Unplugged. It seems like such a curse in our society. Our modern technology was the one thing that made leaving home and family palatable. Yet it seems God had plans to stretch me (yet again — doesn’t He know I’m 50). So, I spent my first month here in Roatan unplugged. It seems God wanted me to focus on Him and not on my family and friends in Oklahoma.
My first few days here were hard and lonely. However, now I’m busy and sometimes long for the down time. That seems to be part of my journey — I still haven’t got down the idea of being content in all my circumstances .
One morning I noticed how the sea eagles (At least I think that’s what they are) spend the mornings just letting the currents carry them. That reminded me of a concept I learned while doing the “Experiencing God” Bible study — do what God puts in front of you.
“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
