GO FOR IT
WITH EVERYTHING YOU HAVE 9/26/07
PIX: I saw a kitty cat on the end of a couch
arm and she was leaning towards something on the floor
and getting ready to pounce.
HEARD: Help you overcome by faith. Finally!
parable 9/28/07 GO FOR IT WITH EVERYTHING YOU HAVE
Anna and I spent a few days at the coast and I wanted to
get some good photography. For years I have been
frustrated to see awesome sunsets from our home, but it
is so surrounded by trees, wires and houses that it
makes for lousy photos. I have often thought how
awesome it would be to be on the ocean with absolutely
nothing between me, the sunset and the horizon for a
clear shot of the sun as it goes down. I have had many
years to think about this.
So at the ocean, I had decided that we would be out on
the beach at sunset to get that long hoped for shot. We
had spent the day out and about and it was getting near
time, so I took the shortest route to parking lot and
the beach access. We arrived and there was a sand dune
between me and the horizon. I went for it like a bee
coming out of its hive. I am sure if anyone had heard
me, they would have thought I was loony. I said outloud
over and over again, “Lord I WANT this, I REALLY want
this. I want this shot, please help me climb this
mountain! I have waited a long time to get to the
horizon. I want this, please HELP me!!” I was panting
and pushing, dragging and cramping, but after years of
thinking about it, I wanted that shot. I made it to the
top and started shooting photos like mad. Anna came
huffing and puffing behind me and thought I was
absolutely crazy. She was still talking about it when
we collapsed in the car.
WORD TO PONDER: GO FOR IT 9/26/07
Beloved, sometimes the climb is straight up and hard.
But if it is My will for you to climb that mountain, I
have already prepared you for it. No matter how you
feel, what your capacities are or are not, I want you up
and out and conquering. You have been malingering in
dysfunctional hopelessness long enough. I have put that
vision in your horizon for a long time. Deep inside, it
is there beckoning you. Now that you know, it is just
over that hill, GO FOR IT LITTLE ONE. Climb, pursue,
press through, DONT QUIT.
Dont give up.
Up, up, up. Soon you will be at the top and see the
fullness of what has only been a seed. And you shall
know it is I Who has brought you to this place.
1 Sam 30:7-8 NKJV
So David inquired of the LORD, saying, "Shall I
pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?" And He
answered him, "Pursue , for you shall surely overtake
them and without fail recover all."
