This morning as I was beading, I was listening to Matthew West. His song "Family tree" was playing and my thoughts were wandering through just how much dysfunction there is in our world. How families have become so broken because of our fallen world. My thoughts began to wander to the precious Kigongo boys in Uganda. Their story is so tragic...so heartbreaking...but piece by piece, God is redeeming their lives.
Oh, this is not your legacy.
This is not your destiny, yesterday does not define you.
No, this is not your legacy. This is not your meant to be!
I can break the chains that bind you.
I have a dream for you.
It's better than where you've been.
It's bigger than your imagination.
You're going to find real love, and you're going to hold your kids.
You'll change the course of generations!
After I finished playing with my beads, I came inside and checked my email and saw the giving log from yesterday. Tears fell as I saw another $5000 had been donated towards Village of Grace, the home being built for the Kigongo boys!
We are at 35%! GOD IS DOING THIS!! And once again, I stand humbled by God's provision...by His faithfulness....but His love.
I must confess...my faith has been weak lately. I was reminded of Matthew 17:20 this week: He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." I even found myself saying out loud "I believe Lord".
We will be with the Kigongo boys in just 2 short weeks and will have lots more updates and photos we can't wait to share! Would you join us in praying for them to feel God's love and presence in their lives? Would you also join us in praying for the remainder of the funds for Village of Grace?
If you feel led to donate, please visit the Village of Grace page and follow the donation link. We are so grateful for your generosity.
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ - Matthew 25:40
