Today was another day I didn’t go to Sabolciu because Norbi and Mircea who are the two guys I work with had to work on the updates for the children. I was so disappointed that I didn’t go today because I really wanted to go but there is nothing I could do about it. I ended up staying home during the day where I worked on my blog and did some other things.
In the evening I went to my church for the youth and young adult’s service. The worship was amazing and it was such a great time in God’s presence! Calin Ciuciui (he’s one of Pastor Ted’s younger brothers) preached tonight. I forget what his sermon title was but I remember it was a great message he preached on making a difference in the world. My friend Stefan translated for me but he couldn’t translate very well because he had a bad headache so I tried to understand what I could when he couldn’t translate for me. I didn’t understand the entire sermon but thankfully I got a general gist of it.
I was so encouraged tonight when Calin showed the picture of the ice berg because last summer at my church camp God showed me this picture which was kind of like a vision when He spoke to me about going into full-time ministry with the orphan and gypsy children. Something I learned about the ice berg tonight that I didn’t know before is only 10% of it is above the water and 90% is below the water. When God spoke to me and showed me the picture of the ice berg He basically told me that I have only seen the ice berg that is above the water but there is much, much more He has in store for me in the call that God has on my life.
Tonight was a great reminder of what God spoke to me last summer because lately I have been struggling with being here because I hardly have started any kind of full-time ministry with the orphan and gypsy children since I have been here. It was never my heart’s desire to only do it part-time but full-time. I know and believe that God has great things in store for me and what He wants to do in and through me. Now I just need to press forward in faith and believe God that He will bring that to pass in His timing. I also think that I need to spend more time with God in prayer and really seek Him for the destiny and calling He has on my life here in Romania. I believe that faith and prayer are two important keys to seeing breakthrough and I need to exercise these two keys on a daily basis. I praise God for the reminder He gave me tonight!
