I like going out with my husband but he likes it more than I do. I know it and he knows it too! I look forward to going out with him curious where we will go, where we will set camp and what we are going to eat lol!
Whenever we are out together… he takes care of the camp and I take care of the food. We like it and enjoy doing it.
I like spending time in the woods because of the quietness that it gives, there is something so peaceful about it if you listen. The world is so busy and so loud. Someone told me once that it is too quiet here and scary! We get so used to the noise all around us that it makes us afraid to be still and do nothing.
The Word of God says, “Be still and know that I am God.” It is not an easy thing to do.”
Just because it’s quiet doesn’t mean that it’s boring!
I call it a PICNIC!
That’s why I get excited to go out. It is a DATE! A PICNIC for me and my hubby.
I know when I go back home that I feel tired especially when it’s a long hike but it’s a good tiredness. Breathing fresh air, drown my mind with pure thoughts, get in shape, but mostly refreshed. These are the some of the reasons why I like to go out and spend time in the woods.
The peace and rest that the Lord gives is a rest for a weary soul.
I find this easy but not for Mike! He is constantly moving, working, filming. I had to tell him often, can you relax. He tries but it is difficult for him because sometimes there are scenes that only he can see and he must absolutely get it on film!
I know that he needs to go out to film and to work but I have also heard him say to me, “I had a good talk with the Lord.” That is music to my ears!
This is the major reason why we go out… DISCONNECT to be able to CONNECT with God. I hope that it will do the same for you.
