Top Adventures

I love the adventure of following God and seeing where that leads. The Bible promises that: “If you trust in the Lord with all your heart and don’t lean on your own understanding, He will direct your path.” I have trusted in that promise since I was 18 years old.

Years ago, I surrendered my life to the Lord and told Him I would go where He wanted me to go, do what He wanted me to do and say what He wanted me to say. I was recently reminded of all the great places that I have been blessed to have travelled to and the great doors that God has opened for me. Jesus said it this way:

“If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.” – Matthew 10:39 NLT

Here are various lists, goals and dreams from my journey so far. They are my way of giving tribute and thanks to God for all He has done. Every good thing in my life is from the Lord. He is so faithful!

How many of these places have you visited? What common interests and activities do we share? What adventures is God challenging you to do?

    WOW! A ‘word’ that really does not do justice to this list of yours! I remember when you first mentioned about writing a blog. So I think that this should also be added to you list of accomplishments Mark. Becoming computer literate in all that is required here, is quite an achievement too! Oh, and I can definitely recommend taking an Alaskan cruise and include the Hubbard Glazier when you do, and in clear weather. Out of all of this listing, I cannot believe I have done something that you have yet to do 🙂
