What If You Began Your Day With Adventure Time Instead Of Quiet Time?

Here's an idea that I love:  What if  you began your day with adventure time with God instead of quiet time with God?  What would be the difference?  Here's five reasons to think about beginning your day this way...
  1. Adventure focuses on action rather than waiting for things to happen.  Ask yourself, "What can I do today to move closer to my goals?  to God's plan for my life?  to create God's kingdom here on earth?
  2. Adventure opens our minds and our hearts to new possibilities.  It opens our eyes to the miracles around us rather than the humdrum sameness that we take for granted.
  3. Adventure engages the other people in our lives in our plans and activities.  It enriches and expands our relationships.
  4. Adventure overcomes timidity and fear of change through our perception.  Think about moving from one community to another in terms of loss and saying good-bye.  Now think of moving in terms of meeting new friends and having new experiences... see what I mean?
  5. Adventure provides challenge and keeps us interested and motivated.  It energizes us and keeps us growing and learning.
Now I know that we all need some time to be still and know God, but what if we also planned some adventure time to run and play with God? What if we started our day with adventure time instead of quiet time with God?  What would you do differently?  How would that affect your day?

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming----Wow...What a Ride!

  1. Wow! I LOVE your perspective! I especially like #4; it's all in seeing the glass half-empty or half-full.
    God has so many wonderful plans for us if we're willing to climb on board and take the ride!
    Thanks, Lynne!
