Have you ever had something weighing so heavy on your mind that it seems impossible to trust God? And then have you ever experienced the amazing joy that comes when God works everything out and leaves you wondering why you ever worried in the first place? I have many times throughout my life and just recently he has amazed me again with his greatness.
Do you have a place that is your favorite place to go when you need a vacation from life? I do. That place is called Babcock State Park in Fayette County, WV. It may seem like a regular state park to some people, but to me it's so much more than that for many reasons.
Have you ever had so many things going on at one time that you felt overwhelmed by life? Or have you ever just had one big thing hanging on your head you wonder if you will ever get past it? I sure have. Being overwhelmed by life is a scary feeling, but the good news is we don't have to do it all by ourselves.
If I were to ask you what is something you never leave the house without, what would you say? It would most likely be your cell phone, wallet, and keys. All those things are essential items to have when you leave your home, but there's something else I almost always never leave without: my water bottle.
