When To Just “Do”

I imagine He sees who we’ll all become, too, if we start RSVPing yes to His invitations and go after those things He’s made us to love. It’s not all planned out for us either, and that’s where most people get too nervous to take the next step. But know this: when Jesus invites us on an adventure, He shapes who we become with what happens along the way.

This is an excerpt from “Love Does” by Bob Goff. It struck me in the early morning hours of today as my eyes were still waking up. In this season of life, I’m learning how to identify what it is that I love, and then what to do about it. I still have so much to learn. At what point do we slow down to accumulate the resources, the head knowledge, the experience before diving into something new? At what point do we jump in anyway and decide to learn on the fly? I don’t want to miss out.

But for now, I’m patient. Eager to see what’s next. That’s enough for now.

By the way, a narrative piece of mine inspired by a recent post was featured on Prodigal Magazine last Friday. View the piece here. I was both excited and nervous to share my words on such a public platform, but the response has been so encouraging. Makes me value the power of story.
