As day breaks, I meander my way through the carved paths few traveled along the mountainsides. Thousand of years ago, God arrived and planted trees to hold the hillside, and His flowers bloomed adding to the beauty of nature. A river bends through the swaying trees where barren life once existed on earth. Valleys burned from heaven’s thunder as God cleared the land to rebuild the forest. Life is so unrehearsed.
Life changes in an instant when God bestows gifts upon the unsuspecting. We start to live as God so ordered. Like a burning bush growing sprouts from the leftover ashes, we too do much the same by picking up the pieces of a life we never had and beginning again.
If we research the Bible, we quickly find Christ’s path was unrehearsed too. I cannot conceive the astonishment of being the chosen one, sent by God, to start a new religion in a new world. Jesus lived day to day on prayer and faith. Planned by His Father in heaven, few could have endured His journey. But Jesus saved us by teaching us to follow His unrehearsed way of life. The Sermon on the Mount clearly describes the Beatitudes He preached to the disciples (Book of Luke).
Today, we try to do our best to walk in the shadow of our Savior, living our lives in an unrehearsed manner. Two thousand years later, the sun still shines and the seasons’ surrender. Our tomorrows are impromptu, and no one can predict the future of God’s direction for us.
The world will shine as it wants, and our faith in His light will allow life to prosper once again for us. Staying in prayer is the only antidote to the spontaneous plans of God. Disappointments reign when the thunder ignites the mountains, but life goes on….unrehearsed.

Dana S. Bicks, a Severna Park, Maryland native, was born a left-handed dyslexic, and falsely labeled "retarded" as a young child. He struggled throughout his life with the disability until the age of sixty. Then one night, a miracle occurred. God, in His infinite grace and wisdom, awoke Dana and demanded him to be a writer of His messages to the world. Shortly after finding humor in God's suggestion, Dana picked up a pen. He began writing, right-handed nonetheless, Christian struggles of life, and prayers ascribed to him by the Lord.
In June 2017, Dana and his wife created this inspirational blog which currently maintains 19.6 million readers in twenty-nine countries across the world. It has won multi-awards including a Top 30 Inspirational Blog Websites to follow in 2018 as awarded by Feedspot.com in May 2018. His blog is followed by numerous celebrities, ministries, authors, and people in all walks of life. January 2019, he started his own YouTube Channel called, Blogging 2 Believers, which discusses his most blog topics. Only God's hand could allow an unexperienced writer to grow a fellowship of such success in less than a year!
Dana Bicks shares these stories in his beautiful books, blogs, and social media platforms. His new inspirational book series, "There In God's Grace", Book One, won a silver medal by the prestigious Feathered Quill Book Awards. Dana’s creative, talented writing can only be heaven sent!
