” You will never been in control of your life circumstances, but you can relax and trust in My control. Instead of striving for a predictable, safe lifestyle, seek to know Me in greater depth and breadth. I long to make your life a glorious adventure, but you must stop clinging to old ways. I am always doing something new within My beloved ones. Be on the lookout for all that I have prepared for you.” – Sarah Young, Jesus Calling
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
Coming from a gal that deals with anxiety over the unknown, I have a hard time giving up control to God. These quotes remind me that if I want to experience the beauty of an adventurous life, then I need to trust. Trust that God has me in the palm of my hand. Trust that He is a faithful God who will never abandon me. Trust that He loves me, and He has a perfect plan for my life.
Adventure is out there. Trust in God’s control. See ya this summer! -Heather
