You know how some songs are just great driving songs? You roll your windows down, crank it up and sing like no one’s listening. That’s what Tom Cochrane’s early-90’s hit “Life is a Highway” is for me. My best friend Kim even dedicated the song to me on her bridesmaids CD. It’s a fun, happy-clappy tune about riding down the highway of life, enjoying the ride. As I prepare my move tomorrow (*gulp*) that song echoes in my head (and my ipod). Along with the excitement of starting a new job, a new ministry, and a new me….a nagging fear follows. What if I’m not good enough? What if I don’t fit in at AIM? What if I made a bad decision? What if my boyfriend and I can’t handle a long distance relationship? What if I can’t raise anymore support? These questions and more are deafening, and at times drown out the still, small voice I know to be my Savior’s.
“My grace is enough; it's all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9 (The Message)
So, as this new adventure begins, I swallow my fears and keep my eyes on Him. Please be in prayer for traveling safety this weekend as Steve and I drive up Friday morning. Next blog…..I’ll be in Georgia!
Jesus said, "Mark my words, no one who sacrifices house, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children, land—whatever—because of me and the Message will lose out. They'll get it all back, but multiplied many times in homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land—but also in troubles. And then the bonus of eternal life! This is once again the Great Reversal: Many who are first will end up last, and the last first." – Mark 10:28 - 30
