- For the Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hand ……………………….. you have lacked nothing.
I lifted this from “Daily Bread: Felt so blessed that I thought I would pass it on called “Traveling Mercies”
If you began your journey you could start from a place called Why, Arizona, you could then travel through Uncertain Texas. Heading northeast you could make a rest stop in Dismal, Tennessee. After that you could end your trip in Panic, Pennsylvania. All real towns in the USA. Sometimes this is exactly what the journey of life feels like. We can very easily identify with the Israelites difficulties in the Wilderness. (As referred to in Deuteronomy 2:7).
Yes, life can be hard. But do we see the other parallels? We create our own itinerary, getting our needs met
- All the Israelites grumbled against Moses and Aaron, and the whole assembly said to them, “If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this wilderness!
We sometimes turn from God’s way
Deuteronomy 1: 42-43
- But the Lord said to me, “Tell them, ‘Do not go up and fight, because I will not be with you. You will be defeated by your enemies.’”
- So I told you, but you would not listen. You rebelled against the Lord’s command and in your arrogance you marched up into the hill country.
Are we guilty of paralleling the Israelites path. God assures us that if we follow His path, He’ll deliver us into a far better place than Dismal, Tennessee. (Deuteronomy 2:7 ; Philippians 4:19) We need to follow God’s roadmap. If you head out for another six hours you could end up in Assurance, West Virginia if we let God Direct our paths (Psalm 119:35), We’ll journey in joy with Him at the wheel. Blessed Assurance indeed! What are we fretting about. Let God take the “Wheel”.
Praise the Lord. We’re back in the chapel!

Now that we are back worshipping in the chapel it feels like we’re home. There is however much work to be done on the rest of the building.
This weeks progress includes;
- doors on kitchen, prep work done for applying hardy plank on outside walls of kitchen. Repairs to stucco will be done as well.
- cleaning up the last of the burnt wood with new material along the roofs edge.
- roofer scheduled for first week in August while framing is completed inside the kitchen
- the electrician is due the 2nd week of August.
- that will be followed by plumber, drywall and paint then flooring.
All in all coming together quite nicely but we are still looking at September or even as late as October for completion. There is still some minor finishing to do in the Sanctuary area which will be completed along with similar work in the rest of the building.
God’s blessings on you all.JACK PEAKE
