I’ve been busy preparing for an adventure. A real faith walk. After many posts about traveling for business (Fellowship on the Road), I’m going off-road literally and figuratively here as I ready myself to explore the Bechler River Trail in Wyoming with my teen-age son. I really couldn’t think about what to post to relate a recreational trip, but then I was reading Psalm 8 and realized that there can be a professional and spiritual benefit of taking time off from work.
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?” (Psalm 8:3-4 NIV)
I look forward to being in the Rockies, where I can consider His heavens, the work of His fingers, the moon and the stars, and have some one-on-one time with my boy and share it all with him. To see a little more why God is mindful of me and cares for me. To understand just how big this world He created is, and breathe deep the mountain air. And to breathe deep His Spirit.
Along with that, I pray that I can spend some time renewing my relationship with my Lord and Savior, and bring back a recharged spirit, ready to share His story with all who I meet in the workplace. Thank you, Lord for creating the earth in all its splendor.
“Thou madest him to have dominion over the work of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet” (Psalm 8:6 KJV)
Keep my feet steady as I treasure the moments…
