I remember one day when I was in 2nd grade, I missed my bus and had decided I would just try to walk home. Moments later, I found myself crying, lost, and confused just a few blocks from school (and my house). Seven year old me was in a complete panic.
Getting lost at that age wasn't very exciting , but as I've gotten older, I've learned to look at getting lost a little differently. Now, lost means more that not knowing where I'm going, it means trusting that where I am is where I'm meant to be.
When it comes to taking risk, like the the one I took at seven, we may think we know what we're doing, but the truth is at any moment things can change. And you want to know something? THAT'S OK!
When you make the often uncomfortable decision to just follow the path that God has laid out before you, you have to be willing to be "lost". The beauty in doing that is that you allow yourself to be present in the moment; to connect with your now; to appreciate your season of purpose right where you are.
Looking so far ahead and trying to figure out all the steps in between can be overwhelming and exhausting, resulting it us stopping before we even start. Sometimes we have to just do it blind and remind ourselves that "we walk by faith and not by sight". That there's a reason we don't know, and it's because where you are right now is what matters most in the moment.
You're next is right now! So, get lost in it!
