The Cost of Following Him!

I read a blog by a 20 year old Women who has given up everything from her American Life and has made a life in Uganda taking care of the children there. ( ). Her last blog has meant a lot to me. She talks about the COST of following Jesus.

I have struggled the Last week with leaving my family and my Friends, and my comfort. I keep wanting to say God are you sure? Are you sure this is what you want me to do? I know it is, but it is hard to comprehend. But Katie’s Blog was very encouraging to know that God has called us to Count the Cost of what it takes to follow him. I might not be in my comfort zone but I will find the Joy in following him! I am not saying that there wont be those moments were it is going to be tough, but I know God will be with me and that through him I will find the Joy or serving him.

The count down begins: 49 Days til take off!
