Nervous. Excited. Good, profitable day. I am going to Mexico! Hurray! I had at least one meltdown today. It seems like I always go nuts about finances before missions trips. It makes sense since it is a super easy way for the devil to distract me from greater purposes. It is also a way to have me all uptight and scared when I should be externally focused. I have a breakdown about once a week over finances now. Otherwise, I am doing good. I did some housecleaning today. The kind that meant getting rid of old stuff. Stuff that I don’t need anymore. Papers, venting journals, that type of thing. Stuff I don’t want to carry with me into the future. Even if I am only 1% done with the task, I feel lighter already.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
