Enchanted Rock

I can't believe its already Thanksgiving break! This semester has flown by! With the conclusion of the semester drawing near, Christians on campus group had an outing at Enchanted Rock last weekend. I really enjoyed attending it and have continued to enjoy the topics we covered throughout this week. 

The day's topic was Noah's Family as age-turners and we heard some speaking concerning God's purpose, man's fall, and the way of salvation in the morning. Then we got into the life and work that changed the age in the afternoon in small groups kind of like we do in our semester Bible studies. And lastly, we heard some speaking on practical aspects of what it means to be an age-turner.

 All of the sharing and readings were so enjoyable. But something that I've been especially enjoying is one of the Godly ways of the Fathers that we have inherited. This was what we learned from Adam, which was Adam's way of salvation.

Because Adam fell, God covered him with the sheepskin and gave him a way of salvation.  This really touched me because even though man's fall is generally seen as a negative event, it also allows us to taste the sweetness of God's salvation. For the first time I understood the verse, "Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the well's of salvation" (Isaiah 12:3).


  1. Awesome post, Danielle! It's so encouraging that just as God Himself is eternal, His purpose is also eternal. Despite man's fall, God never give up. This is our true thanksgiving, right, Danielle? Thank You, Lord, You didn't give up on us. On the contrary, You have provided such a wonderful way of salvation. We can be saved from judgment, from death waters!

    Stay in the enjoyment, Danielle! Thank you for posting.

  2. Right! That IS so sweet to know that God's purpose is eternal and that He will never give up on us!
