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
