I’ve been traveling…nothing new there, but this time I came home with a sore throat and pain in my ears. I waited a few days and then went to my doctor who prescribed amoxicillin, and here I am at 3:42am, not feeling much better than I was three days ago.
I’m supposed to leave on Tuesday morning for Israel and I’m concerned that I might not be a able to. I so want to go to Israel. I want to walk where Jesus walked, perhaps even touch a stone or tree trunk or lean against a wall where He was. I want to return to America healed of all of my infirmities. How many people go to Jerusalem for such a desire? I know that Jesus is everywhere, and yet I still seek him. I want an encounter. I want more of Him. I never thought about Jesus that way when I was younger…perhaps it is this darkening world that makes me yearn for more light. I want to glow with love from Jesus. To be kinder, more loving, more attentive, more like Jesus.
So if by chance you are also awake at 3:50 in the morning and see a light on in someone’s home, maybe I’m that neighbor and that’s what I’m thinking about. May the Lord bless your days.
