I'm just catching up on your blog posts. This one, as well as a few others are exactly what I needed to hear. It's been a whirlwind of culture shock, learning to accept differences, and wrestling with the fact that I'm not in control of my life as much as I'd like to think. I've been afraid, felt alone, felt overwhelmed, and a million other things. Hearing my words and the Bible's response to them was exactly what I needed today. Thanks!
