Don’t we all love an adventure?
My adventure started a few years ago, July, 2013 to be exact. I will not go into all the details here, you can read about it here.
This adventure though is not like adventures I loved to go on as a child. I remember in the summer when school was out, my adventures were new ever day. I loved to go out into the garden my parents had and grab the vegetables they were not going to pick or had threw down. I would bring them to the house and my restaurant would open on the back porch. I was the cook, the waitress, the owner. I was everything. But guess what? It wasn’t stressful. It as an adventure.
The next day I might decide I was going to be a teacher. I would go in my bedroom, get all my stuffed animals and place them in the classroom. I remember tearing pages out of the Sears catalog and pretended that was their math work.
Adventures when I was younger were so much fun. I was always happy. I was always excited about different endings. Of course though, I may have had something to do with the endings. But they were great adventures.
It seemed as I got older, adventures were not as fun sometimes or I could not plan the ending. Oh, how I didn’t like this since I’m one who likes to be in control and have everything in order.
But I can promise you, the adventure I began in July, 2013 as been an adventure. It has been a new one every day, every week, every month, and every year. For the longest time, I thought I had to decide what I was going to do. I had to do something. I had to be a part of something.
But in the last few months, God has really been speaking to me. This was an adventure He has sent me on. He has sent me on it to grow in Him, to learn more about Him, to spend more time with Him, and He knows the ending not me.
As I said before I love control and order, but I have learned, God is in control of the adventure I am on now. I’m trying to listen and be more obedient. I’m trying to give up on the control.
I pray the adventure is going right alone with His plans. I pray I am listening to Him.
I have signed up to go to the She Speaks conference this summer in Charlotte. I have not been able to go before because of finances but mostly because it wasn’t time in God’s adventure for me. This year everything is falling into place, so I know God is in charge of this adventure.
I know now, that last year, I still had some things to take care of. God still had some plans He needed me to finish first. I was so sad, but now I’m so happy. I see now it wasn’t time.
In closing, I pray that I continue to listen to God and not let my fears and anxieties take over. I’m reading and learning so much more about God’s Word. I had to learn more before I could move forward in my adventure.
Thank you God for walking beside me in this adventure.
And the adventure continues until ……..
This is my first time joining Suzie Eller in the #livefreeThursday in a very long time. I”m so excited and I believe this is part of my adventure.
