The Desire of Our Heart

"Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:44

In the Johannesburg airport, as we were about to walk down the jetway to get on the plane and head home to the States, we saw this mural. The message caught our attention but also stirred an ache in our hearts. We were faced with the reality of our leaving, and at the same time realized that a piece of our heart was being left behind for good with the people of Swaziland. People we prayed with, cried with, laughed with, played with, planted with, hammered with, painted with, sang with, danced with. People to whom God had knit our hearts together with. People we had come to love dearly. It's been just over a month since we left and my prayer is that God in His grace would one day lead us back again. That God in His grace would one day give us the privilege and opportunity to 'taste Africa' again. That God in His grace would continue the work He has begun, in us and through us, all to His glory. Again God, again!......that's the desire of my heart.
