you never stop learning..

i've been in Australia now for 6 weeks.. a month and a half. how CRAZY is that? Its so hard for me to believe. I love it, but at the same time i am so incredibly homesick:( even though Australia is not a third world country, it is different enough that i have begin to miss all the blessings of America..

I am so grateful i have Jason here to keep me sane and feeling safe.

This week my eyes were opened to alot of things. We learned about relationships, and i could tell you for hours about all the things i learned.

But as much as i learned and could tell you, it is SO hard to get it out on paper.
I did come to the realization that God has blessed me with some amazing relationships in my life, and i need to learn to be grateful for them, i need to love more, listen better, and show them i care.

Speak to my heart

These are quotes or bible verses from the week that really spoke to me:)

"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which i sent it." Isaiah 55:9-11

"I have loved you with an everlasting love; i have drawn you with loving - kindness." Jeremiah 31:3

"It does not matter what you think, or what happens in life - God is still God, and He is good." -Rose Mu

"God's character is something that we cannot understand, but need to learn to accept."

"One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you , O God, are strong." -Psalm 62:11

Fear will not stop hunting us down, but God will deliver us every single time.

Jesus had to be the one to save us on the cross because he must be Eternal, Sinless, Willing, and Human.

If someone gives us a car, we might say we want to take them out for dinner atleast.. if someone gives us a house, we want to give them a gift or some money... Jesus gave us his LIFE.. how do you ever repay a life? especially when he says he doesn't want anything in return..

"God is not absent from the affairs of men, but rather, man is often absent from the affairs of God."

-Choices imply decisions.
-Decisions form habits.
-Habits form character.
-Character decides your destiny..

Carry my Load

God is a burden bearer. As humans, we all have struggles. My burdens range from how am I going to afford rent this month, to what am I going to do with my life? Last year I spent months trying to find a house to live in when I return for school in January from Australia. During 4 months I looked at about 20 houses, went through 3 sets of roommates, failed way too many tests, fundraised $23,000 for YWAM and struggled in my relationship with Jason. Everything felt SO overwhelming. How was I ever going to deal with all of this by myself? The future seemed so stressful and such a burden. But God says in Matthew 11:28 and 29 that he will take our burden upon himself and give us rest. I really turned to God in this time in my life because I realized that I certainly couldn’t handle all these burdens myself. Mark 14:36 says, “Abba, Father, everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” When we turn every part of our lives over to God, he carries all our weight. I am still without a house, but I have the greatest roommate I could ask for, I fundraised the YWAM support, I still passed college with honors, and Jason and I are doing better than ever before. “Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.” God is strong, and he can handle way more than we ever could.

Follow me!

Hey friends! I set a blog ONLY for my trip to Australia.. so follow that if you want to get the deep heart felt stuff about my trip! THANKS! love you all=]


Where do i go from here?

I'm in Australia...
I've been here for a week now and it has been a week full of learning, emotion, love, sadness, amazement, frustration, excitment, and newness...
I left everything i knew and came to Australia where i knew nothing, nobody but Jason, and had no idea what i had to look for..
I miss my family..
but i love my new family..
I miss my friends...
but love my new friends..
I miss Colorado...
but i am falling in love with Australia!!
I miss comfort...
but i LOVE having to step out of my comfort zone and live a new life..

I have already learned so much about God and his love for me...
We learned about the cost of discipleship, and it was crazy to really get it knocked into my head that no matter how many good works we do, that is completely un necessary! God gave us eternity in heaven and sent His Son.. for FREE!! For nothing!! He doesn't want anything from us other than love and a life lived for him..

How amazing of a God do we serve?

If everybody could do YWAM DTS i would tell them to do it in a second...I LOVE it and its only been a week... thats my life for now...enjoy the pics:)
Maroochydore, Aus
Our first local outreach was going to a skate competition put on by the "Board Store" which is one of YWAM's ministries over here.. They are trying to make it one of the biggest skate competitions in Australia, so it would be a huge way for God to work here in Australia! We prayed, handed out bibles, talked to locals, and helped with registration. Pray that God will move in skater's hearts!
