When out walking in the wilderness it is amazing what you can come across, and if you spend a month in the wilderness it is amazing how your thoughts can change.
Take a month and go to the most remote place you know and leave your cell phone behind only take a ax, hatchet, a bow saw, fix blade knife, a 10’ x 20’ tarp, a 8’ x 10’ tarp, 200’ of cord, a one or two person tent, five to seven pair of socks and underwear, a towel and wash cloth, three or four different types of fire starter, a small pot to cook in and a 6’ cast iron frying pan, a life straw for clean safe drinking water, a stainless steel cup, a sleeping bag, two changes of clothing, needle and thread, a first aid kit, at least 34 high energy bars, 10 lbs. dried fruit, 10 lbs. dried vegetables, 10 lbs. dried meet, 1 lb. salt, peppermint oil, a head lamp, flash light, and a set of extra batteries for both, a compass and map.
{Yes this is more weight than you are going to pack on your back out in to the wilderness at one time, so make two trips.}
Take paper, and a couple pens and pencils, a journal book, and most important your Bible
Find a place close to running water out of the flood zone clean up the ground make a fire pit and set up your camp, once you have accomplished all that eat something than take your paper, journal book, pens and pencils and for 30 minutes and set down be still and be quiet, listen to the sounds around you, and ask the Lord your God to direct your path, ask Him over the next 30 days to speak to you and give you direction, Ask the Lord for wisdom and understanding, then open your bible to Psalms one and read, now read it aging slowly taking in each word and phrase, now read it aging stopping after each statement and think about your life how does your life compare to what is being said.
Wright down what the Lord shows you
Psalms 1:1
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
(A). Who do I listen to? Who do I get my direction from?
(B). Who do I spend my time with?
(C). Do I spend my time and take counsel from the wicked, from the sinners and scoffers. Those who mock, ridicule and put others down, those who are scorners of others
1. Who are these people in my life
and so on
Be honest with yourself and with God for He already knows but your eyes need to be open so you can see who you are truly listening to and following. Be honest with yourself.

As time went on He just sat, knoqing, knowing what no one else seemed to know.

But staring in to the red leave's He knew spring was on it's way, and that His life would go on as He reflected on the Love He had felt.

And that no mater how the lonely streets desended upon Him He would continue to shin, as He sat their He could be heard sining softly to Himself,   This little light of mine.

Hodgepenny's philosphy has always been take care of home first, only give to those who are truly in need, never, No never take anything that you have not earned. always spend as much time with the Father as you can, for His love will guide and keep you through all things, and this will make your life better than great.
