Wyoming to Montana

We spent the night in Wyoming, just a few miles from the state line of Montana. The West really is a sight to behold. Pictures cannot capture the breathtaking scenery. Yet, we continue to take them, one after another, hoping to hold on to the memories.

There is a serenity involved with the picturesque scenery. It would benefit anyone dealing with high levels of stress, or jaded enthusiasm to take a road trip through the West. The glory of God can only be missed, if, you decide to ignore it.

My father owns the cattle on a thousand hills comes to mind, as we see the wide open ranges covered with livestock. Horses roaming free, even antelope. I have never seen a antelope, but I know know they are not deer.

The whole idea of Psalm 50:10-11, “For every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the insects are mine,” is just another way of saying that everything belongs to God. God is sovereign.

So we ride along like a modern day, ‘covered wagon,’ thinking of songs like, “where the deer and the antelope play, where seldom is heard a discouraging word,” echoing through our memories.

To some it might sound sentimental, and lame. I couldn’t care less. I loved hearing AB sing, ‘ I should have been a cowboy, I should have learned to rope and ride.’

When we got outside of Billings, Montana, and moved toward Great Falls for the night, we ended up on a road construction project. The road was muddy and now we look like we have been somewhere. It started raining and our rig is more than muddy.

The next morning, we awoke to our heater fan continuously whirring at 5 am. The strange part was that the heater wasn’t on. We were using a electric plug in heater we bought on our last mission trip.

When AB located the problem, it was a leak from the water pipe above the heater, hitting the electric contact. Problem solved.

I couldn’t help but to praise and thank God! Having recently viewed the historic Battlefield of Custards Last Stand, we didn’t wake up to a battle cry, or have to deal with whether the water was pure or poisoned. We have come a long way in history.

I know every century has their problems, but God being faithful to his people is not one of them.

Thanks to Jesus, when we encounter problems, we only have to look for the potential benefit. All things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose.

More songs slide into to my mind, ‘The Victory belongs to Jesus. The Victory belongs to Him. Also, ‘It may look we’re surrounded, but we’re surrounded by Him. This is how we fight our battles, this is how we fight our battles.’

We give glory to God.

Thanks for listening.

Unlocking your Dreams

I have a dream. It is helping others reach for and realize their dreams!

I wish I knew then, what I know now! I coulda, shoulda, woulda done things a little different.

Now, I realize, even though dreams seem far away and lofty , like clouds, they are attainable! We just have to move closer.

I should have realized ingenuity and creativity comes from God, and when we partner with him, we will get the best results!

I could have noticed that those who dream are like artist. They draw upon the cloudy dream until they paint a crystal clear picture.

Vision always begins in the heart. What your heart envisions, your mind and body will follow.

I actually have no regrets. Dreams are like anything else, subject to a process. However, we can make them more timely by taking action!

A dream will stay a dream until we take steps toward it!

My vision is clear. ” I am called to inspire and motivate others through amplifying the word of God in their lives.

I focus first on connecting people to Biblical Hope.

This is vital in my coaching, because Biblical Hope doesn’t disappoint. It has power that increases as it connects to the love of God, and partners with Him by faith.

Biblical hope has the ability to unlock your dreams. But, you have to open the door and take steps forward.

If you just dream, it’s cloudy. It’s not clear yet, because it’s your dream. It’s waiting on you to see what’s possible!

That’s where I am able to help. I can help you get to the heart of the vision through coaching. Your heart is like a treasure map, full of revelation waiting to be discovered.Once your heart draws the big picture, then steps have to ┬ábecome actionable.

We can work together to build concrete steps, or maybe even a escalator! Gods the architect! Your the designer!

What’s my role?

I listen and ask questions that both inspire and challenge you to write the vision and make it plain!

I am encouraging you dreamers! Your dreams are attainable! Dream Big! You can turn the ‘impossible to possible!’

Get your ‘Biblical Hope,’ in gear and open the door!

Next step! Write it down, pray for clarity! Ask God to partner with you. What seems impossible just may be possible!
