So, I didn’t quite get to go on a road trip today, but I did get to go rollerblading! I hadn’t even planned on going until I thought of going when I was waiting to be let back into my deadbolt locked house (yeah…fun story…I love getting locked out!). I definitely explored some new territory and got myself into a few “uphill” adventures, but still made my way back to my house in one piece. Well, we’ll see what my legs say tomorrow about that! Either way, I loved the feeling of the wind and the warm sunshine (finally!). I am so thankful for the warm weather! Now I just have to find some more trails.
In other news, I went to church (Substance) with a friend (Tiffany! One of my redheads! love her!) today. I enjoyed getting a glimpse into another church and seeing how they do things. I had fun being with new people and being let into her world. Plus, the sermon ended with a couple of great questions:
- Fall in love with the Promiser not the Promise
- Focus on God, not your circumstances
“Hello God did you lose your compass? I thought the Promised Land was over here??” My heart keeps wondering why I’m heading the direction I am when I want/ed to go a different way. God led the people into the desert so that they could worship Him. When the people were led out of Egypt they could have taken the “beach road” but instead they headed down into the desert and then back up. Sometimes the promise is delayed so that we can learn something in the “desert” and fall more in love with the Promiser before we get to the promise. In summation, the sermon served as a good reminder to seek and worship God in the times of “desert” and let Him bring me to the Promise Land according to His compass not mine.
