It has been amazing, the doors God has opened to me, since “I got off the road.” I still do a few speaking engagements a year and have a huge desire to do FOCAS (Fellowship of Christian Anglers) meetings at BFL tournaments and other events I attend.
It has been nice to get plugged into my local church; Temple Baptist. We have some great events like Nextfest & Live Nativity, just to name a few. You will find me helping with parking. Such a cool God led job; we get to greet everyone and set the tone. We also say good bye and let everyone know what a blessing they have been to us for attending!
I still realize I have been given an awesome platform to share the Good News because of my involvement in the outdoor industry. I still think Fishermen have the greatest blind faith of all. Think about how many casts we make in a day, into the water, never seeing the fish we are casting to, but we continue to cast in hope and expectation of one bite!
With Jesus we will see Him, we will touch Him, but we have to turn our lives over to Him and accept Him as Lord and Savior; remember it is by faith not works. The cool thing about this commitment, is unlike blind casting, you only have to cast once; because when Jesus catches us He never lets us go!
