Thoughts

Im changing.

Don’t ask me how, I don’t  know. 

But I am changing .
Im finding.
Im finding new things that I am passionant about. Things that I NEVER in my wildest dreams would have imagined I’d care for.
Like, I LOvE working in the medical field up in the communities where they have nothing. I love holding the hand of a child who is crying in pain because they are having a tooth extracted in our makeshift clinic in a church in the mountains. Because when nobody else is there to comfort them, I can. And I know it is for their good. Or working with the people who are sleeping on the street, or selling themselves to make money for food. I love looking into their eyes. It changes you to look into people’s  eyes. To really look. To care. To see the pain. Weather they are speaking or not, their eyes will pierce your heart. And suddenly the world gets very small, and their problems get very real, and they hit close to home. Close to you. To this person who’s hand is in yours. This person who’s name you now know. This person you care about. This person you love.
I have a passion to know people. To really KNOW them. To sit down and know their name, who they are, where they’ve been, what their struggles are, what their dreams are, what they like, what makes them tick. I love finding similarities in our lives, how our lives meet. And how we can learn from one another. I love just being able to listen, to give them an ear. To encourage. I love to love them.
    I love teaching. I love seeing people’s eyes light up when they finally grasp a concept, when it finally makes sense to them. I LOVE empowering people with new knowledge, with new skills. Especially when I know it can change their life. And all the while, they are changing mine.
  And in reality, none of this is of me. It is all God. He has placed these passions within my heart for 1 purpose: to show people his love. To love people, so they know that there is love. So they know there is God. So they know that he is the Author of all love and all good things. And that He Loves Them. And then, that they in turn, would love Him.

  1. I’m impressed on how all of a sudden you can feel like you are a different person. It’s a good weird feeling! We are changing, and I’m glad we are not alone on this. 🙂
