So a while back I downloaded a bunch of music and some of it ended up being some memories.
As I was working today, the song History Marker came through the shuffle.
I got thinking about my life here in Rwanda ...
I'm gonna be a history maker in this land
I'm gonna be a speaker of truth to all mankind
Well I don't know if I will be a history maker in Rwanda.. but somehow I sure hope so.
I thought back over all the people who I have spent time with here - refugees, women, orphans... the most vulnerable. I pray that my time with them, in whatever capacity has encouraged them to move forward in their lives spiritually, socially and economically.
I do know that I will speak truth to all - no matter what comes.
Well it's true today that when people stand
With the fire of God, and the truth in hand
We'll see miracles, we'll see angels sing
We'll see broken hearts making history
Yes it's true and I believe it
Yes I do believe it.
Sometimes people DO need someone to stand for them and with them.
To encourage them to take a step forward in the right direction.
And as we pray... the unbelievable can happen in peoples lives.
We have seen and will continue to see people - orphans, widows. refugees - go beyond anything that people thought they would - until someone would stand for/with them believing in the power of God to transform a life.
I guess I am part of making history as a line of people runs through my head...
