Invitation to Adventure

What an amazing journey lies ahead
If only you get out of bed, get ready
And take that first step, but though
You want to go, you’re slow to show
Initiative in beginning this venture
Of high calling…

You’re torn between the covering of night
And the bright daylight, between hovering
In your pretended security and moving on
Into the adventure of mysterious and ever
Challenging maturity, between your known
Routine and unknown scenes…

But the One who saved you from a certain
Death trap has tapped into your very heart
And is even now inspiring you to grab hold
Of His heart’s desire … but this requires
You to aspire, get up and move, work and
Perspire rather than remain in the mire
Of life as is!

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…  (Hebrews 12.1 ESV)

Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on towards the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.  (Philippians 3. 13-14 NRSV)

    1. Awesome! As I have told so many people already, if God can do this for me ~ and He has ~ then He can and will for anyone! Trust the Good Shepherd, who is also the Great Physician who heals and restores to health. Blessings be with you and upon you! Oh … and the Adventure will be absolutely amazing!
