I apologize this will be March and April’s Blog , As I continue to obey God and seek what he has in store for me many things have happened. First God showed me much more than I could have ever seen if I had not come to Uganda, that being said I will be leaving to come back to the States in May. I will continue to be a part of the FNC family and that will not change, but God has shown me a bigger picture and I need to prepare for that. I want to be able to help with the future of these kids as well as to pour into my own Grand-children. I will continue to come and visit FNC Uganda but just not be living here.
This has not been an easy decision for me and I have cried a lot. I love these kids so much but God loves them even more then I do. I need to remind myself of the bigger picture- the bigger story-that came before me and will live long after me.
I recently heard a new song by Casting Crowns called Only Jesus. I would like to share these words with all of you as I hope to leave this kind of legacy not only to the children here in Kampala at FNC but to my own children and grand-children. Jesus is all that matters. Below are the words to “Only Jesus”
Make it count, leave a mark, build a name for yourself, Dream your dreams, chase your heart, above all else Make a name the world remember, But all an empty world can sell is empty dreams. I got lost in the light when it was up to me. To make a name the world remembers. BUT JESUS IS THE ONLY NAME TO REMEMBER.
And I, don’t want to leave a legacy, I don’t care if they remember me. ONLY JESUS, And I, I’ve only got one life to live I’ll let every second point to Him ONLY JESUS.
All the kingdoms built, all the trophies won, Will crumble into dust when it’s said and done. Cause all that really mattered, Did I live the truth to the ones I love? Was my life the proof that there is only ONE. Whose name will last forever?
And I, I don’t want to leave a legacy, I don’t care if they remember me, ONLY JESUS, And I, I’ve only got one life to live, I’ll let every second point to Him ONLY JESUS
JESUS IS THE ONLY NAME, JESUS IS THE ONLY NAME TO REMEMBER
So with that being said please always lift me up in prayer as I go through this new transition, it has been full of grief, sadness, happiness all sorts of emotions but I know God is with me through it all. Thank you for the continued prayers. God Bless
