As a missionary, I have had countless people ask what it was like to have plumbing with water that ran out; to have electricity that wasn’t reliable; to have friends that were an ocean away.
I was asked often how Lloyd and I started in Ghana with no team, no one to talk us through, no language, no understanding of culture.
The answer – Jesus!
It may sound simple – trivial – even ridiculous; but I can say a full truth – the situations that we had to endure, taught us to be completely satisfied and even desirous of Jesus because we knew that He Was Right There!! We knew that He was willing to give us more and more and more of Him!
When Jesus tells us that the water will not run dry, it is an amazing truth! When he placed us in a village with no community that we knew already, we found deep love. When he placed us in a situation with no one to guide us, we felt a road of clear guidance. When he placed us where we didn’t know how to get around, we felt provided for.
He is more than enough – ALWAYS!
