Today we travel home after an incredible experience. As I write this final Honduras blog post, I can only imagine what God has done through, and perhaps even more importantly, in me this week. As this verse from First Peter says, we are God’s chosen people, His created workmanship, and it is for this reason that I am confident I will have had the opportunity to be a light to the people of Honduras, showing others His goodness. Yet, my fear is that it will end there. That the cares and concerns of “normal” life will become the proverbial basket that Jesus warns us not to put our light under.
Pray: I have no idea what it will look like to keep the light of this experience burning. Perhaps it will be to resume writing novels that communicate God’s love and salvation, as well as selling them to raise funds for compassion-based ministries. If so, then please pray that God will provide the inspiration and energy needed to carry on. Or, perhaps God will have something totally new in store for me. Either way, please pray that I will have the discernment to hear God’s call and the courage to pursue it with abandon.
¡Deja que tu luz brille!
