Grace… July 7, 2007

me & the girls...I was in the room when Mike was speaking with someone and he said “The question you have to ask is do you like the person that you are in Namibia or are you in love with the country of Namibia.”  Well, I can easily answer that… it has nothing to do with liking the person that I am in Namibia.  I tend to feel quite inadequate and that I can not please anyone.  I tend to become more edgy and aggravated.  I tend to feel quite isolated at times, which occurs because of the landslide from all the other feelings.  Yea… I tend to think that a lot of it I bring on myself… yet feel unable to escape. 

 

 

 

What I do know is that I love Namibia. I have fallen in love with the people, the countryside and all of God’s creation. This is where I feel God the most. He speaks clearer to me here than I could ever imagine back in the states. I become more and more amazed by His grace as I listen to stories of heartbreak and brokenness as He breaks me. He lets me know when I am doing exactly what He brought me here to do. I see it in the eyes of the teenagers that I speak with. I see it in the joy and pain of the principal’s face as she speaks of the work she is doing at the school and the reality of being unable to change some of the biggest issues that she faces… and in her desire to try.

 

“For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms.” ~Ephesians 1:15-20
