Four months ago I woke up and heard an overwhelming voice inside telling me to “go to church”. It had been a long time since I’d gone to service but I listened and went. It was the best decision I’ve made in a very long time. When it was announced that in July 2018 the church would be going on a missions trip to Africa, I again heard that overwhelming voice telling me “go”. It immediately made sense, I’ve always wanted to go to other countries to give back and I’ve always had a desire for one of those places to be Africa.
But then the fears started flooding in... I’m still just building my relationship with God how could I possibly minister to others? How could I possibly afford to go? What would my family, friends, and boyfriend at the time think? I was a little kid when I read the Bible last and I only know a few verses, how could I be good enough to go? How will I know what to say? I just kept hearing the same thing over and over. “Go.”
So #how will I go? God. By putting my faith in Him.
Philippians 4:6 says “Don’t worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything.” I know that I want to serve others, love others, and give back in anyway I possibly can. I have faith that He will take care of the rest.
