I can’t believe that I’ve been here for two months already. In some instances the time has flown by, but in other ways it feels like I haven’t been at home in forever! The one thing that I don’t doubt is how good God has been to me. I’m daily being encouraged by people around me and I know that I’m exactly where he wants me. It is an amazing feeling to be right in the center of God’s will for your life, I hope that you feel the same way about where you are at.
He continues to teach me about communication and it has placed a sort of burned on y life to be an excellent communicator. I know that I’m gifted in the area of communication and I want to be some one the constantly shows the character of God through my communication. It is more than the words that I say, it’s the actions that I have and the facial expressions that I use. He has been so gentle with me, walking me through what it looks like to communicate constantly in a way that represents him. To the people on the train, or to the first person that I see at 5:50 am each morning when I don’t want to be awake. If he is living inside of me and I’m obeying him, then my life shouldn’t be a roller coaster, but I should be like him, which is very constant.
Digging deeper into relationship and intimacy with him is an adventure, not knowing what is around the corner, but also knowing that whatever it is, is the best for me and for my life. This has been a good week of learning and understanding more about unity in the body and knowing that when I go on outreach, our unity will be tested as we spend even more time together in close confines. Will see what comes of it! I’m excited to live in Indonesia for 3 months, it is weird to think about, I’ll be the one that sticks out every day and I’ll get plenty of looks from the locals, I think it’ll be good for me.
I think that is all that I have to share for now, I’ll write again soon! Love you all, thanks for your support!
