This morning I found this video from mate Steve Grace that he has recorded with the Watoto Children’s choir. I remember Steve saying what a challenge it was getting the primary shoot done in the outback. There’s a lot to be said for dusty trails. You need time to get where you’re going and an understanding of the wear and tear it can take on your equipment. If you jump into the trip without this understanding you’ll probably travel unprepared and unequipped. Steve and his team know the bush and so they meet those challenges head on. The right equipment, the right attitude and the perseverance to deal with the occasional equipment failure or weather change get the job done.
These are some of the great attributes of faith. When we walk through life we can be fooled into thinking; “If I have enough faith, life will be sweet”. The wiser road says if I have enough faith I know the journey isn’t the destination. Heaven isn’t a ‘place on earth’. Jesus said he would 'go' and then he would 'come' to 'take' us where he had prepared a place. The catch cry of this video is the line “I Believe”. I love an old line I’ve heard many times. “If faith was easy everyone would be doing it”. Sure we go through the highs and lows, the times of banquets and the times when it feels like famine. Today just remind yourself of those two words; “I Believe”.
Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
