A few concentrated prayer requests

By now you know that we have been seriously praying about what God has planned for our future here in the mountains of N.C.
I have known for awhile now that God was taking us in the direction of full time Christian ministry......and have quietly just continued to pray about God putting that on my husbands heart.
Well...last night at church that prayer was answered.
He told me that he had something really important to tell me....and then looked me in the eye and said what had been on my heart.
He said, "Sharon, God is calling us to be missionaries."
I will admit that those were not the exact words that I was expecting......it gave me visions of getting on an airplane heading for deep dark Africa.
After a quick check to see that that was not the vision he was having....and it was not....I breathed a sigh of relief and gave him a quick kiss. I knew by the tears in his eyes that God was writing a beautiful thing on his heart.
We are now in complete unity....a beautiful thing before our Lord.

If you will help us by praying about our future I would so appreciate it.
Pray that God will continue to unite Keith and I.
Pray that as we walk that our family will be protected from the schemes of the enemy.
Pray that He will direct our path and give us a greater understanding
of what He is calling us to do.
We continue to work up on the mountain with the Mountain Top Experience ministry.
We have still not been given a clear answer as to our future there.
They have asked us to write down our beliefs so that they can be presented to the board next month. Dad said we should just hand them the Bible and say.....This is it! :)
But we will sit down and write out all that we have been taught by the Spirit....that should do it.
We have also have had a little direction from our church.
I won't go into that now...but they are praying too.
Needless to say.....we are learning what it means to walk by faith.
It is a little intimidating...but HE IS FAITHFUL!
He is our provider and in Him our security is secure.
I know this deep in my heart.
Thank you for your prayers.
I will let you know more as He speaks. Thank you for linking arms and prayers with us.

Your Sister in Service

Rejoicing with you sweet sister! I am praying......"the Lord is faithful, and will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. We have confidence in the Lord concerning you, that you are doing and will continue to do what the Lord commands. May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ." 2 Thess. 3:3-5

Praying for you, my dear friend...that God will direct you and Keith where you should go and unite you in your future.

I've missed visiting with you. I've had the boys all summer and it's been hectic. They return to school on Tuesday and I'm hoping that will give me more time for reading, writing and blogging.

Wishing you a happy and safe Labor Day weekend.
Blessings,
Mary

The Lord does not take us where the Grace of God can not keep us. This is something that is cemented in my heart and mind and though I would remind you of it in light of your blog. :)
