Luke 24:13-32
This is Jesus heartburn(I have to credit Dallas Willard for this term!)...31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. 32 They asked each other, "Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?"

The last few weeks in Sierra Leone have been difficult  for me for many reasons and I am so grateful today for a God who gently leads and guides me. We are made for relationship. To know and be love and be loved and for any of you who have ever packed up your life and moved far away you know that feeling of having your heart in 2 places, or more!

I think I fell in love with Charlie Hall the first time I heard him sing; the words to his songs grab my heart and attention so often. This week it's been a song called "I will overcome" and I want to share it with you, (you can find the song on youtube if you want to hear it). And say thank you for the sweet words of encouragement and prayers that you have given me recently. Thanks!

And I can see that my hands are trembling, I can see that my legs are weak

I can see that my head is spinning, but I will overcome
And I know that my heart is hurting, And I know that my soul it aches
And I know that it seems I'm failing, but I will overcome, yeah

O Lord I'm strong in You, O Lord I am wise in You
O Lord I can see in You, so I will overcome
O Lord I'm loved by You, O Lord I am free in you
O Lord I'm complete in You
So I will overcome, I will overcome, I will overcome

God listen to me shout, I'm so far from anywhere and I'm calling out
Lead me, lead me to the rock that is higher than I
You're my breath, You're my breath, You're my very life
Infinite, Holy King meets weak and frail Christ in me
And I will overcome not by my strength but by Your grace and love
