I've prayed for patience... and God is giving me plenty of opportunities for patience. I've prayed for brokenness, and I feel the breaking. I've prayed to be humbled, and yes, that too...
I prayed for these things because I want my heart to be aligned with His. I want to be poured out in love for Jesus, and for those Jesus loves...
This life is not for my happiness, but for my holiness.
And I am truly grateful... but boy do I need to cling to Him!
Don't worry, it's not that it's "that bad" over here in India. It's that I am that fragile. The culture shock has made everything so much bigger than it was before. I am just not capable of shouldering on with a large emotional load right now...
Which means I have to rely on Him more and more. And therefore, despite "feelings", it is good.
So thank you, Jesus. Sincerely.
What are you thankful for?
