Psalm 25:14, 15 
The Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them. My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare. (NIV)

God-friendship is for God-worshipers; They are the ones he confides in. If I keep my eyes on God, I won’t trip over my own feet. (MSG)

A family drove for many hours to arrive at the Glorieta Conference Center near Santa Fe, New Mexico. The family had been talking for weeks about their plans for hiking the trails in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. 

At last, they arrived and unpacked their belongings. Dad finally gathered his family for their first hike. After the first mile or so of their journey up the trail with its stones and stream and sights, the son asked, “When are we going hiking? This is just walking.”

Some people realize at similar moments that what they thought would be a great adventure feels, in reality, a lot like yesterday and the day before. When they arrive at a place and take stock of where they are, how far they have come, and also how far they have to go, then they begin to understand how a long walk is more special than simply placing one foot in front of another. 

Each step moves us through our adventure. The Great Adventure of Life is less about a destination and more about the journey. 

In the first mile of the way, that boy saw boulders as big as a house, a stream in the summertime from higher up the mountain but with no obvious source, a small green snake about eighteen inches long, forests of Aspen and evergreen, and a sky so blue it defies description. 

It was the great theologian Ferris Bueller who said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” 

God shows his wonders to those willing to notice them. Our Father in heaven directs our paths when we are determined to follow after him, to walk with him, and to walk before him. 

God confides in those who seek to know and experience him. He is the Path Leader for our best adventures. 

What will you miss today if you don’t look around?

I will keep walking this adventure with Jesus and look around to see what he shows me.

 
 
 
 
 

Our Father, turn my walk into a hike. Turn my eyes away from my woes and toward the beauty, wonder, and delight of all you have created. I want to know you and experience in the journey before me today. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
