The prayer room was full from afternoon till night with people praying, learning, connecting deeply with God & making some needed paradigm shifts in order to walk more in sync with God. Grabbing hold of intimacy & justice like anchors. Coming one way - leaving another. Today we'll facilitate the U.K. ministry school interns spending time out on the streets serving those in great need. They'll hit the streets as they are - But return different... as we work to help their theology gets its street creed back.
As for me... it is well with my soul watching others come free - but my heart bends low seeking upward to see His face in the contours & crevices of this day. Demons are subject to Jesus' name on my lips - but the seducing whisper of His name in my heart as I work to woo God, And His subsequent response to my longing to see & companion Him this day...this, this fills me more deeply than all else. Perfection pants for me, waits for me, thinks of me in timeless ways. The mere thought of this great God turning to meet my gaze with His... It has the power to make me forget my imperfections & inadequacies. It makes me feel radiant & beautiful.
All this forward motion is our love story with God & His love story through us with the rest of the world. What a great & mysterious calling to know His heart, bear His likeness, & carry His message. What a great & mysterious calling.
