Some things we need to revisit

in order to progress.

One of the things I do when I need encouragement is revisit places, spaces and situations. Sometimes I revisit the places I was standing when God gave me a promise or where I saw him do the unthinkable. By revisiting those places I get renewed since of vision and faith in what could, should and will be. It's easy to stand in the spot that God revealed deep truths. It's comforting to be in a place where you watched healing happen. It's wonderful to be in the pool that God breathed a prodoundity into me that I could have never written on my own. It is incredible to sit in a place and realize you're sitting across from everything you've prayed for. There is no place like being where something ground breaking began.


So today I'm sitting in a place I haven't been to since God did something for me a year ago. I desperately need him to do something today. As a good deal of people know I'm supposed to board a plane and head to Australia in a matter of hours and my whole body is begging me not to get on that plane. It seems as if the universe got the memo too, because I still don't have a visa, so even when I get there I can't start my internship (for pay that is). What am I supposed to do when all of the wisest people I know are encouraging me keep the faith and plunge on inspite of the unfavorable circumstances. Any other day that would be my school of thought, as a matter of fact that was my school of thought up until 2 days ago. Something isn't sitting well with me, and I don't know why.


So I'm sitting in a place that brought clarity to me once. I'm sitting in a place where God answered prayer before hoping to hear what in the world am I supposed to do? I'm supposed to be in a car in 2 hours headed toward Atlanta, and something isn't right. I would so hate to miss God because I'm in the wrong place. But I also don't want to be ungrateful kid who is thrown an opportunity and isn't screaming from the rooftops. So just as Abraham revisited Mt. Moriah to be reminded of what God had done, I'm sitting here hoping I get some clarity quick.


Sometimes we just need to revisit some things because we can perspective. We revisit because we missed something the first time. We revisit to be reminded of what prayer can do. Sometimes we revisit because we don't have a clue what to do. Don't be afraid to revisit some things, because revisiting isn't always bad
