And just to add humor to the situation, I realized tonight that these colors, though definitely matching all of those characteristics above, also match one more thing: Africa. These are the colors of Africa--brown and green and blue. And of course, the picture itself. The one I've chosen for right now is of Victoria Falls, a place that I dream of seeing in person one day. It might be in the top five on my list... actually, scratch that... the top 2. I think it would be the only place in the world I would consider bungee jumping. :0)
It's so funny. I know that God will continue to send me all over the world, not because of my own wunderlust but because of the ministry He has called me to--to walk as an evangelist and to be a minister of healing as described in Isaiah 61. People all over the world need to hear the good news about Jesus Christ; they need to experience healing that only the Holy Spirit can give. I welcome that. And I am so incredibly excited about India. But I still can't wait for the day that He sends me back to Africa.
For right now, I will be faithful in this... in this moment... and trust that He will send me back to Africa one day. That is not for now. I WILL NOT "miss" India because I am longing for another land. While I am there, I will be all there.
As of right now, I have no clue where I stand as far as support for India. I'll let you know when I find out something, which should be sometime soon. Thank you so much to all of you who are praying for me, encouraging me, and even sending in financial support. It means everything. For right now, I just wanted to explain why this blog looks so different and post a verse that I found last week. It seems kind of appropriate, given the gorgeous picture above...
"For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light, we see light."
Behold that fountain...
