13 Days Til Africa

Ripe1

 

The best way I know how to describe me going to Kenya is just that I am “ripe” for this experience. I could go into detail about the changes that took place in me in Canada, and the revelations I grew into culturally and spiritually (losing my religion), but I believe John 15 sums up many of my sentiments and locates where I am now. In John 15 Jesus shares, “abide in me and I in you as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine. So abide in me, and let my words abide in you and you shall bear forth much fruit” I’ve grown deeper in experience of abiding in the Son, where roots grow so deep fruit is inevitable. My spiritual process has become very organic. Faith, hope, and love are first nature.

However, it took me growing out of being an appendage to a system that was sucking life out of me rather than giving me life. The intention I desired to live in is no longer hindered by protocol. I’ve can truly practice living intentionally free, to naturally produce in season, knowing He makes all thing beautiful in its time. I’ve grown content with His timing. I’ve also grown aware of his concern with not only the roots of who I am but the extension of the branches. Just as He commands me to love Him with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. He desires to minister to every part of me with the same intention and potency. Kenya will be instrumental in not only the expression of me producing fruit for God’s kingdom, but be a new light that shines into unreached depths of my soul I have yet to discover. I’m ripe.
