Iím thinking of going camping, though Iíve never been. It will be interesting to see how this will turn out. Iíve never been one for living off the land, however I think this will be a good experience for me. My preacher said to try and find all the things around me that is God. I donít have a clue what he means by that, but to humor him I said ďokĒ.
Early light (too early light) and I am on my hike to find the perfect place to make camp. I can feel the sun wrapping its warmth around me as I walk. In a very strange way it is almost like through these beams of sun God is wrapping His arms around me in the warmest embrace I have ever had.
Heard a little spring last night somewhere in the distance. I never did know exactly where it was located. But it was wonderful to hear, because I was not able to sleep. That was like a sweet little lullaby from my Father so His little girl could sleep peacefully.
While looking for some vegetation I smelled the sweetest breath on the wind. I realized this breath could only come from the Lord. He was all around me and I talked with Him for hours.
I have to leave for home today. I really want to stay here. It is hard to leave one home for another. Especially one as close to God as this one, but He can be anywhere I ask Him to be if I just ask Him.
The preacher seemed pleased that I could find God in so many places while out on my camping adventure. Imagine how many more places I can find Him if I just look.
Then again I might not have to look, if I sit very still He may just embrace me again.
