Hey guys! Lauren here! It's been a busy 5 and a half months since arriving in Thailand. Paris and I jumped straight into teaching English with the team here at Outpour Movement, and last month we launched our own English program called SucSeed. I feel the need to list off all the things we've been doing since we got to Mae Sot in order to explain why we haven't been blogging, regularly sending out updates, or staying in contact with all the people we care about, but in the end they would all be excuses. We have been busy, but who hasn't?
I've noticed that my lack of consistency in all those things has run parallel with my lack of reliance on the Father. Isn't it interesting that the further we are away from God the more we believe we must carry the weight of the world on our shoulders? But God sent his son to save the world, to bear the brunt of our burdens and save us from sin; we are set free from the bondage of human expectation and fleshly desires when we trust in Jesus. It's that simple: trust Him.
