Wednesday's Walk....North to Alaska

My thoughts have been back in Alaska rather often this past week.  We had a little staff reunion of sorts last week at our mission conference.  So sweet to fellowship with those who share a love of Alaska with me.  They get it.
What do I love about Alaska?
...having great opportunities to share the Gospel with others.
...meeting wonderful people from all over the world.
...seeing the beauty of a land still somewhat "untouched" by man.
...experiencing God moments (You know, those moments you realize that only a great and mighty God could arrange so perfectly).
...being a part of something that is way bigger than myself.
My list could go on and on.  God has used my time in Alaska to reveal Himself to me in amazing ways.  I am as David was wondering in awe of all the things God has done for me.
Then King David went in and sat before the LORD, and he said: 'Who am I, O Sovereign LORD, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far?'  2 Samuel 7:18
I am reminded also of my favorite verse in Acts...
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.   Acts 4:13








Being with Jesus is everything.  It has to be first and foremost.  It's how He uses ordinary people such as myself for His purposes.  Alaska takes me out of my comfort zone for His name's sake...and I've come to love every minute of it!

  1. Wow! I loved reading this today! To be known for being with Jesus! Now that's a life worth living!

    ps- I almost wrote about Texas today. We're in New Orleans... ministry call. But home will always be Texas. Your post today inspired me to be content where He has placed me.

    Happy iFellowship Day!
