A friend and his wife were considering traveling to Alaska –a trip that the husband had long dreamed of taking. He kept talking about how great it would be to stay in a log cabin without electricity, to hunt moose, and drive a dog team instead of a car.
“If we decided to live there permanently, away from civilization, what would you miss the most?” he asked his wife.
She replied, “You.”
Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.
Thought for the day
1 John 5:3, “This is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome” (NIV).
If something God asks you to do feels like a burden, what’s wrong? May well be procrastination. When we don’t act right away, it becomes harder to do the longer we wait. But when we do what God says, the most refreshing freedom will come into our lives.
