We visited Israel in September in order to be refreshed at at the all nations convocation. Our main goal was to let our children be healed in these times of changes that we are facing as a family. After having talked to missionaries who have been in the field for many years, we realized more clearly that the process we are going though can have an immense influence on the lives of our kids. We trust God in this area too and we therefore decided to travel to Israel with the belief that God would began a healing process in our kids. And we believe that He did release His healing power. I know it because I was always very emotional when I started to talk about it before the trip and tears came into my eyes. Today it’s all different and I am confident that God is in control and I don’t have to worry. God has also helped us find the right school for our kids and now even the housing situation is progressing. We are currently trying to find furniture, beds and mattresses. Yes, that’s right. We have nothing of our own. So far we have been given the opportunity to use everything from Barca’s parents who shared their home with us as if it was our own from the beginning. They have even been lending us their cars while they took the bus instead. We are extremely thankful for what they have done for us. Now we will soon be eight and their van with seven seats is not big enough for us anymore. I trust God that He will, in his time, provide the best car for our family.
I went hiking the other day and one of my good friends asked me how we are managing if we don’t have anything in control and in our hands. My question is, what do we as humans actually have in control? What do we hold in our hands. Happiness, life, death, love? In our hands we hold the decision either to live with God or without Him. If we decide to live with Him, it does not mean we will always have everything right now. It does not mean opposite either. However, all of those, that live with God and learns about His great love for man as well as his perfection and omnipotence, will have to admit, that it is best for the human to surrender under His guidance.
