I never wanted to go to Israel, I was going to Scotland, and that would have been the wrong choice. When asked why I did go, I answered something like this: "I want to go because I think I settle instead of expect God to show up. I think I am willing to take the leftovers instead of thinking God will show up extravagantly. I want to know the God of the extravagant and I know He wants to show me that is who He is. I want to break off my thinking that I am only worth settling for, I want the dump truck not the little pieces. I want to know the God of the extravagant." He showed up!
