Jesus speaks of narrow gates wide roads masculine journey is filled with many twists and turns. So how do we keep from losing heart trying to find a good way when life feels more like a losing battle and something worth dying for, grab your gear and come on a quest band of brothers will serve as the guides and what we call masculine journey masculine journey starts here now, which is been an adventure this week been an adventure I can put out fires on what exactly is if you're not familiar with anything, you know her and were North Carolina so if you discard and look up in the search engine Winston-Salem fire fertilizer fire is right near us right it's really within a thousand yards right across railroad tracks. Just to give you an idea we could we could blow up in a minute.
I would broadcasting from a broken back pay and yeah it's a blast on yeah citizens want a better topic to pick we pick this topic before the fire came about before we knew that we were going to build a record on our normal time and had to make other arrangements and it's just been a very adventurous week and so the topic for this week Wheatley picked last week talk about and it comes from one to begin with what you typically hear it being said, which is not correct you, you typically hear something called a wild goose chase. I don't know where you graph if that meant something different to you but when I grew at that man. It was a phenomenal waste of time. Usually I went on this big wild goose chase to try to find something or it was a lot of steps along the way to achieve something that should've been so easy to achieve. That's typically how that terms by news is that now you guys in the learning it is you were growing up getting like well I did scale for the lobby might smack grew up exactly the same way, but the difference is that was when we were chasing the wild gate goose which probably is a problem, but tonight were looking at the wild goose chasing us know actually chasing loggers. I'm looking at being chased by log as I was running okay what were going talk about tonight. The knowledge and just said that I today is most people usually do. Going back Robbie did you say something not okay going back is probably 5 to 6 years ago and Jim heard it from the source and I think a couple others have is John Eldridge talked about the Celtic people and I read more about this last week of the British Isles. Primarily is what was from and I know you hear the term Celtic but it's actually supposed to be Celtic at the Celtic people didn't refer to the Holy Spirit as a.they didn't use that as the symbol right and when we think about the common church now and we think about the whole experience, often represented by Dove, which makes a lot of sense because the dove is about peace and comfort us in a comforting types of aspects. The Holy Spirit brings right what the Celtic people realized insertion of wild adventure straight to the Holy Spirit and so they used a wild goose and and when you were following the adventure with the Holy Spirit. They call it chasing the wild goose. I'm on adventure with a wild goose and so united in a later became like anything else, the enemy takes what is meant for good and is a really cool thing and twisted and turns it makes something a lot less right to it if if it doesn't make it evil. At least makes it a waste of time. Right which is what is done with historian Seth this week were going to be playing some clips that go along with what we want talk about in each year and stories of our wild goose chases or in Jim's case being chased by the Legg Mason that can happen as well and saw go ahead and and and start first clip from a movie called planes, trains and automobiles.
It probably wasn't one of my favorite movies I liked it that I'd probably watch it once you know and for whatever reason when I thought of this topic, I thought of this one because I did remember that they had to get all these different ways to get home and buses, planes, trains and automobiles literally united try to get to home.
They were trying to get back to Chicago I believe it was in so you have Steve Martin is one of the characters and then that John Candy and in this clip what you hear is arriving at their destination.
Chicago the right rate is split.
After this long adventure and you get to hear them saying goodbye, and then Steve Martin thinks about some of the things that John Candy's character in said about his John's life and wondered okay is he really got someplace together so the second part you and here's him coming back to the train station following the Holy Spirit in some degree to come back to the train station and confront John's character in the last part is he taking home to be with his family in Surrealism that back and talk about you getting home I really appreciate next time. The first class I am sorry if I caused any trouble, you got me all the little late face is the family name. You okay and you you know that your I have reason and watching a movie or watch this week just in anticipation of this notice talking about and well some degree first and so in this you can hear Steve Martin is really frustrated. The whole trip Yandel, which is John Candy's character is kinda going with the punches most part in going along the way at the end there, both changed right in and they go on an adventure and they both end up at home right at the at Steve's home in this and so they'll get someplace to go for Thanksgiving a place to be home with some family in onset, his family, but they're bringing them into it and I started thinking about this that that's what the Holy Spirit as he brings this a couple different places, but it's always a version home and I could be home with the father could be home with in healing and restoration. There's lots of places at one pack is a talk to this today, but my quick story, then we get to Danny's clip is Holy Spirit adventure years ago now to remember what year was that the we had a big split in the ministry in overdoing the radio show and is big split and it was not a it was very painful, painful split fairway involved in the face of the decision do we continue to do the radio show, not because at that point we are in debt to the radio station quite a bit of money if you're not familiar with how Christian radio works.
You you pay for time on the air and helps you get donations back to cover it and so that's how a lot of work to get appetizers with those types of things and sewer ran into the realization pretty good but we made a commitment that we were going to go till the end of May and so Robbie Nye, who was what was left at the time much said were working on that working honor that thing you know agreement honor to the Anime and what happened for March is February actually February till end of May offer that was going to the radio station had a bit of money in the bank for the next month guy just continue to provide as we took a step of faith and said I don't know how this is going to turn out what it is that doing for me as it brought me to home break some home with you guys this is my home.
This is now my community. This is this is what I look forward to every week.
And damn, I just talk right. We do not have the time to do clip probably available so good as it's pretty good, but to so for me it was a bringing of home and set adventures in such a cool adventure continues to grow. Anyway, go ahead and release. Get your clip and insert him again set that up clip from Evan Almighty and his interchange between Evan and his wife. She's pretty much question in his sanity. At this point and so she got a confront symbol what's going on with his long hair and all of his interesting stuff and so this is the glue dry weather will continue until September 22 day and if the ark is finished by Van. You will be going to happen. September 22 midday chicken with the excuses. Please talk anything unleavened in the back next to the frankincense and myrrh. We have been for centuries, Peter, what is happening to you. Look at you want something in me. Building an ark. God appeared to me and told me to build said there was going to be a flood, and that I should be prepared never shaved my beard comes right back out my hair every day.
This road got sent me the rope thought it would be funny.
I actually think it's really comfortable time.
Well, you know everything to come here. Maybe too much pressure on you know this is got to stop. Please. You're scaring me.
Their father back and I need my husband back when you follow the wild goose not being chased by the Holy Spirit related to being intercepted.
I can remember a time when I think I had gotten into the wild heart Stefan so my life was just a swirl in an felt like God was still me get some men together we had done a day camp at this retreat center near the house and I rode by there every day and I just kept hearing you must. Get some men together and I can see a campfire as so we begin put this thing together and the resistance if he will will hi got do it how you pay for that I had no idea was following this idea and so we scheduled a date and we were going to have a night session and a meal and then the next day, displacing that weekend. They a front was coming to Tennessee spotted tornadoes hold on yards where the whip canceling the will to come back to pickup.
That is, I want to know what happened after that storm and went to get a masking tourney.org register for the coming of March 31 to April 3 times last March 31 masking tourney that already. We'd love to see their ventures was taken on starting a camping continue. One of my favorite things about boot camp. The favorite thing about campus every time I go, as anyone that has God knows, generally speaking, it's nothing we expect real counter with God.
He knew what I needed.
I knew what I wanted the same registered masculine journey.org what has weekend meant to me that's a really testing articulate, it's so deep inside me. It's ingrained in every part of understanding woundedness. That's where God really caught me at my first and also helping me step in the healing and restoration from those wounds is kinda cool. It's like an onion. The back layers and it's exciting is frustrating to go there with that, I enjoy the process in the way God registered masculine journey.org and welcome back to magical journey. We are talking about the great adventure were talking about stepping out into the great unknown. Like Steven Curtis Chapman to sing that song and that whole song is about being on an adventure with God is you go through the different verses that was part of the chorus, but it's all about being on adventure and how there's nothing better to have it. It doesn't require us to step out in the unknown and that's what were talking about today were talking about chasing the wild goose following the Holy Spirit on adventures and in when we left any year in mid adventure you tell us about something to do with setting up a campfire and something else. What was going on. Yeah Godhead fella got it impressed me to get some men to get around a campfire like an overnight camp thing and as we set this thing up.
We didn't do a real good job about registration, contacting people, but like okay here's already so there was a storm front coming through. Spotted tornadoes in Tennessee. This will be a great weekend for The day Bob: if you were going.
You got canceled. This thing you do this to my good friend George college or I called him and he now pretty close to Tom and he said go sit your tenant. I thought, well, it'll blow down to probably Forsyth County from Randolph. At that point in okay so I will set my tan misting rain and I go out in the woods. There's a crosswalk out at that place and I went out in the woods and to God what did you tale the median that you laid out in the wilderness. I will never forget what I heard it was you tell them I am cinch and I come out there I can afford a demon tooth and nail just ready to go.
We set up to camp and it was an amazing time a guy shows up with cooks a whole barbecue meal in charge of saving put a large donation in the in the in the coffers to help pay for the thing plus plus donate all the food guys showed up. We only had rain one time. We literally on the radar screen. The storefront literally parted around Randolph County. We didn't have any rain. We camped out we had a fire. We did the whole 9 yards and when we settled everything out and we had to pay for the place we had three sent left over. We donated that place we figured you wanted to sprinkle over and start honey whether Moses divided the store might have swirl in fire. We have like parting rain clouds/Americans.
That's pretty cool it's very close to shaking it was going out of business rattled around in the gimbal going to kick it over to you if you want to talk about really wanted to follow Damian there was a reason and appreciated with clip clueless out what that was, will still follow you sketching and I decided to amend my assessment of that. I think it's an excellent we were chasing those cases with wolves. That's the difference Jim story from Jim and Matt Willis. Just play that this is Rosie and the way up.
I forgot his name never to good movies never cry Wolf never quite well, although that was a good lady at that yet but basically this is a guy that's lived with adventure and another fellow that's on picture for the first time flying in a plane into heartland of Alaska, Blackstone will prospect in this is not in the ground anywhere in the face and boredom venture. And that was my life. I was in the boardroom sitting in front of the television my cursor I could use their it really was a time when we were pursuing God, my wife and I together. It was couple decades ago and we went to Henry black to be thing at the Cove and basically asking to hunt you hear from God.
How do you know when you heard from God and still get chills just hearing his voice Henry's all my brother. If you haven't if you were somebody I was walking with and walk alongside you and just show you he was talking about the walk with the Holy Spirit and he lived in adventure his entire life. He still around that ministry morbid.
Not too long after that my wife needed a major operation and surround our 30th anniversary so we decided to go to Alaska and that's was part of the inspiration for this clip but it really is. They become that level of adventure flying into Alaska and not sure we were going to crash. We went on a cruise that was the easy part on the cruise and little Presbyterian Church in Skagway.
Both my wife and I heard from God.
We were to come to Alaska.
Now we didn't never been out of the Carolinas is a South Carolina girl is a North Carolina girl and never got married.
She said we are not going more than you know. It's been revealed had 200 miles from her. Bob and got to the point where we said okay were going go on this adventure with God, not in a hurry will sell the house. Less allotment will pay a realtor stuck Simon yard at noon and at 7 PM that night were signing a contract on the house and then they wanted us out quick. We can maybe two weeks to go away or give away most of my job and had to Alaska and the only people that really said yeah that sounds like God with a five man that ended up on our board pretty much all family. Most of our friends. You said your nuts yet what you do when you get there. We don't know and leave it and that's for a while, say we were chased out and we were pursuing God and it was sort of when he got hold of us because we were chasing him.
It was quite an adventure and that that we thought we are gone forever and we had and we knew what were you doing what you got there and we were wrong on both of those counts so they yeah say I felt more chased chasing during that adventure was a wonderful adventure with God one that changed our lives permanently. Jim could question you are from uptown Charlotte where you I was East Charlotte Siewert and uptown girl I was on country club Drive and I am told that I debated your background, so running up even share holy spirit adventure deHavilland you'd like to share with us really that's what you know is thinking along the lines of there's lots of adventures that I was on by myself really since coming to Christ and then walk my walk my life and where Matt with this band of brothers and with my brothers and sisters in Christ and church and you know doing all that is and then my personal family and breaking up. Now everything is an incredible adventure with God that is one where I am personally met with the Holy Spirit for sure. I cannot praying you know, for healing and restoration all kinds of other things that are just know very personal, very daily type things that are no hey, I just I just want to be sustained for today. I know forget about tomorrow's other things in these put a bunch of things into my life of the last five, six, seven years that have just been no. In hindsight it looks like oh there's connection at the time their psycho where the heck am I going so it's been an adventure of just trying to get through life and just that contentedness that has come over me is absolutely the Holy Spirit is just not me you didn't really answer my question back in the after hours. I am asking to share a story about boot camp when you follow the Holy Spirit out to quiet time so you get a chance or think about that but you did give me great answer equals I didn't answer the question things ahead before hand was really the only place I've ever been on ventures of the Holy Spirit is been boot camp.
Other than this date. What I'm going through my life.
You can answer will come back for another answer will go around to good for. In the meantime, go to masculine journey.org to register for the upcoming boot camp March 31 through April 3 real quickly.
You think about some of the old stories of the Bible any the stories in the Bible there all called an adventure. We talked about in an inventor topic right. Abram is called an adventure becomes Abraham to solve the following evidence of Holy Spirit often led venture right in.
There's a lot of unknowns there's a lot of places we don't know where we can end up in a creature this week to pray to walk with the Holy Spirit. This is the Truth Network
