My Journey with the Lord: The definition of “Crazy”

Over the last three years, this blog has mostly been in the back of my mind, and I posted randomly.  Even though I tried and tried to post on a regular basis, life got in the way.  But failure is only true failure when you quit trying.  My life really has not changed that much over the last 2 years.  In fact, I find myself frequently re-living the same scenarios in my life- whether it be a type of self-fulfilling prophecy lifestyle, or maybe I have not learned all the lessons that God has taught me.  Either way the point I know is being made is to keep moving forward- fall forward.  I think that is one of the most important lessons in life is to learn to make even failures a learning opportunity, and not beat yourself up for mistakes or errors.   I read once that the definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.  Cheers to trying something new!  A new way to look at life!  A new way to embrace adventure! This year I have decided to revamp my blog.  You may have noticed that we have a whole new look and new identity.  It was picked with my fellow travelers in mind.  As Christians, it is exactly what we are- travelers on a journey to someplace better.  This earth or fallen world is not our home.  The Bible refers to us as sojourners, pilgrims, travelers etc…It is how I got the title for our new identity on this blog.  This year I have learned that the ultimate destination for Christians is not Heaven but instead is to become more Christlike.  SO if you think of your destination as a state of being then you will come to realize that the Journey of Life is the destination.  This place is like one giant classroom meant to teach us important lessons and help us grow in Christlike character so that we can get back to that place from whence we originated.  We came from Heaven and to Heaven we will return.  I have learned to think of life like one of those amazing action movies full of twists and turns where the characters go on this grand adventure.  In the course of the adventure, they make friends, learn to love and forgive, learn about themselves, and serve a higher purpose.  Let’s share the adventure together as it was meant to be!  Let’s commit to never stop learning, growing, or loving!  Happy New Year!
