an adventurous spirit.

i have kept a small piece of paper in my Bible for over a year now. i read over the words weekly and been increasingly encouraged by them:

Many people are so preoccupied with future plans and decisions that they fail to see choices they need to makes TODAY. Without any conscious awareness, they make their habitual responses. People who live this way find a dullness creeping into their lives. They sleepwalk through their days, following well-worn paths of routine.

I, the Creator of the universe, am the most creative Being imaginable. I will not leave you circling in deeply rutting paths. Instead, I will lead you along fresh trails of adventure, revealing to you things you did not know. Stay in communication with Me; follow my guiding Presence.

take away what you may. but be encouraged by God's seemingly adventurous spirit.
