Well, not much of an update really – there’s nothing really to tell. Work is as work always is.
I’m simply sitting here after a long week at work chilling out, and as I’ve found myself doing quite a bit recently, just praying about nothing in particular. Just being with God really.
With everything that’s been happening, I’m just pondering what’s next for me. I’ve no real clues yet, except that I’m pretty sure a move to England is on the cards, probably late summer at this stage, but God may decide otherwise. I’m just watching and waiting.
Last night at the Prayer Room, we just had an agendaless time with God. As well as the classic words from 2 Chronicles 7:13-14, I looked down to and paraphrased the following words from the same chapter:
2CH 7:19 “But if you turn away and forsake the decrees and commands I have given you and go off to serve other gods and worship them, 20 then I will uproot Israel from my land, which I have given them, and will reject this temple I have consecrated for my Name. I will make it a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples. 21 And though this temple is now so imposing, all who pass by will be appalled and say, `Why has the LORD done such a thing to this land and to this temple?’ 22 People will answer, `Because they have forsaken the LORD, the God of their fathers, who brought them out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshiping and serving them–that is why he brought all this disaster on them.’ ”
My thought of course is that’s exactly what we’ve done – we’ve followed the God of nationality and not being something we’re not, rather than just being and following God. Is the state of this country any wonder?
