Watch and See

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Thoughts - Do we think about our thoughts? What is in our mind?
Word - Do we watch our words? What about what we say to our family?
Actions - Do we diligently watch what we do? Where we go?
Habits - Do we have habits that would be displeasing to God?
Character - What do we do when no one is watching? This is our true character.
Destiny - God has a destiny and a plan for your life. Are you listening to Him and following His leading?

This is what God has been placing on my heart over and over and over again in the past few weeks of schooling here at YWAM! From different angles and different people but it all points directly back to doing what God wants.

Proverbs 19:21 says, "Many are the plans of a man's heart but the purpose of the Lord shall prevail." Am I allowing the Lord's will and purposes to prevail in my life? I sure hope so because that is where I wish to be! Right smack dab in the middle of His Will! Even if it is messy and not so sweet some times. That is where I belong!

What is the Lord speaking to you about? What is He challenging you to change in your life? This week's teacher said, "If you can't hear God's voice, what is filling your mind in its place?"

God, never let me fail to hear your voice!

What are the Walkers doing right now?

We are moving!!

The last week of August, our family will be moving long-term to Santiago, Dominican Republic. We will be working with YWAM Santiago and the Martin Family! We are super excited about this transition. But also praying for wisdom as we figure out visa's, residency, what to do with our things, etc...

As always, we are praying that the Lord will use us wherever we are!

Lord, help us not to miss the things you have prepared for us to do!
