Healing the land


I don’t know if you noticed or not, but I don’t make regular fishing or hunting stories the priority in Sunday posts. I take a moment to share some personal thoughts and observations tied to a Bible verse.

We just entered into the New Year a few weeks ago. New Year brings new hope and new directions – hope of a “dawning” of good times, or at least the strength to deal with those times that aren’t. Like many others, I feel that our great country is at a crossroads right now. I’m hoping – no, praying – that we the people take the right path as a nation. We face fiscal issues that seem hopeless, moral issues that seem insurmountable and, frankly, growing distrust of our leaders’ ability to do anything about it. A battle brewing to preserve fundamental cornerstones that America was built and prospered on. If we continue down the path we’ve been going, catching fish and hunting ducks will be the least of our worries. I find hope for a good, new day, though. I find it here:

“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”  

  —  2 Chronicles 7:14

  1. Wonderful post Kinny! I too agree with what you said about the direction that our country is headed, and I too believe that it comes down to individual americans making the right decisions to follow Gods instructions in order for us to turn this country around. I feel so blessed to be able to experience Gods wonderful outdoors and pray that he does not take His hand off of our nation. Your verse 2 Chronicles 7:14 sums it up perfectly! Thanks for the encouraging word!! America needs it.

  2. GReat post Kinney and so good to get to see you and Diane yesterday at the show. I’m thinking that “lake life” has agreed with you both tremendously! Happy week!
