Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him
and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6

That was the verse we memorized this week. Even though I have heard this verse multiple times this week was different. Since I have arrived I have been challenged by the thought of giving everything up to God. This month I'm reading 'Making Jesus Lord' by Loren Cunningham the founder of YWAM. The first couple chapters talk about losing everything and putting your life into God's hands. That's exactly how I felt the first week; absorbed in culture shock and homesickness I felt like I had lost everything. (I know it sounds a bit extreme, but that's honestly how it felt.) And the challenge in this verse and in the book were both to not trust in your own abilities but to give that trust to God and to fully rely on him. So this week I have been challenged by that thought and I think God is still working that into me. =) Love & Miss you all


p.s. here's a couple pictures taken by my roommate Alison of the Gorgonas beach.


  1. So great Kayla! We are praying for you!

    I just did a 1MM on that verse! Check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6vcLq-Frj8&feature=player_embedded


  2. Hi Kayla,

    I hope one of the things that comes out of this whole adventure you're on is that you trust God more at the end of it. We are keeping you in our prayers.
