I’m really tired, but want to update y’all, so this update will be short. Thanks again for following the journey!
This week took us out of Virginia! It’s nice to be in the state that borders my home state of GA. The mileage this week was as follows: 52.5, 41.3, 50.4, 48.6 , 49.9, 56.4 for a total of 299.1! This brings the last 3 week total to 902. It feels great to look back on the last 3 weeks and see that 300/week average.
This journey has taught me much. The trail, people, weather, rocks, roots, car engines, among other things have all played their part. I believe God set us in motion to accomplish a mission much bigger than we are capable of understanding. In all honesty, I still don’t understand why. What I do know is this: God sent a vision and mission to his people, we have responded and followed the best we know how, and through it all he has been and is being glorified. When hearing from God, I believe it’s best if we don’t always try to fully understand, but simply obey his calling. It’s comforting to know he called me by name and is sanctifying me daily. I’ve mentioned Isaiah 55:8-11 many times, but here it is again. I hope our faith may be strengthened through this passage. Love you guys. I’ve enjoyed sharing this journey with you.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
