I’ve never left the States.
Not even once.
I grew up a small town girl with small town dreams. I went to college to get married and well, I did…
In the middle of my senior year of college.
Within 9 months, we were pregnant with our first and then we had a baby every 18 months for 9 more years.
The bulk of my adult life has been spent caring for our little people and one man.
But there is a sliver of me that’s not a small town girl with small town dreams.
And I sort of like this sliver because I think it’s the part of me that God is beginning to move.
I wake to God’s fingers slipping through the blinds that hang in every window of this home and this morning, I live in the smallness of the life I’ve been given on Avent street.
And I relish it because God is not bound by zip codes or streets or oceans deep and we live in a space of time where the whole world resides in the palm of our hand.
We live in a world where the small town girl with small town dreams and a small tribe of people can reach out and lift up another mama- all the way across the ocean.
With one click of a mouse.
And with one click of a mouse, this small town girl invites God to awaken the part of her that He can use to change her world.
This morning, I’m joining the community of writers over at (in)courage as we celebrate 4 years of ministry.
And I’m inviting you to join in the celebrating…right from the palm of your hand.
This fall, (in) courage will be partnering with Pure Charity to begin a 5 phase “gifting” to Mercy House, a home in Kenya that seeks the welfare of teen mamas and their babies. You can click here to read more about the issues and vision of this ministry.
During this first phase, we are inviting you to help this organization purchase a much needed van. The Mercy House has 12 moms, 12 kids, other staff and only 1 van that seats 15.
Over the next few months, we will be inviting you to help us with 4 more phases of this gifting:
So I invite you to change the world from the palm of your hand~ Click here to donate.
Join me in giving God room to make much of Himself in the smallness of your gift?
