“The line between faith and insanity is thin.” Faith – the most basic element of our entire belief system. We are asked to believe in something (someone, really) greater than ourselves. And if you really think about it, it IS borderline insanity.
Today we traveled out of Swaziland, back into South Africa to Kruger National Park, the largest game reserve in the world. We beheld AMAZING creatures of God’s glory, including impala, kudu, zebras, elephants, lions, and yes, giraffes!
In the midst of this viewing, the team spent personal time reflecting, praying, feasting on all of God’s goodness over the last two weeks. We’ve reflected both individually and collectively on the lessons we’ll be bringing home. The resounding cry: boldness. faith. trust.
The belief in things unseen, faith is the actionable step to belief. We have witnessed many come to faith in our time in Africa, but in doing so we have also strengthened our own faith. We have walked the line of faith and insanity. We have felt on the fringes, pushing the limits of our faith and seeing God expand that faith.
We expect God to continue to move that faith. To give us the kind of faith that moves mountains. As we continue to meditate on all we’ve seen and heard, we’re begging God to continue to strengthen use in that faith, and to help us bring it home.
Join with us in that prayer.
With Faith in Things Unseen,
The Swaziland Partnership
