I woke up this morning feeling a little weird. How come I’m still in bed. I looked at my clock and it says ‘7:30am’. Usually by that time I’m already up and getting ready for breakfast and for my day. But then it hit me, I’m not there anymore, I’m already here.. back home.
It’s been almost 10 hours ever since I landed here in California coming home from my missions trip in Cuba. I can’t believe it’s already over. Time went by so fast. The events and memories that took place for the past 7 days are still vividly fresh in my head and in my heart. Gosh how I loved those people in Cuba. How I admire their heart and hunger for God.
God completely rocked my world when I was there. The way how I would look at worship, devotion, prayer, surrender, hunger, desperation, joy, celebration will never be the same again. Heck my christian walk will never be the same ever again. I wish I can tell you all the details as to how my trip went, but I’m gonna have to be selfish this time, at least for now. Allow me to just soak and ponder in everything that just happened. But for now, this post shall do.
To close this post I wanna share a short convo I had with a girl who was the same age as me, who was also an upcoming worship leader and passionate about evangelism. Here’s how it went:
Mark: So why pursue God and give your life to Him instead of pursuing the things of this world?
Migdalia: He is better than anything in this world. He is all I’ve got. He is my everything. I wouldn’t trade Him for anything else. He is so good and He makes me happy.
Everytime I remember her response, I wanna cry. It was convicting and challenging at the same time. And I said to myself, ‘Man, I want that. I want that kind of hunger and contentment. I want to be able to confidently say God is all I want and is all I will ever need in this world.’
This is just one, I have tons of these moments when I was there. And I can’t wait to share it with you all. Have a blessed week folks.
