Haiti Project Blog Post- 15
Haiti Blog Post 15- January 19, 2012
Today I feel broken. My body dreams of a hot shower, the bug bites are more than I can bear, and I am weak. God has clearly called me to Haiti. To experience this country in ways I never thought possible, to be with His children in Haiti, and soak in their lives and their hearts. But, today I feel broken. I have been praying for God to give me strength and to remind me that Jesus himself went through so many advertises all in the name of God. I can do this; I have God on my side. But today, I am searching for meaning and understanding.
It has been a long three weeks. Although I have loved being here and understanding a country and a way of living that is so different than my own, I long for what is comfortable to me. Maybe that is the point, to get out of my comfort zone and to be reminded that so many have so little. When I complain about not having a partner in my life or even complain that there is no hot water. I reminded that these things are so insignificant. The people of Haiti live with so little, they have treated me like gold, and everyday with a huge smile and a warm heart. Dear God, thank you for introducing me to these kind and special people.
This isn’t a post to make you worry or feel sorry for me. It is just real and truthful about my brokenness in this day.
