I am currently sitting in the lobby of my hotel in Jerusalem, thinking of you all. It has been a long day, and while my body longs for sleep, my mind is awake and racing with the adventures and discoveries of the day. It’s hard to process this experience. I imagine when I return home I will be bombarded by questions about my journey and honestly, I am not sure what I will say - words are inadequate for a job this big.
How will I describe how the Word of God came alive to me here?
Like pieces of a puzzle, up until now I’ve only been able to see partial images, but because of this trip I see how the entire puzzle fits together. It’s a breathtakingly beautiful picture and I am not sure there are words to communicate how being here touches deep places in my soul.
Right now, I am focusing on being in the moment with Jesus - receiving what he has for me here in this Holy place. But I also look forward to the day I can find those elusive perfect words to describe my encounters with Him here, in His land.
Until that day, I go to bed both missing my family like crazy and incredibly grateful for this experience.
