Motivational quote: "Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence." -Lin Yutang

Thought #1: People walk where there is no road because of the destination they see. So, what we see with faith, and travel towards together, builds up the road of hope for others to follow.

Thought #2: Too much hope will put the highway department out of business. And the environmental lobby will be hacked that you destroyed a field in the country.

Thought #3: This illustrates the value of community. One person walks through the open countryside, a few blades of grass bend, and soon recover. A group passes through, they leave unmistakable evidence of their path.

Proverbs 19:2(NLT) ->Listening pastor? You who hopes to radically change your church overnight?

Proverbs 19:3(NLT) ->"Why did this tragedy happen?" The answer may well be in this verse.

Proverbs 19:14(NLT) ->God alone can make a marriage work: Seek His arrangement for your marriage, not your parents, and certainly not the one you can have just because of your money and houses.

Proverbs 19:17(NLT) ->Even in the scope of church ministries, this applies!

Proverbs 19:21(NLT) ->His purpose, with or without you. Obey and be with His purpose!

Revelation 4:7 ->All of creation!

1 Samuel 12:20 ->Obedience is the responsibility of the people, whomever is king!!

1 Timothy 4:12 ->Actions support or overrule people's presuppositions and prejudices. Timothy could act in accordance with people's expectations of his youth, or he could set the example, live differently than was the cultural expectation and norm for a young preacher, and therefore overcome the presumption.

Lord God, I pray for You to be evident among us today. Let the worship of You around this town, state, nation, and world today spark our hearts into obedience.
Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
