We Are Carriers of His Love

Chinese-temple-webIt was just a little over four weeks ago that Tony and I departed from Seattle for a month of travel that took us from Europe, to Israel and China. 


We first arrived in Lisbon Portugal.  This beautiful nation borders Spain, and is located on the South Western part of Europe on the Iberian Peninsula.  There is an ambience of friendly ease to this place and a love welled up in my heart for this coastal city that was so filled with refreshment for my soul. Even in the midst of Portugal’s economic difficulties, I sensed a hunger for God.  Sara Catarino, Aglow’s National President in Portugal, has done a wonderful job of keeping Aglow focused in faith as she continually presents opportunities for strategic prayer at significant sites so God can turn the nation in a new direction.  Watch for it!

This time of year can make difficult things seem particularly heightened. Tender places in our hearts seem even more tender. Places where we have pressed into God and waited long for answers, yet the expected breakthrough seems out of reach. Even though we are learning to abide in His Presence, times of sadness can sweep over us in the midst of challenging circumstances. We are real people, who face real life issues that are not always easy. It isn’t that we lack faith; rather, it is the length of the journey while waiting expectantly for the response of heaven.

Last night, as I listened to the Sounds of Christmas sung by a great choir, the strains of a familiar carol touched my heart. Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Glory to the newborn King! This great anthem of praise resounds with the triumph of the skies.
