When the desert really is a desert.
Personal Journal Entry: August 23, 2006
As I think about where my road may be leading me I am reminded speicifcally of Abram. The Lord called him to leave it all and come into the desert. I examine my own comfortable life here in Texas and wonder if I am willing to leave. Will I really pack it up as eagerly as I make it seem? I think I’m ready. Good-bye Ur, hello desert.
The desert is hot and flat and I have no idea where we are going. But I’m excited because my story isn’t the same as Abram’s. We are not going to Canaan – but God’s promise to finish His work in his people applies to me just as much as it did to Abram!
Ginger, don’t miss out on the journey by being so caught up on the final destination. This may be your only time on a camel – so open up your eyes to to the story! Allow His Story to saturate your’s and you will end up in the most exciting place possible… His Will!
On September 5th I applied for a job that would eventually take me to the desert of Arizona. Stepping into new adventures requires the courage to leave some old ones behind. How tightly are you clinging to Ur? (I’m asking myself the same question all over again!)
