I spent the first half of today taking a hike with Jesus @ Weldon Springs. I asked Him to lead me and clarify the messages I would be giving to Junior High Camp this summer. He was definitely faithful in those. But here is why I love taking walks with Jesus…
He gives so much more than we ask. I saw bull frogs larger than my fist here. Brought back great memories of catching frogs at Columbia Creek Park, in Michigan…while mom got the strawberry shortcake ready. 🙂
A neat moment where I saw the barren terrain (think “beginning of Lion King”), and it was as if this was that same scene after God’s return/making new.
I took a moment here to acknowledge the possibility that God was using the dew all over my feet, and symbolically “washing them”…another reason to always wear flip flops. 🙂
When you bring a pole, you worry about catching one, but when you use your eyes – every fish is yours. 🙂
I thought about the effort it took to carry these few stone circles into the middle of a path in the woods. I hope that person knows how beautifully they’ve worked with what God has made here. 🙂 Perhaps we are laying such stones in our own lives…may we be encouraged to know what can become when we work with God…
A great morning, got a jump start on a transformational week this summer, and burned a few calories. Thanks God. 🙂
