After church, despite all the hustle and bustle of preparing for my trip to Uganda, I decided to relax at a coffee shop in town and just read to calm my mind just for an hour or so. I seem to be filled with excitement and fear. Now since this mornings sermon had a lot to do with fear I feel as if I shouldn’t be fearful of this trip. I know God is in control of every aspect of my travels. But without the fear I am having I would be going into this trip as if I were making it happen, which is not so. There is a fear of the unknown, but God will calm that fear. My fear is not keeping me from going. I will over my fear of whatever is ahead of me. God has been faithful throughout the preparation, nothing will stop him now. I am so lucky to serve a God that will prove faithful and allow me to overcome my fears and grow in him, as his child.
Wednesday will be here before I know it. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for my team and the people we come in contact with. I know I will be changed and matured during this trip. Only God knows what is ahead, and there is beauty in that.
“Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved…”
