Pressing On

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Can we talk a minute about nerves. 

Today, I'm not worried about flying or being picked up on time or where I'm going to sleep or what I'll eat. If I'm honest I'm really nervous about meeting this girl! 

Beautiful her. 

We made a promise to hold her hand and do life with her from now until well, whenever God says stop. I'll meet she and her family in a few days. I feel like a teenager myself, hoping she'll like me, that she'll be receptive, that her Mamma will know I'm not there to try and win her over with the little American treasures I brought, but that I want to learn with them and from them too. I pray she'll know how often we have prayed over her and her other family. I pray that she will hug my neck and not let go first. I pray that I'll be free to be who I am, and that His love will rush out of our meeting and that we will all be the better for reaching, risking and daring to take a chance in one another. 

Courage isn't the absence of fear, but the. Ability to push through it. Here's to pressing through deep, haunting insecurities and walking bravely into the next season of life.... In Rwanda. Someone pinch me! 

Love and Blessings!
