The book grabbed me from page one!!! "Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing." (Helen Keller) Living dangerously has not been my passion or focus. OK, I'm sitting here with my 4 front teeth still knocked out...its a crazy life, but its my life and I try not to rock the boat toooo hard and I really like safety.
Page 6 got my attention..
"Every once in a while, I have random thoughts that seem to come out of nowhere (me too) Here's a thought that fired across my synapses not long ago: Do angels yawn? I seriously wonder if angels have the capacity to get bored? More important, I wonder if some of us are living such safe lives that not only are we bored, but so are our guardian angels. If they could, would our guardian angels coax us out of our "cage" and beg us to give them something dangerous to do? Since when did it become safe to follow Christ? Maybe its time to come out of the cage and live dangerously for the cause of Christ!!!!"
Wild Goose Chase theme: God-ordained passion
I have a few very specific passions in my life.... marriage, family, children, Africa, orphans and adoption!!! I'm learning that when God puts a "passion" in your heart, that God-ordained passion becomes my responsibility!! I can be irresponsibly responsible or responsibly irresponsible!! (ahhhh you'll have to read the book to follow that:)
"Soooo what makes you cry? What makes you pound your fist on the table? What makes you smile? If you want to discover your God-ordained passions, then you need to identify what makes you sad, mad, or glad. And somewhere in the sadness, madness or gladness you will find the WILD GOOSE CHASE waiting for you!!!"
I'm on the hunt. I'm asking the Lord to specifically show me how He wants to use me...all of me from head to toe. I want to pursue the God-ordained passions in my life. I can't wait to see what adventure He has for my life.
You know I love contests and I love prizes!!! I want to hear YOUR God-ordained passion. What gives you Wild Goose bumps? At the end of the week, I'll draw a name & the winner gets the book I'm going crazzzzyyy over...
