Stories Are Important

I know, I have written multiple posts on Africa. But, today I was scrolling through the notes on my phone and found something that I typed up the same week I got back. I still miss the amazing people I met, yet it is so clear that God needs me here right now. So, I felt the need to share this short little note with you.

"Tonight I am lying awake wondering why I was born in the US. Wondering why I have always taken my education for granted, why I have never really understood what it felt like to have a greater appreciation for things, why I don't love people the way these children in Uganda loved me. But I am going to just rest in knowing that God has me where we needs me."

Now, these are questions that I still do not necessarily know the answers to. However, it is evident that God is going to work in Uganda whether I am there or not. Never get down on yourself because of where you are physically, you are exactly where he needs you. Learn from things but rest knowing that sometimes things are out of your control.
