I took Elijah’s words to heart and pondered them during my quiet times. It required chasing away the images of our friends in dire straits. Something not easy to do, for I did not want to miss any opportunity to intercede for them in what I was sure was their current peril.
Elijah kept us on the move. Forward. For the only other way would be back to the scene of the attack upon us.
I took comfort from the fact that these rock formations hem us in on each side.
It was then that I realized that the Spirit had used the attack to channel us forward. In a way l feel it has helped to confirm our destination.
