Roadtrips are a time of intimacy; getting to know friends, old or new at a whole new level.
You see your world & theirs from a new perspective.
All get to listen & to speak.
We tell stories about past memories, present realities & future dreams.
We create new memories & a new history.
This summer I and several other ladies took a roadtrip with an Ancient Shepherd through Psalm Twenty-Three.
We roamed through range land & wheat fields. We faced dark valleys in a thunderstorm while climbing to sun-kissed mountain peaks.
The Shepherd talked about cattle ranchers & sheep farmers.
He told stories about sheep & shepherds, wheat & weeds, soil & dirt, flocks & vineyards .
He told of traveling through storms, wind, deserts & valleys.
Mostly He talked about his life as The Shepherd– past & present.
We entered into personal relationship with Him in the now of our lives.
The personal relationship we signed up for became reality.
A Map & A Dream
We took nothing with us except:
- A Map
- The six verses of Psalm 23
- A Dream
- To hear his Voice
- To sense his Presence
WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED!
We discovered a simple way to have real relationship with Jesus.
We could easily sense his presence . We could hear his voice.
Prayer became a delight not just a duty.
We learned about the follies of sheep & the faithfulness of shepherds.
