Greetings and Salutations! May the peace of the Creator be upon you and yours this day.

Welcome to the Wild Goose Chase! My name is Joshua S. Hopping and I’m a passionate follower of the Creator King with a missional heart and a love of people. Many years ago as I walked the path of life, the Creator of Heaven and Earth told me to follow the Wild Goose (aka the Holy Spirit). In the mist of the journey that followed, I started this website to record the things He taught me along the way.

As on any journey, there are things planned and unplanned.  The articles and writings on this site reflect this truth – as there are planned items (Book Reviews, Theological Thoughts, Backpacking Adventures, etc) and there are unplanned items (Home Repairs, Current Events, etc).

Lord willing you will enjoy reading these posts as much as I enjoy writing them.  You can also check out my Facebook page where I’m a bit more active. Blessings.

I am no longer my own, but yours.
Use me as you choose;
rank me alongside whoever You choose;
put me to doing, put me to suffering;
let me be employed for You, or laid aside for You;
raised up for You, or brought down low for You;
let me be full, let me be empty;
let me have all things, let me have nothing;
with my whole heart I freely choose to yield
all things to Your ordering and approval.
