    One thing that resonated so strongly during this past month was “in my weakness, His strength & power is made perfect.” (2 Corinthians 12:9) Moving to Korea from an environment with a canopy of trees, fresh air, environmentally safe areas, clear blue skies, and a comfortable home has been a stress on my physical body. I have been constantly getting ill, having respiratory problems, indigestion, a sinus and ear infection, along with a few other discomforts. But like 2 Corinthians 12:9 emphasizes, God’s grace has been sufficient and has allowed me to carry on tasks with so much joy. Just a week and a half ago, I caught a summer flu that caused a sinus infection. My voice was completely gone for 5 days. Then last Friday night, I was suffering from a severe ear infection that followed up with a loss of hearing in my right ear. A part of me wanted to lay it all down. “If I can’t hear in one ear, how am I supposed to do the offering song now?” Side note: the song I did had a background MR that I needed to follow with by listening through my in-ears and so for the music techies out there, if you have instruments that are panned out to the L and R speakers/headphones, then it’s important that you have both L and R in-ears in. Physically I was ill, things seemed almost impossible for me with my condition, BUT. By God’s amazing grace, through His strength I was able to do the task. This compelled me to seek Him and abide in Him because there really was nothing I could do with my own strength. In that time when I sought God in desperation, “GOD! I can’t do it. I can’t do it on my own. But I know You can.” He really did His thing. This isn’t in any way to boast about what I did. Only to boast about the glory & grace of God and how perfect His power is made in you when you seek Him in your weakness. The joy of the Lord doesn’t allow room inside of us for anxiousness, disappointments, complaining, or despair! The things that God does for His children… Seeing it so evident in my life and being reminded of it again during this time was so humbling. #beingvulnerable #augusttestimony #joyoftheLord #Godiseverything  (at Joyful Church)

    Rainbows and covenants and the body. God has been revealing and doing the radical even more at Joyful Church. Seeing signs and confirmations from Him through something like a double rainbow during an appropriate season gives surplus joy like sprinkles added on your soft serve. So #grateful and #blessed. God, anoint my ears like that of Samuel’s to be able to raise up the next generation of Davids. #inyourdwellingplace #covenant #rainbows #restoration #joyfulchurch #jcity

    PARTIV. Wouldn’t be where I am without my community at JCity. I am especially grateful for such a mentor and older sister like her. I love everything about her, even her 잔소리. I like to make her uncomfortble by SHOWERING her with words of love & encouragement. Wouldn’t say them if they weren’t true. Love you!!!❤️❤️❤️ #datewithrachellim #spiritualfamily #gratefulandblessed #mentorandsister #thankyou #firstpictogether #dayfourofvacay @imrachellim  (at Garosu-gil 가로수길)
