A Love that can Save the World

“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me – the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24


Growing up, I recognized the injustices of the world and the blessings I received from just being born into a family where I was supported in all of my pursuits. Because I realize how truly lucky I am have to live the life I have, I find no better way to start my journey into the “real world” than by giving back to those who haven’t had such luxuries. I have never woken up in fear of being sold into sex trafficking, nor have I ever reached a point so low in my life that I have lost hope. But that is not the case for everyone. These are the people that have been placed on my heart.
 
So I have a passion to help people but  I am not the adventurous type. I think that if you would have told me even six months ago that I would be traveling to 11 different countries for nearly a year, I would laugh in your face. That was not in my plan AT ALL!  But by witnessing what those in our community are doing all around the world, I began to understand what God’s plan was for me. I need to become the hands and feet of Jesus and bring hope through the love and teachings of Jesus.
 
I decided to apply for the World Race, and was a complete case of nerves! Was this really what God has in store for me? This has nothing to do with my 5 year plan. And by the “Amen” of my phone interview’s opening prayer, I received confirmation that that is what God placed on my heart. And now, I am diving head first into bringing love to the every corner of the world.

Because His love is the only love that can truly save the world.
