Do you find yourself chasing after another person’s adventure in life? Do you watch your friends and neighbors and wish that you were living their life? Maybe you wish you had their car, their family, their job, their home. Maybe your endless scrolling on social media has given you a sense that you are missing out…you are less than…you are lacking. If this sounds like you, you’re not alone. Many of us have a hard time pursing our one and only unique life. We pursue the life and dreams of others, and we settle for the status quo, missing out on our own unique adventure…the adventure that God has for us.
Our epidemic…chasing after someone else’s adventure.
Our biggest challenge…giving up the normal things that keep us from being the person God created us to be.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Today, on the Giving Up Normal podcast, I share part one of my interview with Brett Hardy, creator of the podcast The Adventure of Surrender. Brett believes not only that God has a unique adventure for you, but that you have everything you need…right now…to experience it! His “secret sauce” to the adventure of surrender is learning to be content. And when you can be content in your current season, with your particular circumstances, God often then brings you to the next thing.
I know you’ll be encouraged by his insights and tips to embracing contentment as you pursue the unique adventure God has for you. Just click play below. And as you go on your journey, we hope you’ll join us in this prayer:
Thank you, God, for today.
Thank you for what today holds.
Thank you for who I am.
Help me to be the person you created me to be.
Help me to influence others for Your glory.
Help me to remember that I go nowhere by accident.
You have a unique, wonderful adventure ready for me today.
Help me to surrender to that adventure and live this day to the fullest.
