I have often said that we have felt God leading us to our land in Nebraska. The other day when I spoke with Chris, he left me some verses that he said might help me — they had to do with obeying God. It makes me wonder, now, whether we are being guided or led to the land in Nebraska or if we have been commanded to go to Nebraska. And is there a difference? The former would be like a string of breadcrumbs leading us to the land — we can follow or not at our own will, but following obviously means we get to a place where God wants us. The latter would mean that to fail to follow God’s command would be hazardous to our communion. Or maybe this is all semantics. I’m sorry to have wasted your time with this post, but I guess I realize now that either way, to follow God’s lead is to reap the rewards he has planned for us, but to ignore his guidance would be detrimental to the fellowship we cherish and desire.
One of the things I like about blogging is that I can sit down and type out my thoughts. Typing out my thoughts forces me to think through issues or questions in a (hopefully) logical fashion. I also like that I can post my thoughts and get feedback from someone who visits.
