You don’t hear very much from me lately. I have had to cut back on my English blogs because my Spanish ministry is exploding. The ideas come rolling in faster than I can output them. Praise the Lord!
I consider this week very productive. Every day at 1.00PM my time and 8.00PM Dad’s time in Sweden we have a Skype conversation. He doesn’t have a camera on his computer so I only get to hear his voice, but he can see me! We have been discussing issues about the ministry in Peru. Some things have been like thorns on the roses. We needed some comfort. Then the picture came to me about being safe in God’s hands.
I wanted to illustrate this so I asked both of my artists for help. We are just in the beginning stages of developing this idea, but I am too excited to keep it to myself Maybe someone reading this has a challenging situation. I told Dad to picture himself resting in a recliner, picturing that recliner to be the hands of God.
Now there is my Dad. What about me? What about you? We’re just as safe. Picture yourself in the following picture. You might download it and print it. Cut a picture of yourself and glue it in the middle. There you are! Put it where you will see it the most. Remind yourself every day how sweet and safe it is to be in God’s care.
Cristina is working on art specifically for children. I’m praying about the story to go with it next week. It’s going to be an exciting week. For an “old” teacher to meet one of her students from her youth Sunday school is overwhelming. God has held her in His Hands all these years–45 years! I’ll see if I can’t make a picture blog about her visit. We’re going to have six days together!
“I am Alejandra, and … I am safe in the hands of God.”
If you don’t have this assurance, run to Jesus! He has promised that in His Hands we are safe. How I love Jesus! I can’t wait for the day I’ll get to see Him and stay with Him forever! Come soon, Lord Jesus!
