Walk or Wander

I don’t make resolutions.  Any changes in my life started last year when it counted. I knowjordan-river that I have gradually built up expression of my faith over the most of last year. I’ve seen people who burst on the scene with fervency or zeal, if you will, and become shooting stars. I’ve always had faith in God. I let it wane due to circumstances. No more. The future, that started last year, is to build back upon the foundations inside me.

I once sat in the sound booth at PTM and ruminated on the loss of why I was there. I concluded that it was because I became heavy on doing instead of being. The Lord has blessed me with fresh new life. I don’t intend to take that lightly and squander it.

I want to walk out the path God has given me.  He has given me a wife who is like-minded.  We shall walk together.  Our connection is strong.

No longer shall we wander like the Israelites did for forty years in the wilderness, because of their unbelief.  The Promised Land lies ahead.  We shall walk towards it and shall see the Jordan parted, even though at flood stage, to allow passage there.

Once over, there are still battles to be fought, but God is with us.  If you intend to make a resolution, do you intend to continue to wander, or do you intend to find your place and walk towards your promise?

About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
