Less than two weeks before take off. As I prepare, I find that this trip is going to be so different for me than the last one. There was this heaviness and fear in me on the last trip, but this year I can feel the joy and excitement to come.
But in saying that, it does not go without a struggle. What I find is that there is a very real enemy that wants to see us fail in epic proportions. So, as I prepare, my biggest thing even before my luggage [inside joke] is that I need to watch out for the traps that the devil has set before me. I know I need to stay in prayer, the word and worship mode. One thing I am sure of is that within me is an epic fail, but God is so much bigger than me and my sin. So as I see and recognize that which is within me, I guard myself and submit to my loving Father whose desire for me is to have an EPIC WIN!
1 Peter 5:8: Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Keeping the faith,
