Starting a non profit is far from easy. Being here for the first month of the opening of this organization has been very eye opening. I have learned a lot on management, social work, business, intercultural communications and marketing strategies. Everyday there is something new and different issues come up.
I am constantly amazed at the wisdom and discernment God has given Devon to handle different situations. We can constantly be at peace knowing that this is God’s project and even when problems come up we know for sure that nothing will tear down this organization because God is so behind it.
This past week Devon, Megan and I have been having worship and prayer time and just have given it all to God. He is our strength and our comforter. No matter how overwhelming the day has been, God always replenishes us and fills us up to pour into the kids the next day. Having the three of us together has been really encouraging because we can always come together in prayer and be open about everything. Relationships centered on Christ gives you a bond that is unexplainable. Jesus says. “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them” (Mathew 18:20.) Every time we have come together in prayer and worship we have just been overwhelmed by the presence of the Holy Spirit. I have been strengthened so much by Him this month because we have had to rely entirely on God. The situations that have come up have been out of our control and therefore we have had to trust entirely on the Lord. He has answered prayers every single time and it has been amazing to see how He works. He has given dreams, prophetic words, whispers, visions, peace and scripture that has met us where we are every time. I am in awe of God.
God doesn’t promise us that life will be easy and we are constantly fighting a spiritual battle against the Enemy. But no matter what comes up, I know that my God is in control.
