Overwhelmed By God's Goodness!

I think I use too many exclamation points in my writing! I don't know but maybe I'm just so excited about so many things that I can't resist throwing them in there. And when you write such a title for this post, an exclamation point is so apropos. It would be wrong to not include such punctuation when talking about God's goodness.

God's goodness has been so evident to me in these past couple weeks. I took a leap of faith and announced a date and believed that God would provide all my funds by a certain date. God would still be good even if all the money didn't come in but I've been overwhelmed by His goodness because it ALL came in right when I needed it and God has continued to provide! On June 25th, I not only had 76% of my support but a free plane ticket to PerĂº on the exact day that I needed to get back into the country!!!! (that sentence really needed more than one exclamation point)

Not only did God do all that but He continues to provide. I am confident that I will go back to Cusco with all that I need. Isn't God good? He would be good even if He just loved me and asked me to stick around here a little longer but He's overwhelmingly good because He backed me up when I took a step of faith to believe that He would provide in time. Yay!!!

So, on July 18th I will be getting on a plane and flying back to PerĂº once more! I'm excited about serving Him once more in the beautiful city of Cusco. It will be a very different experience from the last three years but the change is good. God has good things prepared for me to do and new things to teach me that I'm eager to learn. Bring it on, good God, bring it on!
