Elijah called for a halt today. On the face of it, there was no compelling reason due to any overt threats, but we obeyed without question.
Perhaps it was because of our current surroundings. Except for the absence of water, we were in a depression that shielded us from the constant wind, descending from the mountains at our back.
Or maybe Elijah just saw our need. One which was so close under our noses that we were blinded to its impact.
So, it was with gratitude that we each were able to take time to draw apart. To intercede for those behind in the hiding place, and then for those whom we yet seek, the focus for our united mission.
