Today, when this comes out, I will be in Rome, God willing, with my dear friend, Phyllis Stanley. God has a sense of humor and He also believes in girlfriends and the need to celebrate life together, even in the midst of fires. Sooo, here is the some of the story of my last 24 hours…..
Last night as I was coming back from Joy’s Summit Ministries Graduation, where over 200 kids had celebrated their adventuresome week here in Colorado Springs amidst the fires and evacuating and lectures about faith, I was struck with how amazingly powerful God is every day, all the time, even when we do not know what He is doing because as C. S. Lewis says, “He is not a tame lion.”
(I would not want a God that I could manipulate or control or who was as finite as me. But hearing how excited all of the students were to follow hard after God, to become speakers and leaders and witnesses for His glory, was such an inspiration. To see faith being even more catalyzed because of the send of eternity the fires brought, was such an encouragement.)
98 girls were sleeping on one large conference room at Mountain Springs Church, because they had to evacuate the conference center. (The church provided pillows and sleeping bags and mattresses)
God surprises us by showing up in the most interesting places.
