  1. Stepping Out On Faith

    by , 10-16-2013 at 02:10 AM
    God sometimes calls us to do some crazy things that look different from this world. But by faith we remain obedient no matter how crazy we look because we know our covenant with God is far greater than anything this world has to offer.

    So we remain abstinent until we are married, we submit to our husbands, we go on mission trips, we donít get drunk, we donít intentionally dress revealing to gain the attention of man, we go to church, we serve, we do whatever God tells us to do, even ...

    Proverbs 28:9

    If anyone turns a deaf ear to my instruction, even their prayers are detestable.


    Ok, I know Iíve been away again. I wonít even apologize this time; just chock it up to another busy fire season (I work at the Oregon Department of Forestry and it was a rough year this fire season), and the general craziness of life.

    Beautiful summer night, warm, light breeze and the bike trail was calling us to ride.

It was time for a break as witnessed by the drops of sweat that had begun to drip down my back so we decided to turn to the left of the trail.
