Have you ever searched for a dead body?

I admit the question is a bit odd.  “Have you ever searched for a dead body?”  

When I was a  young man, I was at a lake when everyone started running around on the shore  crazy-like.  It turns out they had a reason to.  A boy was missing and suspected of having drowned somewhere close to shore. 

They were putting a search line together to try and find the boy.  Everyone stretched out close together in a line and entered the water.  The leader was hoping we would stumble upon the boy soon enough to save him. 

I didn’t know the boy and I really had conflicting emotions.  I hoped with all my heart someone would find the boy, but I also hoped with all my heart I wouldn’t be the one to stumble on the body. 

I think we as Christians often find ourselves obligated to do the right thing, but not really enjoying the situation we find ourselves in.  It all boils down to obedience…

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
