Common Threads

7 days until Moshi, Tanzania, Africa!!!

Thinking this afternoon about how God gives each of us His assignment and His message for a time such as this. I am going to Africa because that is my assignment. You are going somewhere too and that somewhere is yours. Our team is made up of seven women and two men. We are all heading out as a team to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Only one message but the Lord has laid on each of our hearts a different aspect of that message to share. Even the means of our planned deliveries are very different and unique to each of us. Different but with a common thread holding us together tightly. The differences are all needed and necessary. I am I. You are you. Different individuals and yet the same Body…and therein does much beauty lie. It is glorious really. Don’t you love the Lord?

Here is a very, very brief summary showing the common thread for all the messages, crafts, activities, and gifts that God has laid on my heart and helped me prepare for TZ!

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ~ John 1:1

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the Only Begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. ~ John 1:14

He sent His Word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. ~ Psalm 107:20

Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee. ~ Psalm 119:11

He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him. ~ John 14:21

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the Word of our God shall stand for ever. ~ Isaiah 40:8

Thanks for all those that are praying. Your prayers are surely carry me!!!
