As this journey begins there is pure joy in trusting the Lord and there is the sadness in loosing loved ones. You might think you are drawing closer to the Lord but it is a whole new experience when He tells you "You are going to die this year."Daily surrendering all is so real and the joy is unspeakable. I identify with Isaac as he trusted his father as he lead him unto death. Genesis 22:12 and the Israelites as they are being lead out of Egypt by God as the pillar of a cloud. Exodus 13:21. This journey is full of life experiences that everyone can identify with, learn from and be blessed by.My prayer is if you do not have a personal relationship with the Lord that you will acquire a thirst, in deed, to know more about Him. "Seek and you shall find."
