Because of the voice of the enemy,
Because of the pressure of the wicked;
For they bring down trouble upon me
And in anger they bear a grudge against me.
My heart is in anguish within me,
Fear and trembling come upon me,
And horror has overwhelmed me.
I said, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest.
“Behold, I would wander far away,
I would lodge in the wilderness.
Sometimes the desire to go to some secluded cabin in the woods where there is no cell coverage, take enough food for a month and just stay there is so strong. I know of several places that I could use for free. I would take Patty with me of course, and we would have a very nice time. I am sure it would be incredibly refreshing.
But for the last several days I have been experiencing even better than that. We are in the middle of our 5 days of prayer, we pray for 10 hours each day, and I have been in the prayer room most of the time. It so totally consumes my thinking that I truly don’t have a single thought about covid, impeachments, masks, or taxes.
Sitting in God’s manifest presence with others who are believing in God’s love and presence as much as I am is incredibly exhilarating, relaxing, and renewing.
