I Think I'll Just Go with God
Hebrews 13: 13-14
As I look back through my life, there are several important dates that I will always remember. For example, just to name a few, I will always remember November 27, 1966 as the day that I was brought into this world. I will always remember October 29, 1994; the day that my wife, Kim, and I were united in marriage. I will always remember November 9, 1998 as the day that I found out that I was going to be a "Dad!"

As they hit the third day of their trip, their little eight-year old daughter, weary from the traveling, asked her father a very interesting question. She asked, "Daddy, when we get where we're going, will we be there?"
When I read that, I thought, that is exactly the question many Christians have asked. You see, though many have been saved, not many have become submitted to the plan of God ...
