The Great Adventure
November 2, 2021
12 "Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses."
The words to the song “The Great Adventure” are more than just words that I can find to express what I’m feeling at the moment.
“Started out this morning
In the usual way
Chasing thoughts inside my head
Of all I had to do today
Another time around the circle
Try to make it better than the last
I opened up the Bible and I read about me
Said I'd been a prisoner
And God's grace had set me free
And somewhere between the pages
It hit me like a lightning bolt
I saw a big frontier in front of me
And I heard somebody say, "Let's go!"
"Saddle up your horses!
We've got a trail to blaze
Through the wild blue yonder
of God's amazing grace
Let's follow our leader into the glorious unknown
This is a life like no other
This is the Great Adventure"
My heart is fixed on this next outreach. I’m trying to keep all of my emotions in check but it’s difficult to say the least. We leave at 7:00 am from Tulsa, Oklahoma and arrive in Honduras by 11:30 am, and I’m really pumped.
Hold on to the promise God has made to you. Reach out and receive it with a grateful heart and let God work it through to the end.
Father, thank You for giving us eternal life and the drive to fight. You are the greatest thing that ever happened to us and we praise your Holy name, Amen and amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
