What’s Your Africa?

Did you know I lived in Africa for three years? Lately, I’ve been longing for a huge adventure like that. The thrill of finding a job overseas, getting rid of all the junk I wouldn’t need there (and didn’t need here), packing, getting on a plane for the first leg of a 24 hour journey, and starting a fresh life in a new, exotic culture.

Me in Nairobi, Kenya

I’d love to move overseas again! It’s a huge leap of faith that required me to trust and lean on (cling to) God in a whole new way. But right now Africa isn’t on my horizon.

Recently, it occurred to me that this newsletter is my Africa. It’s a new frontier. It’s making me lean on God and have faith. It’s a test of my courage, strength, and discipline.

What’s your Africa?

What do you wish you had the courage to do? Maybe your Africa is literally looking for a job overseas or maybe it’s learning how to become a freelance writer here at home. Maybe you need to deal with a health issue, a troublesome family member, or a work situation that’s been driving you bonkers for too long. Maybe you need to find the courage to break up with someone you love because the relationship isn’t good for you.

Whatever your Africa is, may you find courage, strength, and freedom to go forth! May you take time to see yourself as God sees you, and may you follow His guidance in your life.
