“Not for the sake of fame nor glory, but for the sake of my soul, Hikers hike.” -Catch Up (Laughing Heart Hostel)
I went to church yesterday . We watched the Francis Chan video where he discribes eternity with a rope. The man conducting the service ended it with the point that we should spend our time loving others, not ourselves. That we should live our lives unafraid of the bumps and bruises if life.
That’s what I want to do. I want to separate the love of my Savior from the hypocrisy and pain of the average American church. I want to love and live like those who live by love. I want to feed those who are hungry, give water to the thirsty, give shelter to those without shelter, and love those who know no love.
I’ve been thinking about myself lately. Who I am and who I want to be. The problems within me that I hide like buried treasure. But this treasure holds no value. I don’t need it and I don’t want it. And yet, I bring it back to myself like a yoyo I try throwing away, but yank it back at the last moment. Maybe by the end of this trip I will have burnt the string.
Anyways, we will be leaving Hot Springs. This town is like a vortex that keeps everyone in for days at a time. I’m happy to be moving again. After a couple of days you begin to feel stagnant. It’s always nice to get the blood moving again.
On a completely random note: Dad just farted in Zoey’s face. Happy trails.
