"We have heard of Moab's pride-her overweening prideand conceit,her pride and arrogance and haugtiness of her heart.(Jeremiah 29-33 NIV)

In the Alaska wildreness many of adventures,have set with the arrogance and pride,I can do this journey my way,I know everything there is to know about this.Proceeding on without checking in frist with the Lord,there is always a high cost for this mind set.A well planned so to speak,and well equiped with worldly thinking-of th journey will be great success.Was going to being journey of failure.As this passage in Jeremiah-her boast accomplish nothing.Everyday we hear of countless stories of nature lovers-journing unprepared for the unforseen.In the widerness of Alaska-I do no venture anywhere in Alaska,without consulting the Lord.There is slpendid beauty-and awesome wonders,one can be blind sided by prideful-or haughty thinking.To venture out not equiped with the proper gear.

In (verse31-32)How the destroyer has fallen on these fields of fruite-and grapes.There is wailing and weeping going-due to the pridefulness-and the haughtiness-of Moab,lack of obedience to the Lord.It stretches far and wide.This is a serious condition for ones spirit to dwell in.There is soul redemption-in the stepping in obedience to Lord.Sometimes I didn't understand before becoming a christian-why some life circumstance were a complete failure.No that I am a new creation-in Jesus christ,I can reconize the difference in my lifes direction.From walking in disobedience-and self will,or any prideful fashion.To walking dilgently on the path-the Lord has paved for me.Surrounded in his holy light,and keeping from the paths of endless life failures.To a road of promise-prosterity,ans spiritual success.

In(verse 33)The failure of Moab-no one to tread on the grapes-to make wine.The wine press as stopped,and thier joy and gladness were gone.Form sripture passage-made me realize how grateful,I am for my spirits-gladness,and my spirit if full of infinte joy.Becuase I choose today to walk in the light of the living God.This is a gift better than all the worlds silver and gold,this world could ever offer me.Thank be to the Lord,he has give new horizons-and ventures to embark on in the widerness of Alaska.God Bless,you one in all each new day.

Yes, flow is a bit rough, but I liked your creativity with Alaska.
Also watch out for mixing present and past tense adjectives.

>> There is soul redemption-in the stepping in obedience to Lord.<<

I like that line. I'm glad you stressed this.

Nice post, Deborah. The presentation is a bit rough, but your heart is very evident.
