So many things...

I want to go so many places.

I have so many dreams.

None of them can be realized at once.

And I am not the one who can make them come true.

I hear Brasil calling my name,

And India beckons me to return.

I want to teach English/help people to learn.

I want to immerse myself in the cultures, the sights, the smells, the love of people that are so different yet so much the same.

I just want to do what God wills.

I just want to be who He wants me to be.

I just want to live.

And love.

And travel.

And learn.

And share.

And experience.


But we can't have it all.

And I don't know what to do.

Hi Ash

Thanks for sharing once again.

You have many things that you are gifted in, and many dreams you want to pursue.

We do pray for you and others in your situation that are still waiting God’s guidance to lead you where He wants you to be.

In the meantime, may He still give you His peace and may you will be sensitive to His leading and the directions He wants you to take.

I have been moving a bunch of files in the last few days and as I was seeking to find something to leave you with today, I found these thoughts
I was going to edit it and just take out what was applicable, but decided to just leave it as it came in.

"We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal." (2 Corinthians 4:18)

God wants you to focus on the good things He has for you, which are greater than the things you can see around you.

Sadly, too many people give up when they face tough times.

They stop expecting anything good to happen.
But the truth is, hardships and trials are opportunities for you to go higher.

Whatever struggles you are going through right now, no matter how large or small, they are could change.

God is working on your behalf.

Your health may not look very good today, but that could change.

You may be out of work today, but that could change.

Your finances may look dismal today, but that could change!

You may be struggling in your relationships or marriage, but that could change too!

No matter what your circumstances might be, you can experience real positive change when you look to God.



Lots of luv NAN
