So we were at this place called Value Village yesterday on our off-day (a place that sells second hand items ranging from clothes and books, to board games and household items), and I was in the books section searching for interesting titles that I could buy back home.
I noticed there were many books of Justin Bieber up for sale… No points given to figure out why.
Let me be that gust of wind…
That changes the direction of the falling leaves
That moves waters to foreign lands
That persuades fallen flowers to take flight
Let me be that plow in the soil…
That turns aside the harden ground
That prepares them roots to grow deep within
That with every prayer hearts will change
I like what I see and feel here in canada. While driving on the road you can see wide open spaces, and when you look from left to right you can see the curvature of the earth. Cause there’s nothing in the distant that’s blocking your sight.
I can see the greatness of God here being manifested in nature and I see His magnificence in the vastness of the sky and land, in the forests and the rivers. In the snow, in the dried and withered grass, in the bare branches of the many spruce and birch trees. I see Him in the contours of the hills and slopes. In the distant farms with horses and cows grazing the fields. I see most of these from the car that I travel in, and although I’m no where close to touching these landscapes, I’m already so overwhelmed. Everything is so beautiful, even from a distance. I see God when the wind catches the snowflakes and cause them to dance around the houses, falling on my hair and nose and eyelashes. Then in that moment, I feel so close with my creator. It’s as if I touched the face of God. And in all this I’m humbled once again, that He would call me His child and friend.
I feel so thankful to be here. There’s an increase in emotion and sensitivity. Not in a bad way y’know; like I cry every other day and stuff, but in a way that I can sense God everywhere here and hear Him.
When I’m doing evangelism in quiet neighbourhoods I also see Him in the empty streets, and I find Him in the silence. I have seen His beauty, but not in it’s fullness just yet.. I think He is just revealing this part of Himself to me.
The most exciting part is I’ve only been here for just about a month. And there are two more months to go! I wonder how much more I’ll discover and learn here.
I’m waiting for my last batch of laundry to be done so I can hang them up. Surprisingly, I feel sleepy. I thought I would be all jumpy and excited and awake the entire night but it looks like I would be able to sleep quite well. Yay haha. Looking forward to a good nights rest.
