some thoughts on leaving for spain tomorrow
i’ve never felt so nervous to go anywhere in my entire life.
it has nothing to do with flying; flying doesn’t faze me, except for takeoff. it has everything to do with the fact that God has made very clear that this trip has nothing to do with my abilities and everything to do with His sovereignty.
& i’m not used to feeling inadequate, you know? i mean, are any of us, really?
so let me tell you a secret: i’m about to leave the states for the tenth time in nine years on my fourth overseas mission trip and i don’t have a clue what i’m doing.
but i do know that’s the place where Jesus works through us, & if that’s all i know for the duration of this trip, i’m more than satisfied.
