What if we decided that our lives really did have meaning and purpose? What if it is true that if we are willing to see the good and bad of our lives as an adventure that “the love of God would take us far beyond our wildest dreams?” And what if this is a great journey for our human hearts? Do we want to miss it? We can miss it if we just take “another time around the circle” or let the thoughts inside our heads crowd out what God wants us to do this day.
It is important to realize that we do have some choices to make. We do not always get to decide what circumstances happen to us, but we always get to decide how we want to think about those circumstances. And it is how we think that will determine how we feel.
Do we decide to listen to God when we are making our plans? Do we decide to listen to God when He provides opportunities to be used by Him in practical ways in other people’s lives? Do we consider it all a Great Adventure?
