21 Days of Hope - Day 9
21 Days of Hope – Day 9
In 2014, my family moved to Ndola, Zambia to serve as full-time missionaries. It was a hard year for me. I had 4 little boys and I had never lived abroad. I didn’t know what to expect. I was homesick, afraid, and awkward. I didn’t understand how things worked here; I struggled to communicate; and I felt a lot of uncertainty about whether this new life was even going to work.
I started to make some conclusions about my circumstances based on my feelings. I concluded that I was not a good missionary. I said to myself, l wasn’t made for this. I can’t do this.” I even too, started to conclude that maybe I wasn’t even a Christian!
Thankfully God intervened in my emotional downward spiral and whispered to me that He saw potential in me that I had never realized. He asked me to stop making conclusions based on my feelings and to start making my conclusions on His promises and what’s possible with Him.
I started to change the conversation in my head. I began declaring God’s word over me. “Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new person. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 TPT
God sees something in you that you have never seen before. He is using the challenges of this time to release a new potential in you. You are a brand-new creation! And anything is possible with God!
