Taking time to reflect on my journal entries before, during & after Guatemala has been almost just as amazing as the trip itself!
Seeing my anxious heart obey the Lord even though I was terrified, be covered right away by his peace and then richly rewarded with lifelong friends that I feel like I've known for years. This has reopened my eyes to the true love of Christ. He will not ask you to do anything that he has not already planned out & knows the end result of.
To think I was so afraid in the beginning that I almost wanted to back out.. it definitely crossed my mind. Run. It's too scary.
But boy am I so glad that I chose to trust your plan Abba!! 🙌🙌 Praises.
“The atoms of our bodies are traceable to stars that manufactured them in their cores and exploded these enriched ingredients across our galaxy, billions of years ago. For this reason, we are biologically connected to every other living thing in the world. We are chemically connected to all molecules on Earth. And we are atomically connected to all atoms in the universe. We are not figuratively, but literally stardust.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson
