Praise the Lord!

Today Brooklyn had her tonsils out. Everything went very well. Our prayers were answered. I find myself worrying when I don't need to. I need to be better at believing God. He is our hedge of protection (and protect her he did). We were very blessed to have Dr. Phil at the wheel. Knowing that his hands were guided by God was a huge praise.
Thank you to everyone who prayed for her. We will continue to pray for healing and a fast recovery.

Why are we going?

A beautiful snow fell yesterday. It finally feels like winter again. I often find myself questioning why it is we are leaving the comforts of home to move to someplace as uncomfortable as Boulder. From a wordly perspective it makes no sense at all. I have to remind myself that we are going to do what God has called us to do. A friend called to share a verse with me today and it helped to remind me of our mission.

It is Isaiah 61:1-3

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion-
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
tho oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
The will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor.

A God Day

Here are some wise words from Pastor Bryan Clark, "We operate on the level of the supernatural. We are constantly dancing on the edge of this mysterious, unimaginable, unpredictable presence of God, where we understand on any given day the most amazing, miraculous things may happen. Every day there is a sence of anticipation that this will be a "God day" and things that cannot be planned, strategized, understood or explained may happen before our very eyes. That's what God wants from Us."

I think if we all lived everyday thinking that it is a "God day" life would be a lot more exciting!

We hope that everyone is have a wonderful "God day" today!

I am not a very computer savvy person but setting this up has been kind of fun! I hope to start putting more profound stuff on here later but until then just keep checking for these not-so-deep thoughts by the Brinker family.
