It’s 1am, and Ichthus Day 2 just ended. I’m sitting here on the floor of an amazing host home that has let us stay with them, and I’m just blown away by the way God has blessed this tour so far. He’s taking care of our stomachs, our sleep, our finances, and our safety.
The weather here has been very ominous. Earlier today, giant black clouds circled the festival and they made everyone rush to their vehicles to take shelter. Thankfully, no one was hurt or anything. In fact, the storms never even fell…they just passed right over.
This is where it got really interesting. So many people reacted in so many different ways. Some were running scared. Some were crying. Some were laughing and joking. Some were praying and singing. Some were even speaking in tongues and openly shouting at the sky to clear up. As for me, I watched Kung Fu Panda in the van with some friends I’ve made here. (Great movie)
So, who’s right? Who’s wrong? I don’t think there’s really a black and white answer to what method is right or wrong - laughter, panic, calm, fear. I think it has much more to do with who gets the glory. I’ll let my opinion on things stop here for tonight…
If you are giving yourself any credit whatsoever to the storm passing over - you’re wrong. The Lord and the Lord alone kept us safe today, and I’m very thankful!
In other news, we got to talk with more amazing people today. There are far too many to write about here, and I have far too little time. I will say this though… The Lord on high is mighty. We are all very blessed.
