Some true things

for me to remember

when living here feels hard.

I’ve moved 3894 miles away from home to a country I’ve never even visited before.
“Do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” – Joshua 1:9

I can’t sleep at night or stay awake during the day, I can’t work out the tax on anything I buy, I struggle to remember that named streets go north/south and numbered go east/west.
“What is impossible with man is possible with God” – Luke 18:27

I can’t have a social security number unless I have a job, and it’ll costs a lot to apply for working status (which I may not get).
My identity doesn’t come from this world instead “our citizenship is in heaven” – Philippians 3:20

Everything I own is in this one room; I do not own most of the things in this room.
I have the “incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” – Ephesians 2:7

  1. Hi Hannah
    You’ve done well to write a blog so soon!
    I hope you soon get the hang of your new location, and that you can see the sea soon.
    We’ve been leaf printing this morning, followed by shared lunch. Just catching up now.

    God bless you. Joy 🙂
