I am in the lobby of the Adam’s Mark hotel where guest registration is. Noise surrounds me, excited chatter and children in various shades of pink and red clothing run by. But I am finding sacred space.
My mind reflects on a busy, hectic tiring day – starting at 4:00am. My plane was cancelled and they put us on a bus for 2 hours to Chicago to catch another flight. I didn’t know if I would make the plane in Chicago – but I did.
You know what though – God brought a companion traveler with me – another presenter Adrienne Townsend (who I didn’t know would be on the same plane as I) and we traveled on a bus for two hours and then on the plane from Chicago to Dallas. Together we found the super shuttle that would take us to the Adam’s Mark hotel.
Fellow travelers. . . fellow travelers. . . it sure makes the journey easier or more tolerable.
The spiritual journey – sure is easier with fellow travelers.
Allan Martin reminded me today at our first ignition meeting that fellow travelers are important. We were in groups playing games, and then we were praying for each other. Prayer for family members that are struggling spiritually, prayer for “making” it through college, praying for God’s direction in our lives, prayer – sacred space. And the journey became a little more easier.
Ignition is about a dangerous surrender to the invisible God and following after Him with complete abandon. I am glad I have fellow travelers on this journey.
Are you finding sacred space? Do you need a fellow traveler? Please grab one of us on this blog, or go to the prayer room, —we all need fellow travelers.
God – show us your face at Ignition – we desperately need a glimpse of you.
