Whiplash!

While in Ethiopia I found my spirit experiencing whiplash.  One moment I was standing in a hut with a dirt floor.  I spoke with a widow with lots of kids, making 25 cents/day.  Later that day I was checking into my nice hotel on the lake and eating a meal that would take that woman roughly a month to pay for!

Whiplash!  Between poverty and prosperity.

But, in that hut, I met a very poor woman who had very strong faith.  Yet, in my muchness, I struggle to choose faith over fear.

Whiplash!  Between faith and fear.

The hut.

The view of where we stayed after being at the hut. Lake Awassa.

“Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God.” – Jesus in Luke 6:20
