The Great Adventure 2009: Begins

Along the road of life we will set out on adventures. Adventures to find our self, to discover the world, explore the unknown, and any other reasons to get away. I set out on the adventure of faith. To follow the Lord and to walk by faith instead of by sight. As I look out my window I quickly see the distance fading out behind me. Wondering what the future holds, I am unsure but I look back on what brought me here to this very point. And that is to trust the Lord, to walk by faith, and to live for the moment. I am embark on a journey many will
dream but few will travel.

I begin my journey with a hungry heart. A desire to grow in faith and to build a foundation on Christ. A desire to live each day and to fully trust in the Lord. To not just go through the motions but to experience life, to embrace the lows, absorb the highs, and to truly experience the love of Christ.

I offer this time to the Lord. The adventure is in his hands. Over the next three months the Lord will be in the driver seat directing the adventure, the path, and the plans. What seemed like another one of my crazy ideas was indeed sparked by the Lord himself. So come along as I share my adventures, struggles, and joys.

However on this adventure I leave my thoughts, desires, and my path behind because the Lord has said:

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." - Isaiah 55:8-9

I leave you with this final thought because if there is one thing I have learned, it is that my path takes me through many valleys, so: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." - Proverbs 3:5-6
