Defining Adventure

How do you define adventure?

What does it mean to you to live an adventuresome life? (Luci Swindoll)

Adventure:
Out of the ordinary
Unusual
Unexpected
Untraditional

Quite a lot of UNs.  (Let’s think proactively.  Yes!)

An adventure is active, daring, even thrilling.  But could it also be quieting?

For me – to live the adventuresome life means taking steps toward a life less ordinary.  It means not always making the expected or comfortable choice.  I want a bank filled with memories rather than money.  I want new experiences in new places.  I want to risk more than I play it safe.  I want to live for something bigger than myself.

Dictionary.com has this opinion of our word – “ADVENTURE: An unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity.”

Now consider this quote by Erwin McManus: “The center of God’s will is not a safe place, but the most dangerous place in the world. God fears nothing and no one. God moves with intentionality and power. To live outside God’s will puts us in danger, but to live in His will makes us dangerous.”

What do you think?  Is following your calling an adventure?  Have you embraced adventure?
