Trusting The Lord

What a rich message we heard preached today by Josh Harris titled, Trusting The Lord. I highly recommend you to listen to it as soon as possible - he spoke of 3 Exhortations we receive from Proverbs 3:5-6

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths."

We are nearing the end of our journey together. Here is our last assignment for this study on the book of Hebrews:

Read Hebrews 13:18-25
Read Bible Speaks Today - pgs. 267-272

May you have a wonderful week celebrating all the things for which we are thankful!
Happy Thanksgiving!

It's Not Just A Road...


Tom recently discovered a great article that is only two pages long, but full of motivation for why we travel this road year after year.

It is titled: Importance of God's Word To My life

I encourage you to take some time to delve into it - provided by, it is sure to help you if you're struggling with motivation, or if you're needing encouragement in difficulty. God's Word is all we need!

Post Card For You!

Whenever I am away on a trip, and the time is approaching for it to be over; I've found there are two tendencies:

One is to suddenly find your heart ready to go home.

Two is to wish you didn't have to leave.

It is the same with us. As we've traveled through God's Word maybe now you find yourself longing to be with Him in the place we will one day call Home. This is the result of reading and absorbing the Bible. We realize the journey isn't the end, but the destination to which it leads us - Heaven.

However, there have been wonderful trips where I didn't want to come home! This was due in large part because of the ones with whom I was traveling. But it was also because the place I was vacationing was so beautiful.

Both are legitimate responses to a great trip. Maybe you're in the second group and ended up throughout the year being caught up with other aspects of your life in God. You aren't ready to stop because there is still so much you want to see! Or maybe you're about to finish the goal and you're wondering what's next?

The good news is as long as God chooses for us to remain on this earth - we have another year! The road we travel next year will be the same - God's Word...but I guarantee you the scenery will look differently; It always does!

So whether you're finished or not - both are fine. God is faithfully leading us on the ancient road, and He alone will insure we see and enjoy all He has for us!

The End Is Near...

...and we couldn't be more enriched as a result!

Have you felt the nearness of God as we've journeyed these 11 months through the book of Hebrews? I must admit there have been times when my feelings weren't front and center, but God's Word always was! I have learned more this year how to persevere diligently even when my feelings weren't on board, than any other year. It has been a good year.

So as we're nearing the end of this road for this year, it's time to begin planning our end of the year party. Simply comment to this post if you're planning to finish the trip. I can't wait to celebrate with you!
