This one encounter changed my whole life and started the process of forgiving the people who had hurt me over the years. I reached a point where I believed I had forgiven them and I was free.
I’m back in England now after being away eight months. I decided to spend just over three weeks in South Africa on my way back to England, and this three weeks changed my life. I had a plan in my head to come back to England and study in a Bible college, because I didn’t know what else to do…now its all changed.
God has to wait for us to be quite sometimes.
I’ve learnt so much in this last year about myself and my relationship to God. I have learnt that to be truly on fire for God it takes discipline and surrender.
This is a word that sums me up at the moment. I feel like I don’t quite fit in anywhere that I am between world’s, culture, events and people.
The last month hasn’t been easy. I’ve lost an uncle who funeral it is today and I’m still in Papua, Indonesia. In my heart I’m there with my family as they bury my Uncle. I’ve wept with them as they have dealt with this sudden loss.
It all started when I turned 32. I had a great day with my Indonesian family, I spoke to my family in England and everything was good. Well until doubts started to creep into my mind about being 32 and not having a family of my own, being single and just being alone. I was physically never alone because I was surrounded by my family here in Indonesia, but to see them all with there family wasn’t making these feeling any better, in fact it was making it worse.
