I thought it was about time that I updated you with a new blog.
You know, my life is kinda funny. I’ve had it so easy. Things have been handed to me on a silver platter (sometimes literally).
My friend even said to me the other day (in jest) "Maybe God just loves you more than he loves me" He gives me jobs without me even having to apply, I’ve got everything I need, and more. I’ve got parents who love me, and love me through giving me things.
Anyway, my point is.. I think its about time that I learnt how to struggle. I’m about to embark on a new "adventure" where I’ll be moving into one of the poorest areas in Perth. But I have NO idea what it is like for the people I’ll be working with, and living with.
Is it important the I can identify with the people that I want to minister to? YES!
Lord, shift me out of my comfort zone. Make me struggle. Give me everything I need, but only what I need, and make me realise that my need is nearly nothing compared to those around me.
Any advice? How does one "throw away" ones entire life? especially without making my parents feel like they’ve had a kick in the face?
