This week, some things just need to remain unsaid, but to say the least, this week came with its challenges and trials. However, while many struggles were present I was still able to see the light through them and learn many new things about people and about culture.
Being on the mission field I am always reminding myself to remain in constant prayer, and although I struggle with doing so. A huge theme for me this week was patience, my buttons were pushed and I was tested, I was stretched to the limit and I felt disrespected and mistreated. My patience was tested and I could have blown up at any moment and honestly if it were not for the spirit within me I would have. I found myself asking God for constant patience.
I also discovered some really cool things about myself, and that is when I am tested my first instinct is to call on the Lord. I realized that when struggles strike, especially new struggles, I am calling on the Lord. God has taught me so much throughout my life and I am grateful that I am able to see the fruit of my sanctification.
I also realized that I grew up in a very protected household, which is not a bad thing, in fact, I am eternally grateful for where I was placed, but now as I am getting out into the world I am noticing what sin has really done to creation. Sin has completely devastated peoples lives and to see the effects that it has had, hurts me.
Until next time!
