And I stepped through that open door.
It was as if God said to me, “It's okay to admit your mistakes and regrets and hurts, but don't get stuck there. I am ready now to heal them.”
It was as if God said, “I am not limited by your failures, weaknesses, feelings, thoughts, or fears. Always remember I love you just because I love you, not for any other reason. Nothing can change that fact.”
The time had come to believe that God's everlasting arms never get tired of holding those who are bruised.
The time had come to receive each new morning with joy, as a gift from God.
The time had come to follow this good advice: Don't grow weary of doing what is good and right, because if you don't get discouraged and give up the struggle, ultimately God will bless you for your efforts (Galatians 6:9).
It was as if God said, “Look and listen.
I sent you here to work with extraordinary people.
Some have brilliant minds,
while others are just ordinary people with valuable skills
I‘m using to carry out My work in Colombia.
Every one of them has a good heart
and an uncommon commitment to serve Me
and the indigenous peoples of this land.
The time has come for you to get acquainted with them—
and soon, in a few days, to work alongside them.”
It was as if God said, “I sent you here to work among those who turn the world upside-down” (Acts 17:6).
It was as if God said, “Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit light a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it. . . .” (Wilferd A.Peterson)
