This is it...

Well, the countdown's on and there's just hours to go before I begin my journey to Ukraine. As the hour draws nearer I am feeling a mix of emotions; excitement, joy, awe at God's goodness, a little sadness, apprehension... During my last trip to Africa the rose colored glasses came off and for the first time I feel like I got an honest look at what missions really is - a privilege, an adventure, a joy and yet at the same time a challenge and a sacrifice. Going into this trip I am more aware than ever of the challenges I am about to face, some known, many unknown to me at this time. And yet I find myself being filled to the brim with such great expectation, more so than ever before. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I've never felt so certain that this is exactly where God wants me.

Over the past few weeks, the words of this song have been ringing through my heart and I wanted to share them with you as my final post from this side of the world...

Let The Waters Rise - by Mikeschair

...I am willing to go
Where you want me to
God, I trust You

There's a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise
If You want them to
I will follow You
I will follow You
I will follow You

I will swim in the deep
'Cuz You'll be next to me
You're in the eye of the storm
And the calm of the sea
You'll never out of reach

God, You know where I've been
You were there with me then
You were faithful before
You'll be faithful again
I'm holding Your hand

There's a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise
If You want them to
I will follow You
I will follow You
I will follow You

God Your love is enough
You will pull me through
I'm holding onto You
God Your love is enough
I will follow You
I will follow You
 
There's a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise
If You want them to
I will follow You
I will follow You
I will follow You
