A few years ago I was riding on the back of a train exactly like this one. It was winter time and I was rolling through Utah and I was what we call “gearless and fearless” meaning I did not have the proper camping gear, no sleeping bag or blanket, no pack, just the clothes on my back. It was well below freezing and my feet felt like they were blocks of ice and I was truly freezing my friends. The train slowed as we were rolling through some town and I prayed to God “please stop this train so I can get some gear”. That train stopped literally 3-5 minutes after that. I got off and I was directly behind a building that said “Klymit” and I could see it was a big store that manufactured and sold backpacking gear. The store was closed so I looked into the dumpster behind the store and my eyes could not believe what I saw. Inside that dumpster were many high quality sleeping bags and sleeping pads, MANY to choose from. They must have been defects or returns. Down sleeping bags, the good ones. It makes me tear up because I know the Lord provided for me that day, and I have many more stories similar to this. I left there with 2 sleeping bags and 2 sleeping pads, because I knew I would find another homeless person to give to… I’m sharing this because I know it’s true that if you believe what God says in Mathew Chapter 6 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value then they? Yes it is good to be prepared and to stock up on supplies, but always remember that God will provide, his words are true, you just have to believe it.
