Boarding passes printed. Bags packed (20 lbs. over the weight limit!). Hugs and a few tears. It is time to head to Ghana.
If you would have asked me five years ago if I would ever do foreign missions work, my response would have made it very clear that I was not interested. As a matter of fact, there were two things that I was “never” going to do; I wasn’t going to go home after I graduated and I wasn’t going to go overseas. When I graduated in 2007, I spent two months in Ghana and then went home for the next three years! Never say “NEVER” when it comes to the will of God for your life and ministry.
I have to tell you, I am not sorry that I did what I was “never” going to do. There have been times of frustration, that’s certain. There have been many times that I thought I had missed the will of God. Through it all the Lord has taught me lessons that I never would have learned if I didn’t do what I was “never” going to do.
It has been said, “Let God plan your life because you will under plan it.” It has certainly proved true in my life. And now, if you will excuse me, I have another date with “never”.
What is your “Never”?
P.S. I hope to be posting soon from Ghana. Of course, that will depend on my access to the internet and other factors. Thank you for all of your prayers and support!
