“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.” ~ Isaiah 61:1-3
Welcome to my website. In 2007 upon returning from a mission to Romania, my Pastor was discussing the trip at a church service and said of me, “If anyone knows Melissa…” I don’t know how that sentence ended but I remember well my thought. I thought, no one knows me. And with that, my blog began. After 14 years of blogging, does anyone know Melissa? Probably not, but you will find my heart on this blog without looking very far…and that is a love for missions, prayer and the study and teaching of the God’s Word. If you want to know more, let’s get together for lunch or something.
