As I unpack my suitcases and try to adjust to being back home after 10 glorious days in Israel, I am excited to “Spiritually Unpack” my journey further in the coming weeks.
But right now the jet lag has been a little rough. I sense such a peace around me, Even in the midst of spilling literally everything I have touched today and feeling like a sleep deprived new mom with constant morning sickness at the same time. I am thankful to have wonderful kiddos and a husband that are eager to jump in and rescue me. I know this trip has changed me. I know that there are many God Moments to unpack and share.
I know my stomach and head will soon get better and my feet will return to normal size.
So I am not stressing over the fact that our plans to blog about our journey every day were derailed by limited internet, long days, and short nights. I am not stressing that my floors are so dirty you could plant potatoes. I am not stressing that I felt too bad to attend an event that I really wanted to make this morning. I am not stressing that my family wants chili cheese dogs for dinner when I am trying to eat better. I am not going to stress about missing church. Nope, for now I am going to simply Rest!
This verse was stuck in my head today.
Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. ~ Jeremiah 33:3 ESV
So that is exactly what I know God is telling me. He is saying, Beloved, Rest, get your bearings, don’t worry, don’t stress. I will be here when you are ready.
So when my internal clock has adjusted back, when all the things are put back and schedules resume, I know I will call on Him and He will fill me in on all He will have me to Unpack from my journey. I look forward to sharing it all with you soon.
XXOO, Michelle Bollom
