Sorry this blog has been a long time in the making. I recently just got back from Mexico and it was slightly amazing that the same week I was gone was the week about passion. This trip was really hard this year, because there was so much uncertainty surrounding me going and my family being there is always a challenge. I also found out that one of my friends was no longer going to be a barney this summer... needless to say this trip gave me a great sea of emotions. I don't know about all of you, but I am really scared about this summer, it is hard to admit that because it seems like everyone just has it all together right now. BUT I am freaked out. My mom doesn't think I will last the whole three weeks of serving and I am so scared she might be right. When I was serving my week in Mexico I got really sick... like I always do when I am working through exhaustion. This freaked me out. I just kept thinking to myself. "Haley how are you going to serve this summer if you can't even survive a week in Mexico??" Then as always God found a way into my heart through the devotional.
13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
As I struggle with the fears I have for this summer I must look forward to what God has ahead for me. I must keep my path focused on God's plan, and the plan this summer is to serve on the Delta with God.
Sending you all lots of love!
