I’m currently taking a break from planning my bible study for tomorrow in order to rest my poor fried brain. If I can be perfectly honest with y’all, I’m completely exhausted in almost every way. Satan is taking the opportunity to attack at full blast and I simply don’t have the energy to deal with it. As I’m feeling inadequate and undeserving of all the information I’m getting and feeling like it’s a good thing the project is almost over because these people are going to decide they really don’t like having me around(lies from Satan all) all I want to do is sleep for the next twenty hours. Not because I’ve been sleep deprived, but because my soul is in desperate need of rejuvenation. As I take a step back from the crazy preparations to go home on Thursday I am struck by how desperately I need Jesus.
I don’t need 20 hours of sleep, I need 20 hours in the word. I need a pot of coffee, a piece of VI pie, and my thumbed up Bible. I need 20 hours where I have nowhere to be except in the presence of my savior, redeemer, and best friend.
So am I ready to leave Pasadena? I don’t know. Am I ready to see my friends and family? Probably. Am I ready to have free time in the presence of God? Yeah. Absolutely.
