Reality Check

Teacher’s Resource:
Bwana’s Guide:

“Reality Checks” are devotional outlines for outdoor preachers and teachers that have worked well on Creation Safaris, in line with our motto Escape to Reality.  These lessons should be thought out with additional Scriptures, explanations, illustrations, and personal testimonies to make them your own.  Above all, handle with prayer.
 – David F. Coppedge


The Lord is my Bwana; I shall not get lost.
He maketh me to lie down in green flower-strewn meadows;
He leadeth me beside sparkling alpine lakes;
He restoreth my soul.

He leadeth me upward on trails of righteousness for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through Death Valley,
I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me.
Thy canteen and walking stick, they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table of rainbow trout before me
In the presence of grizzly bears.
Thou anointest my head with sunscreen,
My Sierra Cup runneth over.

Surely grand scenery and good health shall follow me
All the miles of my hike,
And I will dwell in the tent of the Lord forever.

– David Coppedge
