As this is our last Tuesday in Italy, I thought it fitting for me to say how grateful I am for the opportunity the Lord has given us in being here.
We travelled through Rome today. People were everywhere, from all locations and from all walks of life. My family was together. I thought back to the last 10+ weeks. I really had a lot to thank the Lord for.
What I am most grateful for, is how the Lord is changing me and teaching me. Only HE could do something like that. Little lessons are all around me. He has used the time here to show me some important things about Himself and about myself.
My goal now, is to not go back and waste what I have learned. Routine sets in. Comfort. I hope you'll keep me accountable!
... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
