So this has been a week of lessons learned. To start, I ponderized 2 Cor 12:10 "Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ´s sake: for when I am weak, then I am strong." I believe that when we ponderize a scripture God puts a couple of experiences in our week to make sure we really learn to apply the scripture. So I guess by picking this scripture I was setting myself up for a week of trials.
This week I feel like we had to work extra hard to get results. It felt like everyone that we contacted straight up regected us and all of our appointments fell through. So I started to get quite frustrated. I felt like I´ve been very obedient and doing al the things that the Lord has asked me to do. So why weren´t the blessings coming?? Well one night I had a nice long prayer with the Lord and this is what he told me "The mission experience is to do what you are told, when you are told, to go where you are asked, and know that the blessing comes from enduring what I ask you. THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU; it is about opening you mouth at all times in all places. Doing my will without thought to the end result or consequence... that is what a mission is." Thanks to this experience, I can now truly say that I take pleasure in infirmities, reproaches, ncessities, persecutions, and distresses for Christ´s sake: for when I am weak, then I am STRONG. When I have tough days, I feel the love of the Savior MORE, because it shows me that he trusts me. It´s an oppurtunity to show commitment to the Lord. I love my Savior. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
