How does one silence a heart in which God has suddenly placed the desire to travel? How can we placate it with the things of this world, when this heart wants to go out and love? It’s a restlessness that can’t be held back. I have always suffered from a particular case of wanderlust, and especially now.
The world is so big.
There’s so much to see.
And as much as I love it here at home…
I want to be out there.
I know I can do it. Jesus has already overcome all things. In Him, I can do all things. He led His disciples out of their comfort zones to show them the world as it really was. He already knows what’s going to happen, and has the solution ready. It’s all going to be worth it.
I want to go places and tell stories–but above all stories I might come up with, I want to make sure every soul I meet knows the story of Jesus and how He loves us.
Other stories inform, persuade, entertain–but this story saves. First, I will tell this story–and then there’ll come the others.
You’ll find me in a little cafe somewhere, ready to write a new story (again.) But I will also be ready to tell this story if I get the chance.
He will give me that chance many times.
Yes, I suffer from wanderlust…and feel like my adventure is starting soon. Very soon. This time I can see God paving the road for me.
I’m scared and excited.
I want an adventure, and it’s coming–I can feel it!
