"Draw near to Me with a thankful heart... Gratitude enables you to perceive Me more clearly and to rejoice in our love-relationship...I am totally trustworthy. I long to make your life a glorious adventure... I am always doing something new within My loved ones. Be on the lookout for all that I have prepared for you." (196)
My personality tends to love adventure, but it has to be a safe adventure. I'm not into risky adventures. So a "glorious adventure" sounds good, as long as it's not too risky (or too dirty, too sweaty or too scary! How sad is that!?)
The risk, of course, is that I "must stop clinging to old ways" and be "on the lookout for... something new...(He's) prepared for (me.)"
During our time in Hawaii I am completing the course work and testing for a second certification in Life Coaching. Several years ago I sensed God directing me into this "new adventure" and as I have been stepping out in faith and obedience it has become a "glorious adventure!" I am being 'coached' and challenged to "know (Him) in greater depth and breadth" and to know myself on a whole new level, too.
It will be a joy to partner with others as they take the "glorious adventure" God has in store for them, too.
