Our Greatest Adventure Awaits

Posted in Global Missions

If we are honest, I think the majority of us would say we are bored. Not that we don’t have enough to do because we are busy people, but maybe discontent. Maybe it’s the question “what am I doing with my life?” Or, “there has to be more?” 

Deep in each of us is the desire to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. Something worthy to give our lives away to. We start searching for it when we are young and dream of our lives making an impact, or living the most fulfilled life. Then, all of a sudden, we are living day to day and feel trapped in the world we have chosen for ourselves. 

The great news is that it’s never too late. When Jesus said “I’ve come to give you life and life to the fullest” that means we are a decision or two away from living the adventure of our lives. 

As I begin this series of blogs, I pray that we grasp ahold of the amazing adventure that awaits us. Serving God, following God, loving God is full of great adventures that is right before us. Not only that, but also in full transparency, it’s the hardest thing we will ever do. The adventure God invites us to requires sacrifice, being uncomfortable, and doing things we may have never done before. Jesus never ever promised us that following Him was comfortable. It’s not, and never will be. 

When I travel to another country or God puts someone in my path here in Oklahoma, I try to remind myself that I have been given the greatest news ever given to humankind. I can give them hope, I can give that person joy, because I have the opportunity to spread God’s love here and around the world. Our ride is waiting. The offer is there. God’s invitation is extended, our adventure begins.

A Humbled Heart

The past year my wife Vanda and I have had the blessing to attend and speak at churches across our great state. Although the churches varied in size, location, rural, or city there was one theme that we would hear at each church over and over again before we headed back home to Arcadia.

Disruption

I don’t know a person that enjoys being disrupted. I’m not talking about when we speak (although that is annoying), I’m talking about our daily lives, our routines, what we do day to day. We work really hard at keeping our lives as normal as possible and that is a huge trap Satan has placed in front of us that we often fall into. However, I think I can make a case as followers of Christ who work hard at keeping their lives normal as possible are the most miserable people on the planet.

A Student like Addi

They call her Addi for short, probably only about 5.1, she can’t weigh more than 100 pounds. Always smiling, humble spirit, she loves people around her well, and she brightens the room because Jesus shines so brightly out of her. She has grown up in the community of Stroud where she will graduate high school next year. Addi would intimidate no-one however there is a warrior deep down inside of her that is starting to emerge.
