"His love is deep....His love is WIIIIDEE..."
I picture the fields of Africa, the praire fields of Kansas, the expanse of the sky from the highest point around.
About ten years ago, a lady prayed for me.
She gave me a verse that the Lord had laid upon her heart.
About the Lord placing me in a WIDE place.
She went on to say, "Even though you are a little girl..."
I was in my early twenties at the time, but I was not offended at all because while she prayed and prophesied and spoke the word over my life, all I could think was, "Lord, I am just a little girl."
I think that is why this blog is aptly titled,
"The Little Missionary Girl All Grown Up."
I know it is a mouthful for a blog name and should be shorter
But it defines me.
This little girl.
This little missionary kid
Stumbling her way through in this great big WIDE grown up world.
And somehow there I find His grace.
I find His mercy.
It is new for me in ways I never expected.
Filling me up to fill the places He has prepared for me.
Psalm 18:19 - He brought me out to a wide-open place.He rescued me because he was pleased with me.GOD'S WORD® Translation
Psalm 118:5 - From my distress I called upon the LORD; The LORD answered me and set me in a large place.
