Day 4 – Holy Land Tour

Today is DAY 4 (May 6).
It is hard to imagine a flash flood in the desert.
I’ve had only a few flash floods (sudden crises) in my life.
But I have had the experience of being stuck in the mud.
Right now it feels as if I am slogging through this virus lockdown.
I can rationalize my way forward, but I am not feeling it.
I am quickly tired, and it is hard to motivate myself to do the next task.
Or even to know what the next task is.
I don’t hear the roar of the flood coming, but I am feeling stuck.
In times like these the Psalms do express well the cry of the heart.
‘Lord, I am stuck, I need help, set me up on a rock!’
The video gave me images to picture when I read psalms like these.
“My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth!” (Psalm 121:2)

  1. I think I will add ‘wadi deluge’ and to ‘stuck-in-the-mud’ to ‘burn-out’ – in terms of ‘crises’ or challenges in my life. Three times I was stuck in bed for over 3 weeks with serious illness – each time I really didn’t hear the ‘roar’ in the distance – but when I look back – the roar was there to warn. Thanks be to God for helping me through and reminding me whose I am. The current ‘life changing’ circumstances remind us of that – occasion for reflection and appreciation – longing for community! God enjoyed walking in the garden with us -so he sent Jesus – and now I may walk with him – now spiritually or with his disciples – someday totally.
