I’ve been pretty tired as a late. When the calendar revealed that we had a holiday this week, I knew what to do. I was in desperate need of unhurried time in God’s presence. God is with me all the time, but I often don’t sense his presence when I’m on the run. I regret that I didn’t devote more of my day off to spending time with God, but the part I spent with him, was pure delight and exactly what I needed.
This week, one of our dear Prayer and Financial Partners was taken from us. Cancer ended her life on earth. I grieve for my loss. I grieve for her family. But I can’t help but think about the pure delight she is experiencing right now – the unhurried, unhindered presence of Jesus. I’m a little jealous.
