My husband and I moved to the US four years ago and in February this year I had the opportunity to travel back home to Kenya for the first time since our move.
I expected to dive back to life as I knew it, completely at ease with everything. I had not anticipated the difference 4 years can make.
I began to notice I had changed when one afternoon, as we watched gospel music on TV, I started to critique music, thinking of ways the musician could tweak and “improve” her music – to suit an international audience.
Later in the day, the Holy Spirit began to talk to me about about the critiquing I was doing in my own life. How I was trying to tweak things and expand things because my path felt too narrow and too small.
I see all the green grass on the other side and I want my own acre of green now! But after hitting a big life re-set 4 years ago, on some days I feel like all I am doing is playing catchup-up.
