The problem with adventures is that when they are over, pieces of your heart are left behind. I left a piece of my heart with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. I left a piece of my heart with the Billy Graham Library. I left a piece of my heart with each person God brought into my life.
One thing from this summer that I know will never pass away is the relationships God orchestrated. I am in awe of the incredible gifts God has given me in relationships with interns, car moms, host families, leadership and mentors. I can’t wait until God brings us back together, wherever that might be.
All I have is wonder. Wonder that the summer is almost over, wonder that I had to say goodbye, wonder at the sufficiency of God, wonder that God would give me the privilege of being a part of His work and wonder that I get to continue to be a part, even as I come home.
“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of His glory He may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:14-21
