I’ve been wanting to update you all for a while as I know a lot of you eagerly anticipate more updates and news about Africa. (or any other adventure I’m taking.) However, recently God has been doing so much work in my heart and has rearranged my plans and molded them into His and it seems as though every time I go to write this all down to share with you all, my words fail to adequately express what’s happening and the pages of my journal are once again left blank.
My trip was booked, money was being saved, my heart was dreaming and so eager to be back on the red dirt He has called me to. All this was happening at a time of change in my heart, in my personal life, and in my spiritual journey with The Lord.
Things began to happen and I began asking The Lord if this was the right time to go. And He answered. And it wasn’t the answer I wanted or even expected.
With that being said, I will no longer be going back to Africa in May. My heart is heavy but with tears in my eyes I can tell you it is also SO full of His faithfulness. Faithfulness in the ‘yes' and faithfulness in the ‘no.' Here, right now is where my calling is and every day He is making it more clear why.
I know i will go back. Many, many more times, but until than, He’s here with me. Shepherd of my soul, lead me on.
