"There’s something to be said for patience
So hold on to what you know is sacred
Don’t let your only dream be taken
And cashed in for everything you’ve hated"
- Jill Phillips, Sacred
patience is hard... makes my heart hurt, makes me frustrated, makes me sad, makes me mad
i know, beyond a shaddow of doubt, that God did not put my passion for Africa in my heart 23 years ago for nothing...
i pray, dream, hope, wish, desire, yearn, long, burden, ache for africa (all encompassed many aspects into one simple word... africa)
everything i have hated... the american dream... yet i feel like my life is the american dream a husband, 3 kids, 2 dogs, a house we are building, a mini-van to be, and the average church.
im so sick of the mundaneness in my life... there is SOOO much more to life than what im living, whats going on in the little bubble around me
the purpose in life as a Christian is to advance the Gospel to the ends of the Earth... what am i doing about it?
