Joshual 9-11; 1 Corinthians 6

Joshua 9: 14 The men of Israel sampled their provisions but did not inquire of the LORD.
Joshual 10: 25 Joshua said to them, "Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous.
1 Corinthians 6: 7 The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? 8 Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers.

I am back and I don't know how or if I should attempt to explain what we did, what we saw, what I am feeling.....
I feel changed and I think that is what I need to focus on the change in me, the awareness......not to be preached on or given away but to somehow just live in it??? Trust there is a change???
So many times I heard...." I am ahead of you " and in hearing that it was and is easier to live resting in Him.
So maybe that's it....to live in 'inquiring of the Lord' ....listening....moving.....to risk everything.....to be strong and courageous.....to just love God and follow Christ....??? If we don't If I don't.....

It takes hope in a hopeless world
Looking for hope in a hopeless world
Trying to find love in these hateful times
Try to stay strong but my mind is weak
Looking for hope in a hopeless world

Widespread Panic Hope In A Hopeless World lyrics

i'll look forward to reading more about your trip!

great stuff from John Fischer yesterday on his daily e-mail, which made me think of you and what you've written today.

..you can’t experience the power of God without risking something of yourself in the process.

“It is not that we think we can do anything of lasting value by ourselves. Our only power and success come from God.” (2 Corinthians 3:5)

It's amazing how we are the ones who are changed when we step out in faith and obidience to help someone else. I am glad you are back - I missed you :)

Don't doubt your experience. You're right on with living in it! In my own experience (very little) getting to the point of "living in it" is a process, that starts with clipping a wave here, catching a wave there, and gaining consistency.

I am thankful you are back, and safe, and most of all, you have been touched by God. Bless You.

Welcome back. Change is good. And awareness of that change is even better. Do just live it.
