The gospels (Luke 5:16 e.g.) record that Jesus frequently drew away from the crowds to “lonely” or “deserted” places to pray. I guess this would qualify. I love this picture – it’s a trail I took in 2011 for the 3rd time that took me to the top of Whitney. Whitney is that big flat-top in the distance. Just look at it! It’s desperate! and it’s dry! In some ways it depicts my path now. I am desperate for a new touch from the Father while thankful for every previous one. Paradoxically I am in a season of deeper growth than I ever thought I would experience while knowing my path to this point is leading me to the precipice of a glorious break-through realization of His presence.
I am so thrilled to have this season at E58 SOM and the possible answers to prayer it presents!
