As I continue to get messages and replies, I have been released from On High to share my sentiments on Israel, Palestine and beyond.
An open letter to those who say,
“NO! DON’T GO THERE!”
Thank you so much for your comment. I am incredibly pleased to hear from you. The gift of this educational tour is to see the conglomeration of the bitter and beautiful. The goal of Passages Israel and COGIC World Missions is to provide an authentic experience of Israel.
Although much that I’ve experienced has been magnificently overwhelming because of the Biblical historical context while visiting, I’ve also witnessed heart wrenching facts right before my eyes and observed the misery that many endure. I’ve touched these people and walked on their grounds in their community.
This is certainly a place to tour.
I wondered why I was drawn to Colorado this week with Cousin Samuel.
Higher elevation appears critical for me to rise to a place of action–to have the difficult conversations with myself.
Now, I pause to glance back at my hearty writing session from only an hour or so ago.
I am allowing you in on this fiercely floral conversation.
Tickled by my tone, cadence, and posture, I now grow even more thankful for my growth.
DISCLAIMER: Don’t be alarmed; I’m not always this cold, blunt, or rigid. But some days require it.
💐It begins here:
I dug, trespassingly into my comfort zone and •went• there. Asking rhetorical questions, I ripped at my own ego.
Since I’ve returned to the States, it’s been an honor to speak to various groups of people back in my home country. Today, I was gifted with the opportunity to speak to “God’s Covenant Prayer Partners” and share my testimony right here in “The Heartland.” During my presentation today, I mentioned that I write for Gospel Today Magazine. I’ve been writing for Gospel Today Magazine for about a year now and it’s been such an honor and joy. I’m excited to share my newest article with my Seven by 30 subscribers and readers. Please let me know your thoughts on this and share the wealth.
Sometimes I pray silly prayers. I mean really silly ones. Prayers like, “God, please let there be at least one Black person on my cruise in Antarctica.” Prayers like, “Lord, I don’t want to have to buy sunglasses for my expedition. Can someone on the ship have a spare? I want to save my coins.”
