She sinned much therefore she loved much.How do you wrap your mind around this?

I belong.

The past few weeks have been crazy busy, but at the same time a great period of growth and being stretched. I learnt so much and God was just so present, showing me that He is with me no matter what, but it was tough. Here is a little something that sums up what was happening inside.

Stay in Him

Stay in Him
My first post and we've been on this journey for over 3 weeks. We've been super busy with #imagine and the opening of the Jeffreys Bay high school Global Leadership Academy. We've been learning a lot about serving and with what heart you are serving.Our vision is Live, Serve & Grow. We have been challenged to live together as a team doing everything together. You can imagine that with 6 girls living in a small space. I can't lie. It's been great. We have a lot of fun but it has it's challenges.I feel like this is a great time of being shaped and equipped for community living and what it looks like. A struggle for me is that I become dependent on the people around me to bring me closer to God. Feed of their journey and experiences. This is obviously a problem...We had a long term missionary come talk to us about what she is doing in Jordan and it was very inspiring to hear how she was called to go there and she made me ask a question to myself, if the Lord calls me to go somewhere will I be willing to listen and let go of the people and do what He wants me to do? To be honest I would hate to leave the people behind I've been walking a journey with but then I have to ask the question whether I don't want to leave them behind because I am depending on them to keep my relationship going with Jesus.Something in my heart needs to change and I should just take the time to sit down and spend time with Him to build a real relationship so that when He does call me to go somewhere that I will be dependent on Him for everything. My focus should be on Him and no one else should influence my decisions when He calls me to do something.Community is important but it can become dangerous when you have the wrong heart about it.#

China

China
A beginning and an end.The obvious is that this was our first country and that this was the beginning of our journey.From the onset of our journey God has come and shown me the joy in serving other's, specifically those that serve Him where others dare not stay.The end is less obvious and, more...An end to self deception, an end to self pity and most importantly an end to past fixation. I  had been clutching like a corner stone.Wearing a grudge like a crown, unable to forgive.But not anymore!I can gladly say that a paradoxical mind shift has come upon me. I have more patience, I can truly smile once more and I mostly think before I speak. Still under construction.Thanks be to God. I gave away the stone and there is only One who wears the crown.I would​ say that I woefully regret the time it has taken me to get to this point but then ofcourse I would not be at this point.God has shown me so much during such a short period of time and I am yet to grasp the magnitude of what's ​to come. My physical bag is getting heavier and heavier but I'm glad to say that my spiritual bag is getting lighter by the day.I let go.#

Church at the crossroad

Church at the crossroad

A crossroad is a place where you are forced to stop, reassess and consider the direction you are going. Our team's time at the church in Al Mafraq, which means crossroads, was such a time. Each one of us stood at a crossroad. We had time to stand still, take in the view (which was beautiful by the way) and consider which way we are going. God used this time to lay foundational truths in our hearts. He took each one of us on an adventure in finding our identity as His children, depending on Him and drawing closer in intimacy with Him. God provided abundantly. No doubt further on in our journey, we will reflect on our time in Al Mafraq with many fond memories, constant reminders of God's goodness and grace. Our time at the church consisted of volunteering at the soccer and sewing programs, assisting at the school, helping out in english classes, going on distrubutions and visiting the Syrian refugees in their homes. Mafraq is truly a strategic 'crossroad' for the refugees fleeing their country and seeking refuge in Jordan. Our team valued the moments with the families. Through their generosity and friendliness, God taught us humility. We experienced first hand what Jesus means when He speaks of unconditional love. We didn't only learn how to receive it, but how to love others in the same way. What Jesus did on the cross suddenly means so much more. He loves us and continues to show us grace. God is busy moving in the hearts of people from all nations around the world. We have an opportunity to make ourselves available for Him to work through us. We love others simply because He first loved us. Our time in Mafraq is drawing to an end. The people touched our hearts so much with their hospitality and we are thankful for the time we got to have fellowship with them. We can truly say that God works in mysterious but incredible ways as He pursues our hearts with unmerited favour. We're looking forward to seeing how He's weaving our lives together in a colourful tapestry to His glory.
