I have wanted to go to this spot for over a year now and finally made it! The Lord told me to pay attention and this is what I observed.
Neil and I were headed to the river to pick up his four-wheeler so he could have it for tomorrow morning’s work day at his deer camp. After we got over halfway to the river, he got a text message stating it had been cancelled due to the weather.
Neil and I were getting hungry so we stopper and picked up a pizza. I asked him if we could eat on the mountain and watch the sun set, and he agreed.
The road was long and winding and got steeper as we neared the top. Once we got there, we noticed a carload of youth; one girl and two boys. They kept looking at us as though they were doing something they shouldn’t. After a spell, they got out of their vehicle. They took a few selfies and then began playing frisbee.
Neil and I enjoyed our supper and once I finished eating, I got out of the truck and took a picture of the view. I remember thinking my perspective is limited due to their being so many obstacles in my way. All I could see was a tiny glimpse of the landscape between a small break in the trees. As we headed home, a truck with a goat pulled out in front of us. The goat reminded me of Matthew 25:31-46 where it discusses how the Lord will separate the sheep and goats.
I believe what He was saying during this trip is: we need to be prepared and willing to change our plans and ways in an instant. We need to share the Good News at any cost. The road and journey is going to be hard and tedious. I think we only have a small window represented by narrow view and their will be many things they enemy will use trying to distract us from our call. The youth represent who we need to be raising up and pouring into during this season. The time is over for playing games and being self-absorbed. I presume if we don’t step out and step up, America and our future generations will end up being separated and hauled off with the goats. The time is now my friends! We need to boldly go and proclaim the Gospel of Christ!
