Sunset daydreams

Matthew 20:26-28"Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your skate- just as the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."Being a missionary, this bible verse really touched my heart. I heard this verse during a camping trip I took with a program "Niko" (the photo above is from the campsite). I meditated on the verse for awhile and it humbled me. As a missionary one of my focuses is to be the hands and feet of god and to serve others. My main priority is to serve god and through that he knows my heart for loving others, that return helps me serve others. Growing up I've always dreamed of "changing the world". Such a big and vague term that is. I don't think I even ever fully understood what that meant. But now as I'm older and in this season of my life I've come to realize that god is helping me accomplish that dream by being a missionary. If I want to change the world then all I have to do is love god and he will take me to places I could never imagine. For example, I'm leaving for Brazil soon for an outreach mission trip for 2 months. If you told me a year ago that that would be my life, I would of laughed. This verse really humbles me and I love the concept of servanthood. Just wanted to share that lil thing with you all and let you all know that I had an awesome camping trip & im feeling a lot better from being sick. :)
