{Hygge}



This one word basically sums up who I am as a human being.
It's a Danish word that doesn't exactly translate but 
the concept can be understood and felt deeply by those around you.

So the last couple months I've taken a few trips to Denmark and the Lord has been doing incredible things with me there and stirring my heart for what He's already doing! I've connected with old friends and made loads of new ones who all want to see the Kingdom of God released in a new and powerful way over their nation. It's been so encouraging every time I've gone as I see more pieces of the puzzle coming together and am seeing answers to prayers I've prayed coming together before my eyes!


This is a little story of an answer to prayer from my last trip!

In April, when I first went to Denmark, I met up with the YWAM Copenhagen team to encourage them, pray with them, get to know them and hear their vision of what the Lord was doing with their team in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. As we chatted and I heard of their long term vision to see Danes (Danish people) come to know Jesus through street evanglism and start up home churches from those who've received the Lord, it became abundantly clear that they needed more WORKERS! 
The harvest is sooo ripe and plentiful in Denmark, but they need people who are passionate and called to Copenhagen to join their team! So I did what I knew best, which is always to PRAY.  We probably spent at least 2 hours praying together for the Lord to bring the right people to join them... and a month later when I returned to Denmark, I met Nico.



  I met Nico through a friend at Hillsong church in Copenhagen and it was almost like I was hearing the words I had prayed a month earlier coming out of his mouth! Nico has just done his DTS and ONE MONTH EARLIER (when YWAM Copenhagen was praying for more people) the Lord spoke to Nico about pioneering YWAM Copenhagen and gave him a long term vision to be there, ministering, worshipping and telling people about Jesus! Even though Nico is Danish, he didn't even know that there was a team already in Copenhagen and so when he returned home from his DTS he was able to connect with them! He has vision to do another YWAM school to become more equipped and then return to Copenhagen and continue ministry there!



Nico is just one answer to the prayers we've been praying! 
{If you feel like you're called to Denmark too, I'd love to connect you with the team there!}



Now. This is why I shared that story with you. 
Because, I too, feel like the Lord is doing something with me & Denmark.
What exactly it is, I'm still figuring out, but it's gonna be awesome!

See, I was strolling down the High Street in Harpenden and mulling over what the Lord was doing because when I moved to England, I really felt that the Lord was calling me here long term and I don't believe this has changed, however, there's a bit of an unexpected twist--- this whole Denmark thing. As I'm chatting with the Lord about England and Denmark, He puts such a peace in my heart that yes, England is where I'm suppose to be and yes, there's things He's doing with me in Denmark. What all the practicalities look like, is really beyond me, but I know that my heart is to be open and obedient to what the Lord wants to do in both countries! This all collided for me as I noticed this little shop in town that I'd never been in even though I loved what I saw from the store front window. I finally took a minute and went inside and the first thing that drew my attention was this simple scented candle! 



To my complete surprise... {Hygge} was scripted on the front of this candle!

This lovely little shop, Mint Velvet, had been started by 3 English women who had based their fashion designs off of Danish style! I felt like it was a little something from the Lord to assure me that some how these two nations are connected and I'm to be a part of it in some way! In my excitement of the Lord speaking in the little things and how much this concept really hits home for me... I shared it with some close friends of mine this afternoon! Once we finished up together and were walking back to the car, past Mint Velvet, we decided to pop in so I could show them what I had been talking about! Little did I know that they had conspired to buy me this beautiful {Hygge} candle! What a blessing to have a God & friends who care about the little things in life, that all come together to create a giant lifelong adventure!
