To Live Is An Awfully Big Adventure

I don't know why, but lately I have been very excited. I am excited for opportunities, I am excited at work, I am excited at home, I'm definitely excited about this blog and I have a calm sort of excitement about growing up and becoming the woman that Christ has called me to be. I am excited for the adventure that my 23rd year on this earth will provide me with. Today I was driving home and found adventure in rolling down my window even though it was raining, and blasting We Found Love by Rihanna (she has finally produced a decent song!) and singing and dancing to my heart's content (why yes, I do sing and dance while driving). I believe that not worrying produces a peace that passes all understanding and of course this peace comes from Christ alone (Philippians 4:6-7). My life isn't perfect by far, but I am completely happy in Christ. Sometimes I am afraid because I know that good times are just temporary seasons of life. I don't want to be disappointed, but when I expect that I shall be disappointed, then I am doubting God's faithfulness. When I consider all the challenges and trials that I have overcome, He has been by my side through each one and has used all my circumstances for my good and His glory. No matter what may happen I will become more like Christ (ONLY by His power, naturally). I need to use what He gives me and be content no matter what my circumstances are. With Christ as my Lord, I will never be disappointed. I say to live is an awfully big adventure especially when He is holding my hand and guiding me every step of the way.
