8 days to Haiti. We are at the point where every emotion is hitting hard. My heart is thrilled and mourning not being near family and friends. I am at times fearful of all the unknown. I prayed for this, longed for this time for over 13 years- although I never imagined it would look quite like this. What new truth about God will I come to love and cling to? What aspect of His character will He show so strong and beautiful? How will He meet us, unlike anything we’ve experienced thus far? How often will my girls get to see God moving mountains and His Gospel changing lives?! This adventure is beckoning us to dive deeply and boldly into what God has.
Like I said in a previous post-
When the Lord calls you it in no way means it will be easy…it will be messy, hard and exhausting but so worth it- because as a dear friend reminded me yesterday, Jesus is worth it! The call isn’t necessarily about where you are or what you are doing but about knowing, obeying and being near Jesus. His nearness is our good.
