I'm reading a book in Spanish regarding how to be a woman of excellence and this was one of the passages that was shared. At first I thought to myself that it's a lot of work to represent this scripture. I do try to think how I can apply scripture to my life. Then, I remembered that all I need to do is ask for help. It is possible though I do know that there will be times when I will fall and make mistakes.
There was a situation that happened on Friday at the hogar and I was called higher, to step up and be stronger. There was sadness and fear in my heart. Things were resolved, but there's so much to still grow in. I will admit that I feel a little overwhelmed, but this is good for me. There are things that I struggled with prior to moving here and I feel like I need to be here to grow in my character, learn about myself and be molded into the woman God desires me to become.
Today I went to a small town past San Jose del Golfo with Reina and a few of her family members to bring flowers where my Reina's dad is buried. Life is so short and it was a good reminder to express my love to the people who mean so much to me.
Driving through the mountains and seeing God's creation was mesmerizing! I took a picture, but it didn't give it any justice to what my eyes was able to see. The hills reminded me so much of my favorite scripture in Psalms 121:1-2 which talks about looking up to the hills as the writer asks, "Where does my help come from? My help comes from The Lord; the maker of heaven and earth." God wants me to share in the inheritance of His kingdom and what I need to do is ask for His guidance because He is willing and wanting to help me.

It's Monday and I arrived at the hogar this evening. I am ready to ask for help and start the week :)
