Fundraising Goal a bit more God size

My post from yesterday launching the new Goal for Fundraising generated a blessing of a comment. As a result I am fixing my typo of $5,000 and upping it to the $45,000 I knew was needed for Phase 1 of Building a school.

I’m not sure if this is from me or from the Lord, but I feel like you should ask for more..this sounds strange sorry! But girl, some verse came to mind, Enlarge your Tents, strengthen your chords, He is doing a NEW thing! I think even bigger and greater than you can see right now. You’re gonna need more money girl. But be JOYFUL in this! Not fearful or overwhelmed.

After Andy died I flipped my bible open to Isaiah 54 which talked about a barren woman being blessed with children. This spurred hope in me and has continued to this day. Now a person I’ve met only once comments on my blog about ‘Enlarging my tent, strengthening my cords’, straight from that same verse.

So Bring it on! Let’s see what a mustard seed of faith can do and move a mountain. I bet before December 11 when I fly back to Uganda God can get at least the $5,000 raised.

Can it be as easy as saying Yes

Don’t judge an event by it’s cover and never doubt that when God says DO something that he won’t follow through.

What do you think of when you hear Benefit Concert or orphans in Africa?  Lots of cliche’s I bet and also completely over done publicity on needing to help the starving in Africa. I know it’s real and I also found photos of kids starving and all the hopelessness there too overwhelming to even think I could do something. Well that was 3 years ago back when life seemed simpler.  But life can still be SIMPLE, really!  If we just take a moment to view one child who captures our hearts and then connect with a few more as we open our hearts to more we can see how plausible it is to help the helpless. Orphans are supposed to be cared for and widows should step out and take charge. Through our weakness God can shine through and do all the work.

Case in point..

Tonight I met with some awesome people about the benefit concert. Never met them before and was going on a leap of faith it would turn out beneficial and that it was the right direction for Healing Eyes. I even ordered the post card mailers with there address on it for the venue before meeting them. Leap of Faith here we go.

What happened?

Well I was shown again how small I am in the grand scheme of things and that God already had it covered. I sat back and listened to this group of professionals plan out each part of the event, down to permits and parking and even filling holes in the grass. I just had to share my passion and my story as to why I am doing all of this and sit back and let God do what he had already laid ahead of me. Silly Sarah…worrying about how impossible a concert would be. It’s all taken care of and is definitely a GO!

If you want to see miracles than just come on by Sept 19th from 6-8pm and hear some good music and listen to me share my passion again for what we found in Africa to sink our teeth into as a non-profit. It really is amazing and so not me behind it all.

I’m just a little widow who gave it all up to find my first love again after my life was taken away…finding it amidst one small girl by a waterfall and hundreds of orphans luring me back home.

Go To Whoa a Benefit Concert  to order your ticket and sit front row to a miracle in the making

Take a chance on the impossible

If life is a series of events than who can say each moment is supposed to be happy and free? If hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life then should we always HOPE for more? Can we hope for more than we feel worthy of and why does every step forward feel more impossible than the previous?

You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid…

Is the bible a nice ‘story’ or a test of our faith?  For too long I have played it safe on this blog and have censored my constant questions in my head. It may seem I have it all figured out and my faith is strong but I am reminded daily how I forget easily what faith is. Right now I am censoring my own thoughts so I don’t jinx somehow the results of success. If i begin to doubt myself than others will and then the whole thing falls apart. Power of Attraction!

Are the most successful people always confident in themselves and only ATTRACT success?

Do photos of sad kids ATTRACT hope or despair? I have a longing that Healing Eyes won’t crumble and that it will grow stronger. Longing to help the neglected and forgotten. Longing to see hope return to these little EYES.

…longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
