PATH INTO THE STORM Road to Abrams Falls Cades Cove, TN Great Smoky Mountains (c) Bryan Nowak Sometimes, by God's grace He takes us by the hand and leads us to peaceful green meadows. But, sometimes He directs us into the storm, for in the storm we learn dependence, endurance, and develop character that validates the hope in which we stand by faith. In the good times we SAY that we trust in the Lord. In the difficult times we KNOW beyond a shadow of doubt where our hope lies. Romans 5:2-4 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope. at Cades Cove - Great Smoky Mountains National Park

MURKY REFLECTIONS The puddle was almost too muddy and murky for a reflection.This reminds me of the story of David in the Bible. King David was known as a man after God's own heart, yet he allowed sin to creep in and muddy his relationship with God to where he no longer reflected Him with his attitudes and actions. There was only one way to be restored and made clean. Look at David's prayer very closely. Perhaps it ought to be the yearning of your heart as well. - - - - - - - Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb; you taught me wisdom in that secret place. Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you. Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, you who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness. Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise. You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings. My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. - - - - - - - Psalm 51:1-17 (c) Bryan Nowak at Fort Valley, Georgia

Antioch Baptist Church Established in 1829 Pastor: Rev. Bradley A. Jones 2093 Thomaston Hwy, Butler, GA 31006 A contrast of life and new life. No, this is not a picture of life and death, for those who were born into this world and gave their lives to Jesus gained a new life... an eternal life. Physical death is but a portal for Christians to pass from this world into the heavenly realms of God's infinite glory where Jesus lives and has prepared a place for them forever. 190 years of lives being prepared for living on earth and dancing in the streets of heaven -- thank you Antioch Baptist Church for your faithfulness.

Weeds in Your Tracks The rails are shiny. Trains travel them regularly. But weeds are growing up in the rail bed. I suppose it must be a real challenge to constantly maintain the steel, timbers and gravel for thousands of miles of rail lines without having a few weeds here and there. Where am I going with this? Consider your life and activities. If you are a Christian then you may find yourself very busy with activities that abound with every church. Don't get me wrong -- activities are good if they fulfill the purpose for which you exist: to glorify God and lead others to faith in Him. But in the busyness, sometimes we can get weeds growing in our lives because we have failed to pray sincerely, study God's Word diligently, and practice Christ-like behavior and attitudes whether in the public eye or in our private times. Just like in your yard and this rail bed, weeds can get out of control quickly, and this is true for our lives too. Consistently walking and talking with God, learning and growing in our faith, and regular and frequent time on our knees will help prevent and eliminate the weeds. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1:7) Fort Valley, GA (c) Bryan Nowak at Fort Valley, Georgia

Antioch Baptist Church Established in 1829 Pastor: Rev. Bradley A. Jones 2093 Thomaston Hwy, Butler, GA 31006 I could not resist stopping for this beautiful rural Georgia church. Imagine the countless lives that have been transformed by the power of Jesus Christ as His light has shown forth from this property and God's people for 190 years. I am thankful for gospel-preaching congregations of all sizes and in all locations across my state and around the world that endure and stand boldly throughout generations to be a beacon of hope in a world where people are lost, hopeless, helpless and without direction.
