While the boys are off at the men's prison (no females allowed at this facility), the girls are enjoying a sabbath. Jade and Michelle have been going non stop since they arrived in January and I am thankful to have a day to slow down and get adjusted. I've caught up on some journaling and much needed Jesus time. I just can't believe I'm in Africa! Seriously, you can ask the others how many times I've said that to them and myself.
I thought I'd share a verse I enjoyed meditating on today-- Lamentations 3: 21-25
21 But this I call to mind,and therefore I have hope:
22 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 "The LORD is my portion," says my soul,
"therefore I will hope in him."
25 The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him.
Praise the Lord for the hope we have in him and that when we seek him he is more than enough!
