We fly out today to Costa Rica. So, why are we going?
Because God sent His Son Jesus to die for us. He has given us the greatest gift we could possibly imagine. Why do we need more reason?
God has been working this in me over the past couple weeks. We have already been given the greatest gift we could ever imagine, eternal life in heaven with our God, yet we always seem to want more.
As a parent do you remember what it is like when you take your kids out for a special day. You fill the day with love and gifts, special things for them. Then, at the end of the day you tell them it is time to go home and they whine, complain and throw a fit because they want more? God showed me how I can be like that, whining for more when I have already been given the greatest gift I could ever receive. We tell Eliana and Elijah “You get what you get and don’t throw a fit.” I needed to hear that myself.
We are going to Costa Rica because God speaks. He is active and working in this world. He is in control. He is calling His people to serve and to Worship Him. God wants our family to be in Costa Rica. He has called us to go and we have said Yes.
Thank you for your prayers.
