Nicaragua

Last month, my best friend and I went to Nicaragua with Angie Honeycutt (The Power of One Ministry).  Our goal?  To share the love of Jesus with everyone we encountered.  I believe we succeeded and that God was pleased.  While there, I wrote several poems.  Here’s one…
 
Hungry.
For so much more than food.
Their eyes speak of a hard life.
Eager.
For love, attention.
For the hope we carry within.
Excited.
That someone from another country
Cares enough to help.
Leery.
For so many have come before us
And left them feeling empty.
Hopeful.
That we speak the truth
And that there is life in You.

Tonight, I’d like to ask you a question.  Where is your mission field?  It’s different for everyone….but we all have one.  If you haven’t discovered yours yet, I’d like to challenge you to ask God to show you.  He is faithful and will answer.
 
Be blessed and tell someone that you love them!

About meanderingswithgod

I Write. It’s what I do. It’s as vital a part of me as breathing. I write when I’m happy. I write when I’m sad. I write when I don’t understand. Or when I understand a little too clearly. I write when God’s speaking to me. And when I’m speaking to Him. And, more often than not, it comes out in rhythm and rhyme. In my words, you’ll find laughter and tears, pain and triumph, confusion and clarity. In my words, if you bother to search, you’ll find me. So, it is with both excitement and trepidation that I begin. This blog. This writing that’s been so long coming. My words. God’s words. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to tell the difference. Mine are clumsy, His are eloquent. I hope, as you read my verbal meanderings, that you’ll be blessed and find yourself searching for Him.
