“Everyone has oceans to fly, as long as they have the heart to do it. Is it reckless? Maybe, but what do dreams know of boundaries?”- Amelia Earhart
Especially the ones our Creator breathes into the chambers of our heart.- Kimberly Smith
Not one day has gone by where I haven’t thought, “I am actually here”. It feels surreal on some days that I have quit my job, been a gypsy for two years and I don’t know when for sure I will be returning home. When those thoughts come they are quickly followed by a hug from a new friend here, a child that needs to just be held, or a conversation that allows my heart to feel the hurt and desperation of so many of my friends here. Then gratefulness flows. He has moved mountains for me to be here. I have friends and family that have helped me accomplish my dream that I see now has no boundaries.
I do not feel like a missionary, I just feel like a girl who Jesus knew a long time ago what He was preparing me for. Praise the Lord not by my might but His grace I have walked into what He has been preparing me for since I was in my mom’s womb. The best part is, it’s not over. There are still journeys ahead, hardships to endure but I now know this…all you have to do is say yes to the little things, not always the big ones. Just a small simple Yes in the day to day, just a quiet whisper of the voice of my Lord.
One of my best friends just shared some words the Lord has given her and I just keep saying them over and over…
“Surely I am loved beyond compare, present in the storm and every moment You are here. I worship you my God. I’ll glory in Your presence all my days, mercies every morning, I am constantly amazed. Father have my heart, for my heart is yours.”
