Today we leave Eyjólfsstaðir Guesthouse. The conference came to a close on Tuesday evening and we were able to rest and fit in some more sightseeing before we fly back to Reykjavik this afternoon. I know I can speak for the entire team and say that we were all tremendously blessed during our time here. Beautiful people, beautiful scenery, beautiful testimonies and a beautiful God. Our next few days will be spent with some of our new friends that we had the privilege of ministering to last week . We will be sharing meals, as well as visiting their church on Sunday.
The conference was full of surprises. We witnessed people who were so touched by God that every ailment that they had in their body was healed. There were times when we were just sitting back and watching God move. It was nothing that we were capable of doing. It was all Him. The King of kings. The Lord of lords.
I still have to go through my notes that I jotted down, after getting terribly behind in my journaling. Things began to happen so quickly that I could hardly keep up. I will be using the rest of our stay at the apartment in Reykjavik (that does not have wifi) to sort through the revelations and gems that I received from the Lord.
Forcing my mind to relax and not to run too far ahead has been a little bit of a struggle this week. The last thing I want to do is to try to get ahead of God. Presently I do not know what I am doing. Presently I do not know anything beyond Iceland. Presently I do not know where I am going to live when I get back to the United States. Presently I do not know anything, but thankfully God does. He knows everything concerning my past, present and future. I trust that He will show me which steps to take next . . . this is one thing that I do know!
So, whether I live in a house, or an apartment, or up in a tree, I am up for the adventure of living. I decided this last night, as I was washing my socks and underwear in a tiny sink in Iceland.
If the opportunity arose, I’d gladly stay here longer. In fact, I would quickly say yes to living here for awhile. I feel very at home in this country. There will definitely be more visits here in the future, and I get the feeling it will be sooner than later.
So, today I am choosing to stay in the present. I am choosing to focus on what is happening right now, right here. A lot can happen in a few days, and I don’t want to miss out on anything else that God has planned.
Today is the day that the Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it! Whether I am moving back to Oregon, or staying in California, or staying in Iceland, or . . . you get the idea.
