My friend Kristi and I have just returned from a weekend of craziness in which we have taken a road trip. We decided that we wanted to go on a road trip on Tuesday. It would be fun, we said. But, how often do we do the things that we say will be fun? It has happened to me on many occasions.
I believe that sometimes fear or practicality can get in the way of something God may be calling us to do. What if he is calling us to go to South Bend, Indiana and meet fun and exciting people on the way?
So, as the Garth Brooks song says, "life is not tried, it is mearly survived if you are standing outside the fire." who wants to just survive? I want to live!!
