I pleaded …
“Don’t take her Lord, we need her. Without her who will teach us about you?”
“You will, and you will teach others too.”
And so – I was commissioned to a ministry borne out of my sadness.
Called while alone and broken.
Not as one would assume … after healing and training.
Sent into a mission field I was already standing in.
No new language to learn, nor a foreign culture to understand.
Simply to “Put on Christ” and abandon myself to a new direction.
Eyes would turn to me now, a simple brown-eyed girl, an obedient child.
A ministry of words, ideas and nuances could be crafted.
A life lived with little meaning was now endowed with eternal meaning.
Reluctant and untrained I accepted the call.
Thus began the retelling of “His Story” through my story.
