Life's Journey

I am a firm believer of "everything happens for a reason", as I have blogged in the past about our trials and tribulations we have been going through and are currently going through. Just when things seems to go our way...we hit another bump in the road.

I am finally beginning to make peace with what God may or may not have planned for us. Will we stay in our house much longer? Will my Husband find another job? Will we ever have baby #4? Will we get over our financial hump? Should I make the move and work outside the home? Only God knows!!

Lemonade Makin Mama posted about how her life is on a journey of uncharted territory. That is exactly how I am feeling.....I have no idea where this journey God has us on is going but I am along for the ride and I am excited about it. Here is a quote by Francis Chan, that Lemonade Makin Mama has posted on her blog, I thought it was so fitting, I just had to share.

"Lukewarm people do not live by faith; their lives are structured so they never have to. They don't have to trust God if something unexpected happens- they have their savings account. They don't need God to help them- they have their retirement plan in place. They don't genuinely seek out what life God would have them live- they have life figured and mapped out. They don't depend on God on a daily basis- their refrigerators are full and, for the most part, they are in good health. The truth is, their lives wouldn't look much different if they suddenly stopped believing in God."

Great post.

I have to agree that living life "lukewarm" just isn't all that fun.

There are so many wonderful things on this Earth for us to explore, learn, experience...sometimes it requires making choices and taking a gamble. Sometimes that gamble pays off and other times it doesn't, but regardless of the outcome...it's about truly living life!
