Hiking the Trail to Table Rock

Focusing on the Next Step

A few weeks back, I wrote about Jeremiah 29:11. I was reminded of that verse again as we made our way up the trail to Table Rock.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

I believe that God does have plans for us. He doesn’t force us to follow them, but the plans are there nonetheless.

The Importance of Community

Reaching the Top

As we made our way to the top of the trail, the trees began to clear. Finally, we reached the point that gives Table Rock its name. We had hiked over three miles to an elevation of over 3,000 feet. As we looked out over the breathtaking views before us, we certainly felt a sense of accomplishment.

The Journey Back

We made our way back down the mountain. I had taken the lead at this point. I was beginning to feel pretty confident in my hiking abilities. So I started going faster. Hiking down is easier anyways, right?
