Even if something happened and I was not able to go on this trip to India...the preparation for the trip has already changed me. Here's how:
I care about something I didn't care about before: I have prayed for the woman of India, women I do not know. Suddenly I care about their lives, who they are, their struggles and their joys.
I let go of the idea that I am in control: I have realized that any idea I have that I am in any way in control of my life, is just a grand illusion. I am not in control. Whether I cross the street, or cross the world, God is in control.
I have a fresh eternal perspective: Any thing I choose to do has significance IF what I am doing has the possibility to influence eternity. And eternal things are worth the risk.
I Love God even more: To think that He had such a cool idea in mind for me, to think that He loves people so much more then I can, to think He loves my children so much more then me. I love God for that.
I have a new urgency to pray: Stepping outside of my comfort zone just makes me want to pray... a lot. Ya know?
