God just listened, and waited. “Therefore YHWH will wait, that He may be gracious to you” (Isaiah 30:18a).
“I can’t do this. I don’t know how that feels. I can repeat what the interpreter says but I can never do this myself--training or no training. I don’t have the words to say, not for that. If I do business as mission, I can teach the business. Someone else can sort through all the heartache--someone with a counseling degree."
Tears gathered beneath my closed lids.
