When I was a child I loved movies like Indiana Jones, The Explorers, The Goonies, Pretty much any action based adventure. The adventure allows you to utilize so many skills that we take neglect to exercise spiritually. You have the treasure hunts, the unsolved mysteries, The careful eye to watch for booby traps and danger. Generally the start of any adventure is if the individual can overcome fear and embrace the inner strength they never knew they had. I love how the pieces to the puzzles come together and the adventure was based on destiny and divine timing. Of course it appears that children are very brave. Willing to risk it all no questions asked. Fearless and eager to go on any adventurous voyage. We lose this for some reason when we get older. We are no longer searching for life’s clues and the adventures with twists and turns that we once admired as children. The treasures of God are of no value to us as we are hoping someone else can lead the voyage for us. Quite frankly we want the end result and the end result only. I guess this is why I’m known to be extremely difficult at times. I look forward to the clues, the voyages in the unknown. While I admit we all have times when we reflect on being a child we also have the ability to recall all of the adventurous God has led us out of victorious. Remember the beauty when you didn’t need to know everything and you could just go with it? The difference between a child’s heart and a adult heart is the willingness and receptive attributes. I believe as adults we can be subconsciously blockers to other and ourselves. Get the adventure back into your heart. Be daring to take on the journey that God has set before you. Remember the bravery and the importance of overcoming situations through christ that you didn’t think you could overcome. Dare to be adventurous and courageous.
