The following is taken from the author's note in the book Through Painted Deserts by Donald Miller:
"My prayer is that your story will have involved some leaving and some coming home, some summer and some winter, some roses blooming out like children in a play. My hope is your story will be about changing, about getting something beautiful born inside of you, about learning to love a woman or a man, about learning to love a child, about moving yourself around water, around mountains, around friends, about learning to love others more than we love ourselves, about learning oneness as a way of understanding God. We get one story, you and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and the resolution. It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn't it?
It might be time for you to go. It might be time to change, to shine out.
I want to repeat one word for you:
- Don Miller
Have you ever wondered if God has more planned for you?
Are you willing to go?
I think it is the best life lived, waiting and seeking the Lord for each step. I hope you are not stuck, I hope you are always seeking and listening.
