Take Me Deeper, Than My Feet Could Wander

mykalia main picThree summers ago, I went on summer project to San Diego, California where I learned how to share my faith and realized how important it was to share Christ’s love to others. Last summer, God placed me a in a sex-trafficking prevention home with 54 Thai girls. It was in Thailand that God changed my perspective on life. I am so blessed that I got to see God’s heart for the nations. I have seen that with each mission trip I have been on, God reveals something different to me each time.

With this summer, I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve our God in East Asia for six weeks. I know being in East Asia is going to be challenging but I also know that the gospel is much needed there! There are multiple reasons why I should stay back. I should be working because I’m student teaching next spring.  But as I am praying about this trip, God has really calmed my heart. I realized that there is nothing more important than sharing the gospel.

Through this journey I have been clinging onto God’s promise in Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you, Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for your Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Each day, I am getting excited and praying for East Asia. My prayers are for God to prepare our hearts  for his mission and to seek a relationship with those who does not know him yet.

Ok, so clearly God wanted me to see this; first of all, I’m going to be a senior at UW-Whitewater this Fall (good to see a fellow Wisconsinite!) Secondly, I’m also a Education Major, hopefully doing my student teaching two years from now. Thirdly, I’m going on a summer project with Cru High School to East Asia to specifically reach out to the students there. Fourthly, the title of your post is directly from the song ‘Oceans,’ which has been the anthem of my summer project since Christmas. Fifthly, I can’t get over the fact that this post is on behalf of Epic, a ministry aimed directly at reaching out to Asian students. Talk about ironic! God is funny like that; He knew I would need encouragement and affirmation for my trip, I’m leaving in about a month!! Praise God! Thank you for letting yourself be used by Him, because he really showed up in a huge way. 🙂
