This last week was an interesting one. Nothing super exciting happened, but sometimes I feel like I am losing it just a little bit. But that is ok!
Anyways, more importantly read this:
"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." Romans 8:18
I like this scripture a lot.
First, I enjoy that is says "reckon" because it seems like Paul was a cowboy. Second I think that right now's pains are really nothing in the grand scheme and that our grand potential is already in us. We don't have wait till death to start revealing our grand potential.
Isn't that awesome!
Anyways, food for thought.
It is about 5AM here and I woke up at 3:30, so I am very tired but I hope you know that I know this work is true and that Christ is our redeemer for all of those everyday sufferings!
I have been noticing the small and simple moments that are so joyful to me. I find those moments are what make a mission a wonderful experience.
It is easy to focus on the wrong things here, but when you focus on the love for the people as your drive, the Lord will let you feel His love and those moments will happen more often.
