God is so big! The Zulu word for God is Unkulunkulu which literally means Big, Big.
Looking back on over a year on the road, God has done so many amazing things through us and in us. We would not trade the last year for anything. The people we've met, the way our family has grown in our faith, and so many other things are just indescribable.
It's so much bigger than us. God's plan is one tremendous love story, but so many times we get it all focused on us. But truly, it's ALL ABOUT HIM! He is the beginning and the end. He is outside of time and space, in fact, He created time and space! He is perfect in every way and His ways are so much higher than ours.
We are so blessed to be walking (and driving) the way He has made for us. We are overwhelmed with joy to be part of His plan... but the key, is it's His plan, not ours. I (Josh) have tried so many times to make my own plans that I even think honor Him, but it wasn't FROM Him. Things done in our own power and not at His word, are just works of the flesh.
But... when we take time to get to know Him, the Creator of ALL things... the one who started billions of galaxies from nothing, we find that it's really not about us. His purpose and plan is perfect. If we will lay aside EVERYTHING to follow Him, to wait on Him, to walk in the Spirit, we will be filled with abundant life and the gift of God, the Holy Spirit.
As the Holy Spirit directs us in the next year and beyond, please pray with us that we walk with Him always... not trying to things out of our own strength, but His. There is no God, but Him. He is not just big, He's bigger than big. He is beyond what we think or imagine. He is what we need. All things are from Him, through Him and for Him! Amen!
Hi! We're the Hoeckles.
We're a family of six living full-time in a skoolie (aka a school bus converted into an RV). We are inviting you to join us as we live life to its fullest and empower others to do the same. Welcome to the family!
