Hello folks! Happy Mother's day for y'all! May God bless all the moms in the world!
Last week, we got the awesome opportunity to meet E's parents! they're soooo cool, believe me! Pastor G got to preach the sermon today at our church and i had to translate it into portuguese! it was really nice. loved the message! i'm so glad i got to meet my whole American family! it is really nice to be among them!
it was really touching getting postal cards and notes from some members from the Lutheran church in Missouri! they are very nice people! it is soooo good to know that we have brothers and sisters in Christ, even though far away, but at the same time sooo close too us! what a GREAT family we have in Christ!
God bless you, my friends!
Dying To Self

I absolutely LOVE this passage. I'm not sure who wrote it but it goes through my mind a lot.
"When you are purposely set aside, rejected, forgotten, and hurt with the insult of oversight--but your spirit sings because you are being counted worthy to suffer for Christ, that is "Dying to Self". When your advice is disregarded, your opinions ridiculed, and all manner of evil is spoken against you, and you refuse to let anger rise in your heart, or even defend yourself, but take it all with patient, loving silence, that is "Dying to Self." When you do not allow any disorder, irregularity or arrogance to come against your peace, when you are face to face with filth, waste, stupidity, or spiritual pride, and endure it as Jesus endured it, that is "Dying to Self." When you are content with the location you live, the climate, the society, the solitude of the "backside of the desert", and are willing to have your plans changed or interrupted by the will of God at any moment, that is "Dying to Self." When you never care to have others know of your good works, and never refer to yourself in conversation, or even care to have anyone commend you, when you truly love to be the unknown, that is "Dying to Self." When you can see your brother prosper and have his needs met, and can honestly rejoice with him in Spirit, and feel no envy, nor question God as to why your own needs are not being met, that is "Dying to Self." When you can receive correction and reproof, finding no rebellion, or resentment rising up in your heart, that is "Dying to Self."
