Sometimes...

Christian Teens standing for JesusSometimes, something looks really great on the outside, but the toil and turmoil twists and turns and the something on the outside doesn't match what you are feeling on the inside. 

The meadows are greener or so it seems, the sounds from others seem to bear little fruit and sometimes it doesn't bear well with your soul. 

Our temptations can look really great on the outside, but when your spirit bears witness to what your feeling and how you have prayed but it doesn't seem to line up, know that the Lord will not allow you to fail on your own.  He will guide you and show you, but you have GOT to be in tune with HIM or you won't be able to hear HIM over the noise of the confusion. 

You may well believe that what you have been hearing from others is good and right, but the Lord will bear witness to your soul.

Question: "How can I turn all my worries and problems over to God?" “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall” (Psalm 55:22), and “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7),(1 Corinthians 10:13),Psalm 55:22,(Matthew 7:11), (Romans 5:3-4);Ephesians 4:32, 1 John 1:9, (see Psalm 103:11-12),(John 3:16), Philippians 4:8:

We were so worried about the winter.  We have not been in the winter snow for about 5 years.  We do not like the snow, we don't mind a bit of cold but after heading to Nebraska last winter for a surgery and visit, we froze!  We got stuck in the 8" of snow and below zero.  Too blasted cold!

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ― Lewis Carroll

So we trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight. 

Trusting in the Lord is learning to live life from the inside out not from outside in....All these verses remind me that I am Not Alone and that I Have an eternal place in Heaven!! ;-):


So, we stand, therefore stand on the Word of God and HIS voice and stand on HIS promises.

Some of you will be a chapter in our life story, some will be a few sentences, some will continue to be throughout our life story, it all depends on you.  But our life story is deep and wide.  It's about love and loss, it's about life and real things that have formed us. It's about what God has done in us when We met him.  He changed our life!  We have been in great teaching churches, not churches that spoke over us, but taught us to HEAR HIM and to count on HIM.  Those churches taught us reliance on HIM and not them.  Our life story is intense and sometimes too much for some.  Love this saying by TobyMac.  It really spoke to us. 



We also have attended Perry Stone's Pastor's conference and learned a great deal more.  We have right standing with God.  And we know that the blessings, the spiritual and life blessings will be great. 



When we sold our house, it was to go on the road again.  To pick up C.A.M.P. Saints/No Walls Ministry again and see HIM work in the campgrounds.  He did not call us yet to be a Bible Study, although our hope is one day that will happen along with a fellowship time and worship time,  But that time is not yet. We have walked before God and it never works out.

Our belief that God is in this journey with us or we should say, we are in this journey with HIM.  He that is in us is greater than he that is in the world. 





So, we go into ALL THE WORLD to spread the Gospel of Jesus the Christ.  Into all the world, at least our campground world, to be Jesus in deed and word.
