Jesus broke down walls I didn’t realize that I had regarding race and culture. He taught me the ultimate reliance on talking to and listening to the Holy Spirit!
On my first trip to Honduras I learned the importance of being prepared as much as possible – spiritually, logically, plan in place etc – but yielding to His leadership required me to be totally engaged and on board with His leading, and to quiet my own voice. I thought He was leading me to literally take a Honduran child home with me due to her horrible living conditions. It was extremely emotional for me. God was not telling me to do that – He was however leading me to a deeper prayer life to pray not only for that child and her family, but also for the nations.
