Because it is all about Eternity. And it is about letting go of my self, my wants, my desires, so that Jesus, in all of it, may become greater!
You have read of changes to come. You have seen this place grow. You have heard whispers of what is in store. But I will say it all now.
We're incredibly focused. We're not exactly all sorted out, but we're focused. And like what Rylie wrote, we want eternity written on our hearts, so we set our eyes on Him and go out to the world.
In August, I'll be joining a few on a trip to countries to witness first had the work that is going on in the fight against Human Trafficking. And it is a trip that has me fighting every single fear my mind can process. But as I allow my mind to rest in eternity, nothing from here on can destroy my soul. Yet as excited as I am for this opportunity, I know this will be the most heart changing experience I will have ever faced.
And we aren't about just the three of us anymore (not sure if we really ever were), but we're moving beyond that. We have encountered others that have pushed our hearts to give bigger and love more, and we are excited to work alongside each of them as we aim to respond to His command to seek justice, encourage the oppressed, defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case for the widow. [Isaiah 1:17]
So we'll do it together. United in the forefront, and trusting in each other's love, we cherish these times we have to laugh in safety and run in comfort, because the road ahead does not look pretty. But thank you Jesus, that wherever He is, Beauty is all that follows.
And I have had time to find comfort in some of the darkness in my heart. I've remained quiet as I listened to the Truth be told back into the wounds of my spirit. And from that I feel all the more joyful in the adventures we are about to embark on. Because in the end, and from here to eternity, it is all about less of me, so that He may become greater!
