Everyday is a chance to train yourself for something. I’m #trainingformy40s, what are you training for?

the Undiscovered Country

Star Trek 6 was in my mind, one of the best of them.

In an effort for the Klingons and the Federation to end their war, this term was used to describe the future. No one knows for sure what it is going to look like… except God.

***Vagueness Disclaimer*** I am about to be vague. You are warned.

God has a way of working his plans, despite our efforts sometimes.

Ronda and I have been praying through some things for many months now. And a couple of months of ago, we took the plunge and finally made decision to follow God in a particular way. This was a scary decision for us… but we finally did it.

And God has not stopped moving since we did this. We were subsequently enveloped in a whirlwind of movement of the Spirit. I have no explanation for it, except that God was calling and I listened.

I thought to myself, ‘this is incredible’. It felt like we were getting no response from God until we decided and stopped being ‘like a man tossed by the waves’. I am reminded of Revelation when Jesus speaks to the church in Laodicea, he says he hates their lukewarmness. Is being tossed byt he waves, unable to decide the same as lukewarmness? I don’t know, but I have to think that kind of disunity or inability to move forward isn’t what God is calling us to.

Where does the journey from here? I’m not entirely sure. But I know that I am done standing around and waiting, I am following God in this journey to see where it goes.

God is awesome, and great things are ahead. How do I know?

Because I’ve met this God I follow before and I know what he is like.

  1. Dude, this is awesome. I’ve always said there is no sense in sitting around paralyzed waiting for God to spell out his dreams for you in your bowl of Alpha-bits (remember those?) I think if you are trying to honor God with your life and legitimately follow Him, he will bless your path, whatever you decide to do. Thanks for this encouraging post.

      Hey dude,
      Thanks man, I really appreciate the encouragement. I do remember Alpha Bits and honestly would now like a bowl thanks to you mentioning them! I agree we don’t have to wait for all the answers to be spelled out, sometimes we just have to move in the directions that God is taking us… whether we understand it or not. I do try to honor God with my life, my life choices and the ways I interact with others, especially my family. Awesome, I’m glad you enjoyed it.
