When God says, “Go!”

I was very blessed by Tim’s sermon yesterday. Here are three thoughts that I wish to share from it.

What is God Thinking When He Asks You to, “Go!”?

1. Jeremiah 29:11  “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD,       thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
When God asks you to, “Go!”  He is thinking of what is good for you and your future

2. Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
When God asks you to, “Go!” He is thinking about what is good for His kingdom. What makes this more amazing is that God is thinking that YOU can, by His power, do something good for His Kingdom.

3. Revelation 21:3 “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.”
When God asks you to, “Go!” He is thinking about what is good for Him. And in His mind, You are good for Him – What Love!

For some extra deep thoughts, think about the great stories in the Bible… Noah, Abraham, Moses – and many more, and imagine what this world would be like today if they had said, “No!” When God asked them to, “Go!”

“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” ~ Isaiah 6:8 ~

A Frame!

“Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it;” ~ Psalm 127:1 ~

Every visit out to the HoofTrek site is filled with anticipation because each time we go, progress on the house has increased. Today’s visit resulted in finding the frame assembled and in place – occasion enough to post some photos! It’s exciting for us to watch our new home take shape so quickly.

We were also privileged to see this owl, sitting up on one of the tall palm trees, whose top had been struck off by lightning.

Before there were two…

…. houses, but now there are none!

Before…

After Tim returned from Australia a couple of weeks ago, we were finally able to meet with him and discuss the house plans. We had two small wooden houses to work with, and Tim said we could join them together to make one.

After tossing around some different ideas, we finally found something that worked. And earlier this week Tim met with the workmen (the house father’s that work for Tim on various on-site projects) and gave them the plans.

When we took a walk up there early Thursday morning we found that both houses had been dismantled, and the cement stumps that the houses sit on, moved to the new site where they have now been arranged, ready for putting it all back together.

‘Tis all quite exciting for us as you can imagine. They plan to work full-time on our house until it is done, so we are hopeful that it will be finished in about 3 or so weeks (these little houses don’t take much to put together).

After!

After!
