Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Lo, I am filled with wan•der•lust– this intense desire to travel, see and enjoy the world created for us. I was thinking last night that time is so fragile and after some close reflection, I’ve realized that there is so much more to see and experience. Think about it, how have you experienced the days given you? Being a Christian is not supposed to be boring or void of adventure, in all actuality- it should be the complete opposite. Loving God is an adventure…
SO… I’ve prayed and thought closely about how I wanted to remedy my “situation” and I landed on a goal list- my wanderlust list. My wanderlust list is simply a list of places that I desire to travel to with prices for flights, lodging and activities that I wish to experience there. It’s a little more than a bucket list but rather a list of short-term goals that I intend to bring into reality. For example: I desire to dance in the Piazza Navona (town square in Rome), sip coffee with a french pastry at Cafè de Paris (eatery in Paris France) , and to shop within the Bulevard Rosa (shopping mall in Barcelona, Spain). These are my plans, to see the world in all of its beauty…
So why now??? Well, I would counter that with why not now? What do we have to lose by going for what we desire? What is there to be afraid of? NOTHING!!!! Absolutely nothing. I think that God desires for us to go beyond where we are, to see more than what we have already seen, and to strive for something bigger than us. You know friends, I’ve come to this place in my life where I am no longer settling for the same thing year in and year out. Don’t get me wrong, my life has been amazing thus far and I am extremely blessed- but there is so much more! There is so much wonder to experience and so much more love to share. I believe that God desires that we release the limitations off of our lives and experience more – he wants more for us!
Well… would you guys like to join me in this movement of breaking limitations, in going after the more? If so, make your own list. Maybe yours is not centered around travel or experiences but rather a personal goal list for your business, or maybe a list of doing those things you were afraid of (mines: sailing – too much water lol)- whatever your list is, write it down and commit to fulfilling each item. God is bigger than our fears and He has no limitations so why should we. Friends, let us strive to live righteously and to go after more of God and more of life!
Alright, let’s go!!!
Until next time,
***Disclaimer: We are to go after those things that are pleasing to God, going after some else’s possessions so that you can have more is not what I meant by going after our desires… The more time we spend with Him, our desires begin to match His and we find ourselves enjoying life without our enjoyment being at the expense of someone else. Love y’all ❤
