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 – Psalm 101:2

Psalm 101:2 ”I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Daily D – Psalm 100:3

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—
his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
