Some Thoughts

I was scared to look at the date of my last post, and yikes! it was scary.  I haven't posted in two weeks.  I guess I've been more busy thinking about things than writing about them!

Anyway, I came across these verses today....

1 Corinthians 1:27-29 (NIV)
But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.

I found it encouraging to know that I'm not the only crazy one God chose!  As I think about going to Mexico (in just 18 days!!!!!), I sometimes wonder what I am doing.  I mean seriously, I'm not very brave or outgoing and I'm definitely not eloquent with my words!  But yet, God still has a plan that involves me.  That's pretty exciting (and scary)!

As each day passes and I am one day closer to boarding that plane, I ask that you would remember my team and me in your prayers.  Pray that God would prepare us for what He would have us do while we are serving Him in Mexico!

Thank you, friends!  I am so blessed by each of you! :)


  1. Two weeks? Oh, Lizzie, I haven't blogged in almost two months so don't feel bad, haha! I did put two catch-up posts up though and hopefully will get back to blogging regularly!

  2. I'm praying for you and your upcoming trip! I love that verse...and the reminder that when we're weak, He's strong!!

    1. Thank you so much for your prayers, Hannah!! :) Thinking back on the week, that verse was very appropriate for the week I spent in Mexico.
