Hi, here is just a quick update, letting you know what’s been happening since my Oregon post. We did go to Jesus Pursuit church, which was great! Later, after crossing the state line into California, we were fortunate to catch the 2nd half of Bethel Church‘s Sunday night service in Redding. It was my first time at this world-famous church, and God did not disappoint!
After the 4 days, Beau and I arrived in LA at my parents’ place. I took him around LA a bit, showed him some cool places, such as the Getty Center, before he flew back up to Seattle.
I have been down here in LA for about 1 month now, hanging out with my family, visiting various ministries, and hosting another friend (Ola from Iceland) for 5 days. Every week down here has been pretty eventful, including lots of rain! (I had lived in Southern California for 15+ years before, and I don’t remember it ever being so rainy in one month)
Next Tuesday I will be flying out to China for 1 month. To learn more about my upcoming trip, click here. You can keep me in your prayers, as I embark on this journey to the other side of the Pacific, following the Lord’s leading in 2011.
Living from rest. Receiving His best.
As I watch the hail fall outside our storefront window,
My mind is somewhere outside in the distance somehow.
O the places I would go,
And the cool things I would do!
Some dreams birth and burst and linger,
Others plague the heart forever.
(And I pray that a few would fit inside your master plan,
As I know all things You uphold in the palm of your hand)
As I watch the rain fall outside our storefront window,
Your mind is focused on me on the wet earth below.
Time flies so quickly by,
Frantic people at twice the speed,
Passing ahead to future lies.
I sweep the dust they left behind.
Wave goodbye, wave Godspeed,
Follow your fortune cookie dreams.
What lies ahead they cannot see,
Around the corner to destiny.
At the bus stop in the rain,
Drenched and lonely beneath the clock.
Yet somehow I wait content,
Knowing the way it’s going to end.
Wave again to passer-by’s,
Bid farewell and watch them leave.
Soon enough they’re out of sight,
Thinking of you I close my eyes.
Don’t know when you’re going to come,
I will stand here, tall and true.
When I see you, I’ll leap and run
Into your love, into your arms.
Love appears after the rain
But love has always been there
Love arrives after the pain
But love has always been here
Love is the train that knows no end
Its tracks are ever constructing
When you reach the end of your friends
Love is coming, love is reaching
Love is never late
Love just takes time
Love is never afraid
To climb, to climb
