Do You Avoid Bumps?

4 Nov
A few years ago, my middle child said, “Mommy, do you know how I walk with my eyes closed and still get there?”
He squeezed his eyes shut and gave a play-by-play demonstration.  “I head in that direction -even though I can’t see it – and just bump into things until I get there!”   His voice and smile showed nothing but sheer delight.
Are you willing to be okay with the bumps as you move?
Growth requires movement.  You may not be sure where you are heading exactly.  It may be necessary to bump, adjust, bump adjust.  Without that, you stand still instead of moving where it is you feel compelled to go.
If your destination feels uncertain, but the urge to get moving is strong, be willing to hit the bumps and keep on adjusting. Be willing to move even before you can see the final destination.
Consider this.  You can be caught up in the same place, doing the same things, knowing you are meant to do more.  Or, you can forge a new, unknown exploration, trusting God to transform you along the way.

2 Corinthians 5:7 (NIV)

For we live by faith, not by sight.

I’m moving, bumps and all.
