Chugach Mountain Range, Alaska - "I Am What I Am""


For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance:  that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve.  Atter that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.  Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.  For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.  But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect.  No, I worked harder than all of them--yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.

Chugach Mountains, Alaska - "Seek Me with All Your Heart"

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to proper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.   You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:11-13

"I am the Good Shepherd" - North to Alaska


I am the good shepherd.  The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.  The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep.  So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away.  the wolf attacks the flock ad scatters it.  The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.

I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me -- just as the Father knows me and I know the Father -- and I lay down my life for the sheep.

John 10:11-15

Turnagain Arm Shoreline - "The Salt of the Earth"


"You are the salt of the earth.  But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?  It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.  You are the light of the world.  A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Matthew 5:13-16

Chugach Mountains - The Stones will Cry Out


When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen.

"Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!"

"Peace in  heaven and glory in the highest!"

Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!"

"I tell you,"   he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."  

Luke 19:37-40  NIV

In Christ Alone My Hope Is Found

"In Christ Alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
Here in the love of Christ I stand."

Emerald Green Waters

Alaska rivers are like mirrors reflecting all the beauty of the sky above and the majestic mountain peaks.  Emerald rivers flow for miles.  Is this not paradise?

"You, Lord, in the beginning 
laid the foundation of the earth.
And the heavens are the 
work of Your hands;
They will perish, but You remain;
And they will all grow old 
like a garment;
Like a cloak You will fold them up;
And they will be changed.
But You are the same
And Your years will not fail."

Hebrews 1:10-12

The Wellspring of Life

Do not let them depart from your sight;
Keep them in the midst of your heart.
For they are life to those who find them
And health to all their body.
Watch over your heart with all diligence,
For from it flow the springs of life.

Proverbs 4:21-23

Heart of my Own Heart


But now your kingdom shall not endure.  The Lord has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the Lord has appointed him ruler over His people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you.

1 Samuel 13:14
