and guiding those who are completely heartbroken.
Thank You, Jesus, for this.
In Your Name we pray,
Do you know Jesus?
“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” (Genesis 50:20)
