for a country that isn’t even mine.
For countries I haven’t even been to, yet.
In the last three weeks I’ve found myself revisiting the pictures, studying my Spanish, and praying for the children I know and even for the ones I have yet to meet.
I’m studying different third world countries and their needs, wanting to go and be a part of it all.
And then through it all, I’m trying to sit at the feet of the Lord, patiently waiting for him to clearly say once again, “Go.”
I want so much more than a one week trip, more than just 3-4 hours a day teaching stories and playing games.
I long to be their friend….
A part of their family.
To be someone they can trust, who comes alongside and loves with them….
And for the first time in our life as a family, God has every one of us in a place where we would let go of whatever he asked…all to say “yes” to whatever it is he has planned.
Our hearts are ready.
We have no plan, except the one to follow God.
And now that I’ve had a taste of what that plan could be for our life….
I crave it more and more.
I found this quote the other day when I was researching details on starting our Dominican Orphanage, and it gave me such incredible peace, that I had to share…
For it is now the life my family and I are living…
And we’re starting with the Dominican Orphanage.
