The Point of it All

And what’s my point in posting all those scriptures? To convince you that those Ites have got to go!

I use biblical references in the majority of my posts. This one is no exception. I want to discuss my  perspective of the term ‘Ites’. I will do so in Part 2, but briefly consider these verses in the Bible. They refer to Israel’s escape from Egypt and their conquering of the Promised Land. In addition, these verses are a segway into where I’m headed with this post.


*Note: This is a photo from Mount Nebo in Jordan overlooking the promised land. This is the view God allowed Moses to see just before he died. Moses is said to be buried somewhere in that valley.

Ever wonder how long your trip through the wilderness of your life would last? Are you getting anxious about arriving at your destination? The truth is, none of us really know when we will actually arrive where we’re supposed to be. Our arrival could be much further than we expect; or it could be right now. Only God truly knows the answer to that. However, I can almost guarantee you one thing: a positive attitude about life, and our journey through it will likely expedite that process!

Israel in the Wilderness

God planned to bring the children of Israel through the wilderness under the guidance of Moses (See the Book of Exodus in the Bible, specifically chapter 16). What was supposed to be an 11 day journey turned into 40 years. Even worse, not everyone that was in the wilderness got to see the Promised Land. Why? Simply because of their attitude (See my other post, “Going Up?”). Our attitude in the wilderness determines how quickly we come out.

Adjust your ‘Tude’ Dude

We really shouldn’t be concerned with when God brings us out. We just need to go forth and walk by faith, not by sight. And rest assured, He has no intention of prolonging our stay in our current position (our spiritual state, our job position, our mindset, our financial situation, and so on). God is all about progress and promotion. That’s because He wants to advance His Kingdom, and He can only do so by placing the right people in positions to do His work, and be a benefit to others. However, to get to that ‘position’ we are required to go on a journey. That’s called ‘life’ by the way. That includes learning about God, learning about ourselves, pursuing our calling, and becoming better every day.

Closing Message

I implore you to stay diligent in pursuing your calling, your goals and your vision. Have faith in the fact that as long as we’re moving forward, we will eventually arrive at our destination—and often much sooner than we think!

The 23 Psalm is probably one of the most popular scriptures of all, and chances are you’ve heard it. But as promised, from my post in [Lay a Memorial], I wanted to offer you my insight.

Get to packing… organize your stuff… dress the kids… get yourself dressed…get your house in order…take pictures of your home, your stuff, and your current situation (something I used to do)…say goodbye to your neighbors…saddle your horse…load your car…get the dog’s leash…set up a memorial…do whatever you have to do…and kiss 2010 goodbye! Why? Because you’re leaving ‘there’!

Ever Managed a Project?

Have you ever been given a certain project or task in life that was explicitly designed for you and you alone? Others were considered, but you were the one that was selected to execute it. It could have been a school report, managing a major project at work, coordinating a remodeling project at home, or something else. Chances are you have. If not, you probably will take on one at some point in your life.

Close to Heart
If you were the project manager, you probably held it close to your heart, tried to execute it with precision, and made sure it was well taken care of and completed like it was supposed to be. In short, you gave it your special attention! That includes your care, your efforts, your capabilities, your resources, your protection, and so on.
