I have been in Kenya for over a week, and it feels like I’ve been here forever. Memory isn’t fleeting. Not when each day I’m here brings new questions, and reminds me to revisit the answers God has (already) given.
My mindset is adjusting, my heart stretching…again.
“I know the plans I have for you.”
I don’t need to know as long as God knows. It is for my good, even without the details. Maybe that’s part of His mercy for me; if I find out, and I have not received the grace I need, I may stray and give up (hope).
When one journeys, one just walks. And that is how it is like for me here. Amidst the many questions I had, it was simple for me. I will GO.
The road is long, and I pray I keep going. Along the way I’ll come to understand. Today, I will be still…and KNOW that God is God.
How else to cap off the previous days than celebrate why I do what I do?
“Today you will be fishers of men.”
Who am I that the Lord wills the salvation of others through me? And it is a reminder: because He wants to save me.
This is the journey. From my head to my heart, from my heart to my hands, from my hands to the soles of my feet. I am walking a road less travelled. Unless I walk, I will die.
And if I perish, in my spirit, how will others know there is a wonderful life that awaits them. After all, we all yearn for heaven.
I will rely on grace & mercy as I move along.
