More about the little moments

I caught a glimpse of Your splendor.
In the corner of my eye.
The most beautiful thing I've ever seen
And it was like a flash of lightning
Reflected off the sky
And I know I'll never be the same
Show me Your glory
Send down Your presence
I want to see Your face
Show me Your glory
Majesty shines about You
I can't go on without You,
LordWhen I climb down the mountain
And get back to my life
I won't settle for ordinary things
I'm gonna follow You forever
And for all of my days
I won't rest 'til I see You again
Show me Your glory
Show me Your glory
I can't live without You

In my earlier post I spoke of my difficulties to share the little moments of this place with those that I love. However, I wasn't able to convey at that time the part of all of this that is the most difficult to portray to people. For me the hardest part to explain is the feeling that comes along with this experience. The protective nature that grips your heart not only for these kids but the people of this country. I seen the way these people live and have seen the way these people hurt. I have seen the way these people love and I have seen the way they worship God. My heart has been affected in ways that could never be put into words. The closest I can come is with the words of the song above. It is a song that I had not heard for awhile but was reminded of a few days ago by someone I had met here. I have caught a glimpse of God here in all His glory and when I come out of these mountains (literally) I will never be the same. I'll never be able to rest while not walking in that glory I have found here. It is hard to come here and not be affected and changed but is harder still to take those changes that have occured in your heart and explain them to those you love. It is easy to see pictures or hear stories or watch a television program on how bad things are for people in other areas but being here is different. Until you have stood in the midst of it you never truly understand or simply....get it. God is doing some big things with my heart and I am loving it. I just wish He would also give me the words to make is so real for everyone else.
