I recently had the opportunity to listen to a very powerful and humble woman talk about the conditions in Malawi . . . and I have to admit, it ruffled my feathers.
As some of you know, I’m heading to Malawi and Zambia in May 2016. As I listened to this woman’s stories, it unnerved me and the lies started flooding my mind.
You can’t do this.
Who are you to think you can be part of this team?
What could you possibly offer to these people in Africa?
It’s going to be too difficult for you. You won’t be able to keep up.
You’re too old to do this.
You’re so comfortable in your little house on the water. Stay there.
This morning, when I saw this on FB, I responded with a resounding, “YES” in my heart.
No question, I have concerns and questions but more importantly, I have a strong sense that this is where I’m supposed to be next May – on the WOW Counselling Team (check them out on FB – Out of Silence: Wow Counselling Team) and in the hands of a faithful, loving and caring God.
There will be moments when I tremble — these are the times when I need to fix my eyes on Him.
The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe.
Proverbs 18.10 NASB
