I need Africa...
I saw this video posted on a friends blog today. Boy does God know when I need a kick in the rear!
I have been moping around for the past couple of weeks because MY life isn't going the way I wanted it to go! I have been subconsciously yet fervently looking for something to "obsess" about (a little game I play to avoid depression... hence the frogs... and the earrings... and food... and sleep).
Anyway, I had almost forgotten the opportunity I was given. I need Africa more than Africa needs me!
I need to remember the joy in the face of the child with nothing. I need to remember the excitement in the eyes of the man hearing the Gospel the first time. I need to remember the woman graciously receiving a gift from a stranger. So many beautiful memories I was given on my trip to Angola.
How could I have become so jaded in such a short time? They have so little and I have so much! How could I forget how blessed I am?
I am ashamed at my lack of faith! I know that MY God has a plan for me and I need to relax and follow Him.
In the following weeks I am going to post some of my favorite photos of my trip to Luanda, Angola. I hope they give you a glimmer of the hope they gave me.
