I have one month left in Costa Rica, and as the end of this journey of my life comes to close I have a question for myself. How have I changed? Has this trip to another country changed me in a positive way, have I developed myself to become a better me? Honestly who can answer these questions I don’t even think I can answer these questions about myself. My only hope and prayer is that the lives that I came in contact with here, that they saw the Glory of God through me. Better is the end of a matter than the beginning. So in this last month here in Costa Rica I pray I find peace and solace in the fact that I came, I saw, I conquered. I think to myself sometimes that once this is over its over and theres no getting this time back. I honesty thank God that for four months of my life He gave me the courage to spend it in a different country. Its funny sometimes how one can feel discouraged even when conquering great exploits. I know that during this trip I had moments of sorrow, discouragement, and even doubt. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. One thing I do know about me that has changed since being here is that Im not ashamed of my God and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I remember people told me I shouldn’t proclaim my faith in my blog but at this point in my life if I cant exalt the One who has kept me throughout this journey who am I. So I guess I have grown while here in Costa Rica and I pray I continue to grow even when my plane touches down in the United States on December 20th. Be Blessed and may God’s face shine upon you.
