Are you adventurous?
I would not fall into either category, because I prefer a well planned, routine lifestyle. I work best surrounded with comfort and peace. However, lately, the Lord has been changing my circumstances that definitely stretch me. This past week, I took the week off to do some camping which is stepping out of routine.
Also, I changed jobs recently. I taught pre-school for several years at a tiny mountain school house in our small town. Due to free public transitional kindergarden, I was forced to find alternative work. Fortunately, I was hired at a nearby Christian Conference Center as a Facilities Administrative Assistance.
As I mentioned earlier, I enjoy routine and this was a huge change for me. However, I must admit, I love my new position! It is refreshing change moving to an office environment, meeting new people and working on challenging projects. It has helped me grow tremendously as an individual.
Along the way, I am learning to be flexible and go with the flow. The Bible says:
Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevail
And even though I don’t always understand His plans, they always turn out better than mine.
Another verse, I cling to is:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.”
How about you? Has the Lord lead you on a new adventure? I would love to hear about it! Feel free to share with us.
