oN tHiS rOcK...


Yah, my house has been packed :-) but I'm missing it already !!!
I had some wonderful days with some of those who I was with at the Rainbow gathering last year... It was amazing to be together again... we didn't really plan it, but they happen to be here on the same time... It reminded me of how God set it all up last year for the rainbow...
It's so nice when we feel we're in God's hands and He's the one blowing The Wind :-)

I have a word these days in my mind that always comes up again and again...
When Jesus asked Peter who He was, Peter straight away answered Jesus was the Messiah, The Son of God... Jesus was glad coz it was no men who revealed that to Peter, but was God Himself... then Jesus went on saying that on that rock (And I don't see this rock as being Peter, but as the statement he just declared ), HE WOULD BUILD HIS CHURCH... it would not be our human effort... HE builds His church !!!
I totally believe Jesus is building up His church, He's gathering all those who promptly declare He is the Messiah, The Son of God... and nothing evil will overpower us ...
I 've been wondering so much about what church is all about and I'm getting to the simplest conclusion that when two or more gather in Jesus name, He is there, and He is the one who gathers those 2 or 3 who come together declaring He is the Messiah, The Son of God...
It's all about HIM ... We just need to be aware of The Wind... and follow It...

It was so amazing how God showed up this days... prayer and worship would simply flow ... in my flat, in parks,
at the beach,
in the van while we traveled or when we were parked,
in the morning or late in the night, in the middle of the streets of Lisbon,
in the middle of a forest track
, on purpose or by "mistake" ...
We shared dreams together, we prayed for one another, we encouraged one another, we laughed and cried with one another...
And we're simply a group of wanderers and pilgrims...coming from different parts of Germany, from Ireland, from Austria... and here we gather, in the end of Europe... or the beginning, depending on your perspective :-)
wow, I'm really thankful for these days !!! and for this amazing friends !!!
