Well, here I am, back from a brief vacation. God looked over me while I travelled and was away from home. I had a good time, saw some friends, made new friends, managed to find some gold and catch some salmon. More importantly, I talked to God, He protected me and helped me as I pondered on a very important decision. God is so GOOD! He blesses me, protects me, loves me, forgives me, shows me mercy and grace. None of which I deserve.
I took a week off from reality and went to do some prospecting and mine for gold. I found some, which is always exciting and even managed to find a couple nuggets, which is really exciting. I will be making another post on that later. I also did some salmon fishing and fishing was good! That is another post too, but if you enjoy fishing I highly recommend getting to Alaska at least once to fish for Silver Salmon.
But, most importantly, as I mentioned, I was able to spend time away from all of regular lives issues and talk with God. I have a lot of things up in the air, some big decisions to make and He helped with those. He worked in my heart, showed me a lot of things I need to work on in my life and gave me a better understanding about a lot of things. He gives me so much more than I expect or deserve; physical things, spiritual gifts, peace, joy, love, and much, much more.
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
Praise You and all that You are, I marvel at Your creation, Your love for us, Your mercy and grace that You show us. I thank You for the gift of salvation and forgiveness that was paid for by Your Son Jesus Christ. I thank You for helping me see and understand things better. About my life, about You and Jesus, and the peace and comfort You give me as I struggle with decisions. I ask in Jesus name that You help guide my steps, that You make me sensitive to Your wishes for me that I not proceed down the wrong path. I also ask that You draw me closer to You and that You draw loved ones to You. Show us all Your plan for our lives and keep us from making the wrong decisions. Those who have gone down the wrong path, show us the way to get back to the path You have laid out for us that we may better serve You.
Thank you all for your time. I hope the past week has been good to you all and that you have been blessed, and been a blessing to others. Try to be a blessing to others as you go through your day.
