What a ride…

March 31, 2010

I got back from California a week ago tonight.

Talk about a trip.  A trippy trip, at that.

I don’t know if I’ll ever have the energy to recount the whole experience here.  Maybe in time.  Maybe in bits and pieces.  Maybe in Swahili, if I ever learn to speak it, though I currently have no plans to learn it.

But there are some things I learned that are awesome and worth noting:

1. Good intercessors are worth their weight in gold and chocolate.

2. If called upon to speak at a retreat or a conference, I can do it.

3. Redwood trees are very cool.

4. In-N-Out burgers and fries are just as good as ever.

5. I love prophetic prayer sessions.  They’re like spiritual crack to me.

6. It doesn’t matter what you eat in an airport, it will cost at least $10 and it won’t taste very good.

7. God is bigger than any tantruming devil.

8. Don’t even bother trying to fly hub-to-hub on a non-revenue standby ticket during any sort of holiday season, including spring break.

9. No matter how heavy your carry-on bag is, pack a basics kit just in case you get stuck somewhere, say, like Phoenix, for say, two days.

10.  I would actually consider doing this sort of thing again.  Sans the non-revenue standby ticket during a holiday/spring break season, of course.

God is good.  He showed up and did cool stuff for people who needed Him.  He let me be a part of it.  He let me drag some friends along so they could be a part of it too.  I love that!  I love it when He shows up and shows off.  It’s really the coolest thing ever.

Re-entry into my own life has been slow.  By the time I got home I wasn’t feeling so well, so I’ve spent the week resting and trying to get myself back in this time zone.  I’m probably going to have to start trying harder pretty soon, because spring break will be over here and I’ll have to go back to getting out of bed early in the morning to get the youngest Sparkette off to school on time.  But for now, I’m enjoying sleeping in and letting my body heal from a not-so-fun respiratory infection that followed me home.   I usually don’t have the luxury of actually resting.  I’ll gladly receive that as a blessing in the midst of this.

It has definitely been an adventure!

    I sooo knew that God was not only doing more than we (as intercessors) were asking….but more than even what Lisa was capable of asking or thinking. What HE does for ALL (speaker, seakers, receivers, and ‘non committed’… more than we can ask, or think! HE truly knows ALL minds and hearts! HE truly knows the schemes and devices of the best the enemy can offer! Rest comes, when we confess that we really don’t KNOW. YOU are sooooo AWESOME to give EACH what they TRULY need! Be EXALTED to the HIGHEST PLACE. Receive our praise!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lisa, Loved reading this post. I hate it that you got sick and was stuck in airports… but I know that in the midst God did some amazing things! Kellie told me some about the prayer sessions… sounds like it was a powerful time.

    You followed the Wild Goose… there’s no telling what the domino effect of this will be in your life.

    Just signed up to get your posts through email so I can keep up with you!

    Have a blessed day,
    Julie (aka Jewelz/Beauty on RH)
