did your summer fly by at the speed of warm, and maybe even scorching sunlight? It all went way too fast for me, including my time in Spiritual Renewal. What a gift it was to spend time with family and friends, but most importantly have dedicated, uninterrupted time with God. Before I left I told you I'd give you a synopsis of my experience, so here is just a little sampling of an enormous amount of reflections. It is not complete by any stretch of the imagination, but I will hit just a highlight or two.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from far away.
You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways." Psalm 139:1-3
Or where can I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there,
if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there.
If I take the wings of the morning
and settle at the farthest limits of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me fast." Psalm 139:7-10
I hope you'll be with me on this awkward journey through really letting go, and letting God fill our days to the extent that we forget to count the minutes with God, and instead focus on the minutes until we can sit with God again.
