“Geo WHAAAAAT?,” said the Krispy Kreme Doughnut worker at the drive thru…
“You know…Geo Caching…will you give us a hint as to where it is?”my husband calmly said.
Whatever are you talking about fromtheheartofj?
It’s a real world outdoor treasure hunting game. First players get coordinates for hidden treasures via the official website www.geocaching.com Then they try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS enabled devices or their smart phones. After they find one they sign a logbook, see what others have left behind and if they want, share their experiences online. There are over 1 1/2 million geocaches hidden world wide and over 5 million geocachers around the globe. Almost 4000 hidden in my zip code alone and I don’t live in any booming metropolis.
Well, I wasn’t about to crawl in the big green dumpster just to find a geocache so we didn’t find that one, but did find one hidden at Texas Roadhouse Steakhouse so the trip wasn’t a total waste. Honestly, it takes awhile for us to hear of things in Alabama, but this weird and wacky hobby will keep you laughing as it did the carload of folks I was with. It’s great fun for kids, teenagers, young adutls, middle agers, and grannies and grandpas. You just have to be young at heart!
So….what does geo-caching have to do with a devotional blog about the journey of the heart?
Well…We were created to be “seekers”. We were made to seek God…to grope for Him even though He is not far away.
Are you in touch with that seeking part of your heart? For it is a part of who you are.
I find that the desire to seek spills over into all parts of my life. To nurture that seeking in the many varied ways it presents itself is to nurture that part of our heart that is creative.
So yes, seek God and you will find Him. He stands knocking at the door.
And if you have nice weather this weekend…get out and do some geocaching…it’s weird, and wacky but best of all it’s free.
“He made from one the whole human race to dwell on the entire surface of the earth, and He fixed the ordered seasons and the boundaries of their regions, so that people might seek God, even perhaps grope for Him and find Him, even though indeed He is not far from any one of us.” Acts 17:26-27
