The last few weeks I've been quite emotional.....
I started off the month wondering if it was truly God who had laid our SMART outreach on my heart, or if it was my own contrived idea. So many doubts were flooding my mind with whether or not it was worth our time or doing any good. Obstacle after obstacle standing in our way.
It's mission conference at our church through the month of February, which for us always means opposition. Illness', oppressions, people pressing us with their criticisms......how can we continue this way? It was "feeling" like there was no hope or help in sight, still we had a few encouragers to ease the tension, we are so thankful for those!
2 Corinthians 4:8-9
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
2 Corinthians 4:13-17
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day
