It's 2010, the end of March, and my 2nd year in Greece is speedily coming to an end. I have learned a lot, believed a lot, cried a lot, laughed a lot. And it's not over yet. Whoever thought that with one simple step like buying a one way ticket you could completely alter your life, your family, your friends, your dreams, your goals? I guess I am the same girl who at age 5 wanted to be an actress. But then I am at the same time someone God has re-created in the midst of prayer and trial and love. This nation is stamped on my heart, these people are my fellow comrades in arms, this city has made me alive.
I feel like I'm almost starting at ground zero again. Need to believe for provision, need to get crafty, need to fight that old enemy that I'm just ordinary. I've started a cd project which will be my first real cd. I'm blessed to work with a man who's dedicated and excited about the process. In the words of my spiritual father, "You can't be an over-comer unless you have something to overcome."
Some time ago I felt like the Lord told me to spend a lot of time in the John's. I'm not sure if He meant all of them but I've been reading a lot of 1 John. You can't go wrong with love. Love at all times. It's not easy learning to love like You. But if there's one thing that can change things, one thing that can turn a relationship around, one thing that can break walls, it's love. And even if it hurts like hell...you better love. Out of that, your reward is love. A heart big in the ability to love is unique, it's what God is after.
1 am and I am off to bed...
