This afternoon I was brought to tears…
Today I was brought to tears. I am not sure that I can put into words exactly what is going through my mind, but I am going to try.
Over 10 years ago, I found out that there were still people in this world who had never heard the name of Jesus. Ever since then, I have known I wanted to be in missions and have been heading in that direction. First I had to finish middle school, then high school. The Lord has taken me on a journey the past few years, a lot different than I ever expected. Today I finished my 2nd semester of training.
This afternoon, as I was starting some communication with field leadership, starting the process of deciding where I will serve. It hit me. I am getting closer to going. In the next couple of years, Lord willing, I’ll be on the mission field.
And, I am overwhelmed and humbled by the fact that God would allow me to go on this crazy, amazing adventure with Him. Overwhelmed and humbled that He would even consider using me. Overwhelmed and humbled that people want to join me and get behind me in going. Overwhelmed and humbled by the privilege it is to be part of such an amazing thing. Overwhelmed and humbled by the love of a Savior who sacrificed all so that we can have freedom from sin. Today, I am overwhelmed, humbled, and filled with joy because of our Great God.
