Don't stumble! Look up!


The Ouachita Trail stretches for more than 200 miles from eastern Oklahoma to central Arkansas. There are many scenic vistas to enjoy along the trail. However, many sections of the trail are showered with large rock. One has to be cautious of the rock to keep from tripping or stumbling while at the same time enjoying the vistas and remaining on the marked trail. In our journey through life, Satan desires to trip us or cause us to stumble by taking our eyes off our Savior and guide, Jesus! Our own self ambition and a number of other things could cause us to stumble. May we be reminded of what the writer of Hebrews shares about running our race of faith and keeping our eyes fixed on Him! "...let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, LOOKING UNTO JESUS, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God" Hebrews 12:1-2 NKJV
