Wrote this while waiting to board my flight at JKIA.

At the airport. Torn between two places. Neither fully here nor fully there. Stuck in no-man’s land. Leaving the familiar, the known and the friendship. Heading towards uncertainty, adventure and the new. Sad to be leaving, excited to be going. A dichotomy of emotions. A tangled mess. My heart saying stay, my spirit yearning for what’s ahead. A ripped page as I divide myself in two.

Knowing my certainty is in Him. Learning that home is in His heart, in His land not here on earth. He is preparing me for a new creation – one where there will be no more goodbyes but the adventures will always continue. He makes me whole. He smooths the uncertainties and he untangles the emotion. He holds my heart together with His very own hands.

Have now arrived safe and well in Juba. All good – it’s good to be here. Lots to tell but not right now. Watch this space.
