A Grand Adventure 

Peter pan once said, “To live will be an awfully big adventure.” That’s exactly what I want.

While I LOVE adventure I don’t want to only go on adventures, I  want my life to be a big adventure. A life that is actually full of life.
I want to live in the moment and enjoy every bit of this wonderful life Jesus gave me and lately I’ve been feeling far from that. I find myself getting easily frustrated, complaining, and basically just getting caught up in the cares of the world that don’t even really matter. Sometimes it takes getting to these “ugly” places for me to see what it is I really desire from my life and fully living I would have to say is at the very top of the list. I’ve always said that being a follower of Jesus is such a wild adventure because you end up doing things you never even dreamed of. Maybe it’s because we truly lay our life down and He starts putting His desires in our hearts. I believe that the only way to fully live is to live a life sold out to Jesus and if I’m honest I haven’t been. I have been so caught up in the busyness of life that I’ve been choosing life’s demands over Him and friends I am TIRED.
So for now, my adventure is getting back to that intimate place with Jesus, back to the place where I focus on the things above instead of the cares of the world. I am so thankful that God is SO good and SO full of love that anytime we wander away no matter if it’s a week or a year He always welcomes us with open arms and invites us to live a grand adventure with Him.
