blessed to be stressed

"My brothern, count it all joy..." (James 1:2-3) The child sitting next to me that Sunday morning at the orphanage where I took this photo really understood that it is Christ that counts. It is not the joy of possessions or pleasure of an intact family that brings fulfillment, no it is Christ alone. If you’re like me you go on a missions trip planning to serve others; but I have found that I am the one that is blessed. It is the great mystery of Christ; I call it “to blessed to be stressed”. "God, break my heart for the things that break Your heart." Dios los bendiga!

    Hi Max! I voted. I am not sure what exactly I am voting for, but if it helps you, I did it. We lived in Cali, Colombia where one of my sons was born. My grandson went to Cali on a mission trip last year.

    I will be praying for you.
