Preparing to go on a new adventure that will start this week. My mind wants to know what is it going to be like? what will I experience? What will happen from this trip? I have many things to do before I go….my mind goes in many directions. I am asking the Lord for an upgrade (I am on the standby list) for my Chicago to Delhi, Delhi to Chicago legs of the trip so I can sleep. I want to be rested so I can mentally/physically function and not be achy when I get there (Fibromyalgia much better but not completely gone).
As a visionary, I see the power of God at work in so many ways in so many places around our world. We are entering a time we have studied and read about, but are not sure of how it will all happen. I can either stress out about my life, our country, our world, or do what I am called to do following Him. Keeping the faith is drawing closer to Him, knowing that being used by Him, intimacy with Him, is what I desire the most. Keeping the faith is not persevering through difficult times until I get what I need or want so I can feel happy, relieved, settled again. I am realizing more and more that expectations of work, family, and life is not what my generation thought it would be….
How honored I am that I can get to know the Hindu women in India, who have received their first micro-loan this year to start a business. Most are single Moms who want to feed their children and give them education. I am honored to get to know the students at the Good Smaritan School in Delhi, who have come from the streets, and are on the path to a better life through Him.
