In the summer of 2007 I told my wife that I was tired of status quo… that I was tried of doing things the way I had always done them… I told God that I was ready for an adventure.
I quickly learned that God will take you up on statements like that…ready or not! Do I regret saying it? There are days that I do, and days that I want to yell, “Bring it on!”
Nearly two years later I feel like the adventure has been non-stop! One BIG cross-country move followed by another in-state move pending… Bad real estate market, bad economy, family loss, so much uncertainty… Wow… I don’t know if anyone else feels as overwhelmed as I do sometimes, but DANG, it feels so CRAZY all of the time!
The deeper I get into this adventure the more I realize that I must lean on God like never before… and even just admitting that is difficult… the truth is that I would probably spin out of control without him.
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4 ESV
I look to this year with equal parts fear and excitement… fear of what I don’t know, and excitement about what God can do with it. Hang on… we’re on an adventure.
Where is your adventure taking you?
