…”He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being.” Acts 17:26-28
“Adventure is an attitude, not a behavior. A life of adventure is ours for the taking. Stop asking if only and why me and start asking what if and why not. Capture each moment and savor the present – good or bad. Let go of your regrets and embrace your dreams. Celebrate life as it is!
God wants us to live fully…and well. Jesus said ‘I have come so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.’ (John 10:10) We have no idea what lies ahead or how God will open doors of potentiality when we consciously choose to get out of the ruts we’re in land start moving down new paths about which we can be excited – even passionate.
It’s daring to be curious about the unknown, to dream big dreams, to live outside prescribed boxes, to take risks, and above all, daring to investigate the way we live until we discover the deepest treasured purpose of why we are here. Life, for the most part, is what we make it. We have been given a responsibility to live it fully, joyfully, completely, and richly, in whatever span of time God grants on this earth. Jesus Christ is the master of Adventure!”

I hope your holiday weekend has been filled with the best kind of adventure. We’ve been in Mexico working with a medical clinic. Can’t wait to share all that God has done!
“The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy!” Psalm 126:3
