Surely the Lord is in this place.
I am in Abilene, Texas to attend a week of classes for my Masters program at Abilene Christian University. I love this place. I got settled in my room and went for a walk around campus. It was an interesting walk with me pleading with God to straighten out my employment status and lead me to transform my heart status (spiritual, not physical) I also begin to feel His presence. As I approached the statue of Jacob’s Ladder, I felt it even more and I began to pray that one day, sooner or later, that I’ll be a part of this school and campus in some way. I love being around students. I love being around people who are striving to grow. I love being in this place where I feel God’s presence.
I’m not over the struggles I wrote about Saturday. In fact, they are still very real and very painful but I appreciate the time I had today, the time where I asked God to cover me in His presence and He did. I hope I keep on feeling it, all week, every day, every minute. In the meantime, I will keep reminding myself that God is in this place even when I was not aware of Him.
Grace and peace.
