Meet the Adventure!
God has a plan not known by any man!
More significantly, God has a plan for the entire Body of Christ and world as a whole. Sometimes unpleasant circumstances take place before God’s purposes reach fruition. During such campaigns the saints can sometimes endure great struggles and persecution; even death for the greater good. For example, as groups of Christians were tortured and bravely faced death for their faith in the various Gladiatorial games of the Roman Empire, thousands of Romans citizens and slaves experienced a profound calling towards Christ and salvation. Thus, for the loss of a few, thousands received eternal-life. God moves in mysterious and even strange ways. Humans seldom fully comprehend God’s true purposes or methods.
We are not guaranteed a pleasant physical existence here on earth; rather, we are guaranteed a glorious eternal-life devoid of shame or suffering. This life is merely a journey.
So, we must climb the proverbial mountain of life because we are called by God to climb. It’s an act of faith as we are called to live for Christ. Should we slip, fall or even bust our butts falling down in the muck and mire of this life’s journey, we must get back up and continue to climb. It’s okay if we must take a few moments to recover and then get back on our feet and continue climbing once again, as long as we keep climbing. The only way we fail is if we cease to honestly try.
To keep climbing (truly trying) is an exercise in great faith. Simply telling everyone you will climb may encourage you, but it is not an act of great faith.
Remember, God has a plan for your life no matter what it may look like at this time.
Whether happy with your current place in life or not, keep climbing, keep the faith and never stop or cease trying.
Life is like a mountain excursion. When you are determined to reach the top you generally reach the top. If you stumble and fall hard you may need a few moments to regain your strength and courage but you get back on your feet and continue your trek towards the top. Never quit, never accept defeat, never surrender and by all means at your disposal always look at the climb as an adventure.
Adventures are fun, challenging and even worthwhile.
Woe is me struggles are seldom seen as fun, challenging or worthwhile.
Troubles are daunting something to get past and often seen unfulfilling.
See your walk with God as the adventure of “your” lifetime that it is.
Life is a journey and an adventure.
How many lost souls can you lead up that same mountain as you climb?
How many lost lives will you be partially responsible for getting through the pearly-gates?
Therein lays the greatest adventure of anyone’s lifetime.
Saving the souls of the lost! Wow!
Only through Christ can we lead someone to salvation, AND that is why we are here. We partner with the Almighty when we lead someone to the foot of Jesus’ cross.
Trust the Lord always!
He knows what HE is doing; really!
He knows which mountains are the right mountains for you.
Meet the Adventure with all you are worth and smile while doing it!
From a fellow adventurer, praise the Lord!
