So Here I Go

“So Elijah did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.

Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land.” 1 King 17: 5-7

Have you ever wondered why the brooks dry up in your life? You tell yourself that you have done everything right. You follow the rules of life and believe that God has directed your steps to where you are. You settle down into life hoping that your story will close with a happy ever after fairy tale ending.

Then a crisis appears in the horizon and you begin to question God. You can’t understand why he would bring this on when you had so many other dreams. Just as the crisis seems to pass, another one comes your way. This one weakens you and bitterness begins to cling to your heart and soul.

Before being consumed with cursing God a look back into his word answers the question for Elijah and for us. “Then the word of the Lord came to him. ‘Go at once to Zarephath of Sidon and stay there.’ ”1King 17:8-9

That simple two letter word, GO. Why would God tell Elijah to go? Didn’t God send him to the brook and create the provisions he needed to live a fulfilled life? If so, why did he move him again? And if God moved Elijah how is God trying to move us? It may not be an actual move from our present home but a transition into unchartered territories where we have to rely more on God and less on ourselves. So here I go. I am not sure where but if I listen intently I am sure God will point me in the right direction.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
