Soft breeze, feeling like the breath of God, gently brushing my face, palm trees and tropical plants, birds of paradise, and a clear blue pool entrance my eyes as I sip a special brew. It’s quiet now this early morning. The Saturday night revelers are still in slumberland. The very softness of the air intrigues me. I could be seduced into staying here; well, not really, because after all, there’s a lot of work still to be done.
There are innumerable people in pain and needing Jesus; there are many who will be in hell if they do not get the Word. I’m convinced that each of us have some people who will only 'hear' the truth from us ~ it’s personal. if we do not tell them, it may never pierce their heart. That leaves us with one heck of a responsibility, aye? It isn’t as scary as it may seem, because Holy Spirit will prepare the way, He will open the heart to hear, but we must be willing to speak the Words He will give us. Dear friends, do not tarry overlong. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit nudging you, then take a breath and just speak! He knows the timing!
Today we must depart from this little ‘island’ of joy. It has been a few days chunked full of family and friends all tied together by a mission. We have a precious gift that must be shared. It’s time to move forward on our journey accomplishing the task set before us. . .
Home. [Yawn] More sleep required. So much more to be achieved! At the conference, it was a time of full focus. Home slams my mind with all that needs to be done now! Must make a commitment to get this house back in order! Hmmmm. Yes, this physical house, but even more my spirit 'house', that is my relationship with my Lord must be number one. After that there are phone calls, bills to pay, etc.
Thank You, my Lord, for this respite!
