What a great long weekend camping in Kananaskis – Blue Rock Campground (can’t believe that it’s already “last weekend”!). Away from it all…phones, internet, work, busyness. How is it that not showering, sleeping on the ground, and making food over an open fire makes you never want to leave the mere simplicity of it? It’s when I break it down that I ask myself,”Why is it so appealing?!”
It comes down to getting back to the basics, the rawness, the foundation of who we are created to be. Jesus even reminds us to:
Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.
It seems way too easy, to just listen and follow … to become strong and confident on solid ground. Have you simply listened or obeyed today? Today, do you abandon your complicated reasonings and seek to know Him and find His unvarnished strength and wisdom?
Here are a few simple moments captured from this weekend:
