When most people feel the need to be refreshed they don’t head to Dakar, Senegal. Maybe it’s just me, but I consider waterfalls or large bodies of water as a place to be refreshed. But isn’t it just like the Lord to refresh me in a hot, dry and dusty place?
Only He can refresh me in a desert place.
We headed to Africa already tired. And perhaps a little dried out.
As we walked thru the streets of Dakar, of course there was dirt, dust, crumbling sidewalks and trash.
But was that all that my eyes could see?
Or could they look up… to faces. If I am always looking down, dirty feet are all I will see. But in looking up I will see faces.
Faces of people.
As the very life of Jesus fills me up, my eyes will no longer be blind to all that God would have me see. –Casie
