"There's nothing worth more that will ever come close, Nothing can compare, Your our living hope! Your presence Lord! I've tasted and seen of the sweetest of loves, were my heart becomes free, and my shame is undone. Your glory God is what our hearts long for!"
These lyrics echoed in my mind throughout the coarse of our day, with total surrender for the Lord's will to be made complete in this place. We traveled from the capital of Cambodia to the city of Battambang today with a welcome party put on by the Rapha house girls when we arrived. What an experience! So amazed at watching the power of our Savior and victory in the girls spirits as they danced around to fun music and laughed with one another and each of our team members. A living hope.
For the girls to be set free from so many of the lies of the enemy is a beautiful tangible experience, and the shame is undone. The value of each of these girls is priceless in God's eyes. My prayer is for each one of these girls to be valued within themselves, and to know they are worth Jesus.
I am overwhelmed with emotions, many indescribable. To have a God that is Omnipresent, even on the other side of the world-brings so much power to that truth. I love how David the Psalmist writes about our value in Psalm 8:3-4 "...When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you set into place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?" How important are we to God that he not only knows our names, but loves us and sees each one of us where we are.
