The world needs you. It’s crying out for what God has put within you. It’s your time to shine.
As the nights bleed into days…
As time slips through your fingers
As you continue to show unconditional love, even when you’re on your knees
You are stronger than you know, and braver than you think
When all this is over, you will tell your children how brave you have been…
Africa by night can be chillingly haunting. The shriek of a witch doctor performing a curse. The moans of a child hallucinating with malaria. The bloodcurdling screeching and droning chants of cultish groups performing exorcisms.
Reality is, I feel anything but resilient right now. But resilience isn’t really about how you feel, is it? Resilience is about how you respond.
The women I see all around me are all kinds of brave. All kinds of strong. All kinds of courageous.
