Living Life


LeaveGo out from here. Leave.

Even if this is a good place. And especially if it’s not.


“Don’t let yourself be complacent,” I tell myself. There’s more to grow into.

I’m not packing my bags for an unknown land and leaving behind all that I’ve ever known. Just taking a walk to a new part of town. Exploring areas of my heart still tinged in darkness rather than the light of Christ.

All that is familiar is not beneficial. Comfortable doesn’t always mean safe and secure. And sometimes life’s greatest adventures lay waiting for us to leave the familiar trail we’ve walked decades before.

It’s worth the risk—to leave the every day for the extraordinary. To trade attitudes, perspectives, and practices as I upgrade my levels of obedience to the Father.

I choose my emotions.

I decide what thoughts receive space in my head.

I spend time as I see fit.

Today I go to healthier places and I’m leaving some poor habits behind.
