Introduction I am simply a girl who desires nothing more than to sit at His feet and to be rid of my selfishness. I long for His passions to become mine. My heart aches for His kingdom and the beautiful children of the world. I yearn to be broken for His glory. I hope to be wasted for His name. Ruin me for You, oh Lord. "I straddle two worlds. One foot in America. One foot in Africa. My heart is split. It's an awkward place to be, as it stretches the legs upon which I stand. I would prefer to be in one place instead of straddled awkwardly across an ocean. Contrary to American doctrine, however, i think we are supposed to be a little bit uncomfortable as we live within the tensions of this complicated world." -Jena Lee, from Hope in the Dark
Interests Changing the World: "The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world... are the ones who do." Bringing His glory to the nations: "How then can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written 'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!'" --Romans 10:14-15
