2012 - Already a full year!

So it is January 8th 2012. The morning of the 8th day and I already feel like God has done a lot in 2012.
What has He done? He is speaking to me to do a few things.
One...write more. He has given me momentary thoughts that have really challenged my thinking or encouraged me and told me to write them down. I have had a couple of deep conversations with some people too about His Love and His Word. God really wants us to fully use the Helper that He sent to us. Yes! The Holy Spirit. He sent Holy Spirit to be a helper, counselor, encourager. The Greek word paraclete..was originally used. (look it up:) Holy Spirit is an active member of our Christian lives but only as active as we allow.
I had a friend already challenge me to write a blog or here goes Darren! Not sure how to do this my friend...but here goes!
If you're reading this and you need a word of it is! God is alive and well and working for your best! Not what we want but what we need! What is best for us!
Having a hard time believing that? Its called trust and faith. It is looking at God's character and believing that He does not have favorites. That He loves us each equally! This has always been a bit hard for me to believe but I am choosing to believe it. A little over a year ago, God challenged me to really believe that He loves me and has a purpose for my life or to just stop! It was a harsh moment. But God doesn't want us to believe it only part of the time! He wants us to believe Him all of the time! To get up each morning believing that He has a plan and a purpose for us that day! To be ALL in!!
Is this hard? Yep!! Some days at least, those days when we are doing things we are tired of...painting trim, fixing a toilet (again), taking paint off of cabinet doors that we just put on but it didn't dry correctly, trying to get rid of bugs! Yep, those days are kind of hard to see that we have a purpose for the King of Kings! But then He allows us to pray for someone or challenges our thinking! Then we get a little glimpse of how much He cares about us!

So choose to believe Him or not!! Stop being half way in! Finish what He started in us when we were born! A purpose!! That what we have and what we are!
YOU HAVE A PURPOSE!! Step up and start living with purpose!

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!
