I’m off to see the …..Nope not the Wizard


Dorothy ran down the yellow brick road off to see the wizard? Wonder if she really knew what she was looking for. We knew she wanted to go home, but do you think going by way of a wizard is the way to go home?

The Israelites made a 40 year journey that was only meant for 11 days. I can honestly say that my journey with God has been down many yellow brick roads but wasn’t looking for a wizard.  Not quite sure what I was looking for, or where it was.  I hoped I would know when I saw it.

  2. Yes, I agree that many are searching without knowing for what it is they search! Scripture confirms that God does speak through His Creation, although I believe the Voice is often muffled and dimmed due to Sin (its affect on us and on nature). But it is there. If we would just learn to listen.
