In less than a week I will be in El Salvador with a group of ladies and Compassion International. While there we will be visiting a brand new child development center and I will also get to meet Ericka who is one of my sponsor children.
I’m soooooooooooooo excited about this new Journey I will be adventuring out on but at the same time I can’t allow myself to think about it too hard because this is something that for me would normally be waaaaaaaaaay out of my comfort zone!
I can barely believe that in just a few short days I will be flying
alone … with God … across the country to an airport I’ve never stepped foot in, meeting up with people I’ve never met before and then hopping on another plane and heading off to El Salvador! I have never been your social type of person, I’m awkward around strangers and actually a bit of a loner.
I also know that while I’m there I may see some things that might be hard to see and though I know I won’t want to see those things I also know from past experience that its in the hard places that I tend to see God the most.
It seems like I keep finding myself in these so unlike me sort of settings more and more often here lately and like I said in the beginning I can’t let myself think about it to hard, which is what I just did! I now I have a few butterflies fluttering around in my stomach but I still feel really really excited about going on this journey and I can’t wait to see what God has planned!
All of this excitement is why this week my Music Monday song is ‘I Will Follow’ by Chris Tomlin
It’s really amazing the places you will find yourself when let God lead.
Now its time to get to the packing… I have to figure out how to get all of this stuff into one suitcase!
