Recent Road Trips & Jesus Sitings

It’s amazing to me that I try to put God in a box, that I still think I can imagine how He will bring about His purposes. And yet He says, “My ways are not your ways, neither are my thoughts your thoughts. In fact I will do immeasurably more than you could ask or imagine.”

None of us quite knew what our time in Indianapolis was going to look like, we just knew it was important that we go. So two Memphis girls and our friend from New York set off for an adventure. The event was surrounding 32 hours of continual prayer led by the National Day of Prayer, and a program unveiling a documentary on the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, on his birthday.

This weekend was to be for a purpose bigger than all of us, but we were about to see God “WOW” us all. Throughout the weekend we would watch as He would pull the pieces of the program together, knit our rag tag group together like a family, and through it all speak to each of us individually about how dear we are to His heart.

Our group was about as different and diverse as it gets. We were different ages, different races, different genders, but we all shared a common theme. We all follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and we all have deep inner groanings, deep longings to see healing, reconciliation, and unity. We feel that the love of Jesus is our only hope for these things.

One thing is certain, in these times as God is moving throughout our nation and the world, our prayers avail much. So we partnered with a church in Indianapolis, and went to pray. And pray we did! They had our team up front leading over a microphone, but you could hardly hear the person speaking because people were literally crying out to God. We prayed for our nation, for our leaders, for our families, for our children. The cry that went up echoed in Heaven’s throne room as we cried out to the living God to heal our land.

On the holiday honoring MLK, the Madame CJ Walker Theater was filled to the brim. The documentary was shown, local talent entertained, the mayor and others spoke, and all was for the glory of God.

As the three of us drove home, exhausted and yet bursting at the seams with overflowing cups of joy, we lamented having to leave our little family that had bonded so tightly in our short time together. And that is what we As followers of Christ we are brothers and sisters. And for eternity we will join together with every tribe and every nation in praising our God saying, “Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God almighty, who was and is and is to come.” Amen
