She asked Amy, “What is missionary life like?”
Amy wrote back saying simply,
“ Missionary life is simply a chance to die. ”
i always wanted to be in missions, well the Lord asked me a question.
I can’t answer. I kept quiet.
One night, I couldn’t sleep I found myself reading a book and it was about Christians being martyred.
The next morning in church, P.Thomas was preaching and from no where,
he showed a video of a Christian being martyred to death, the torture the physical wounds and all.
I know the Lord is speaking, but my heart refused to process and reflect about it.
Comes the 3rd day, was sharing some inspiring quotes to a good friend.
And He sent me what Amy Carmichael said, Missionary life is simply a chance to die.
I knew I needed to face it.
I came to a conclusion.
It’s never about I can, but I will.
All it takes it’s the willing heart, just like Jesus did.
He gave his life for all.
What encouraged most from this friend was this
‘ loved deep deep and mak mak mak mak mak ‘
God loves me deep deep and very very very very very much.
what else could i say.
