Sometimes its the weirdest routes that takes you to the coolest places.
Have you ever taken a detour only to discover things you’d never found if you hadn’t? I have! This is something the Lord’s been showing me so much lately. There are times I may not understand what He is doing, but I know that if I obey and follow His directions, I will indeed stumble into things that will benefit me immensely.
What about you? Are you ready to embark on a journey you may not have chosen for yourself? Something that’s a little bit scary but a whole lot exciting? Are you ready to trust someone besides you, knowing He alone knows the plans He has for you and is more excited than you are about them?
Not knowing everything, leaves God in control instead of you. Trust Him! He really does know what’s best for you and He has astoundingly awesome things ready for you to grab hold of.
To trust God from the bottom of your heart, you must first let go of your own plans. Don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track. Proverbs 3:5-6 Message
Walt and I have always enjoyed taking a road trip. The best ones seem to be when we just decide to go, no plans, just a tankful of gas and a sense of adventure. To discover a nearby town, a bit of history or just to enjoy the scenery we haven’t yet seen. I believe God created us with the curiosity to discover new things.
Life with God is never dull unless you’ve been going the same direction merely by way of convenience or comfort. Life with Him was made to be uniquely different from any other life. To go where He sends us, to find new paths and opportunities to share His love with others. To not be comfortable with the same friends and familiar surroundings that we lose the desire to find the new He has for us.
Ready or Not,
