Hall of Faith

As it is 2:45am and I couldn't sleep, I got up to walk and spend time with you, O Lord.  You know I have really been struggling to know where you want me and feeling no desire to continue serving here on Molokai.  I have been praying that you would restore my passion for my children and their families and you were so faithful to do that yesterday as we came back to school from break. 

So for the past hour I have not been able to sleep.  I opened your Word to where I stopped reading yesterday and it just happens to be Hebrews 11!  The hall of faith!  This entire chapter spoke to my heart-  By faith I am going to serve you until another door opens by Your hand for me to walk through.  A sense of complete and utter peace has washed over me no matter if I see what the future holds or not ... by your strength I will be faithful to serve  you all the days you have me here. 

"These were all commended for their faith yet none of them received what had been promised.  God has planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect."  Hebrews 11:39-40
