I woke up this morning without a care in the world. I looked around the RV thinking, ahhhh the simple life. Pack up and hit the road. Stop for a few days then head for the next destination. Peace, quiet, and comfort. COMFORT!! I had a fleeting thought of how nice it would be to live comfortably for the rest of our lives. Spending my time with Antoine and Scout away for the chaos of the world. How happy would I be engaging in my favorite activities ALL DAY, EVERYDAY: hiking, reading, writing, and eating my sister’s Heavenly Cashew Crunch. 😀 I thought, wouldn’t it be great if we could live in comfort for the rest of our lives???
Yeah, of course, but how would I fulfill my purpose? And we all know, comfort and growth are not synonymous. Growth requires us to move out of our comfort zone. There’s no denying these last 6 months have been quite difficult for me. And because they were difficult for me, they were probably difficult for Antoine too because he was with me every step of the way. The outcome of the production (I Came to Tell You About . . . THE GREAT REDEEMER) was a lot better than I imagined. Many people were blessed and God was glorified, which was the goal. It drained me. And while this little getaway is wonderful, my renewed strength and ability to keep moving forward comes from the Lord. He’s the ultimate refresher. The bible verse that comes to mind is: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)
I find comfort in knowing I can ALWAYS rely on the Lord for any and everything I need. Vacations and getaways are great. My connection with the Lord is priceless and irreplaceable.
Just blogging it out . . . Oh and Happy Wednesday!! 😀
