It was like marveling at butterfly coming out from a chrysalis or holding my newborn daughter’s hand and noticing her tiny flawlessness. God has knitted together his creations with destined perfection.
I love it that my husband and I have the courage to pack up our life and see the world. But, this last weekend I had to battle my fear before we got on the roads. Half of the 15 hour trip (one way) is on unpaved, isolated highways. Engine trouble could result in being stranded for hours, or even a day, depending on when and who comes to your aid. I already have an unreasonable fear of car accidents. To top it off, I wasn’t thrilled about taking my toddler out of her routine for four nights in hotels and three days of driving.
But, as I gazed at Ayer’s rock, a buried mountain in the middle of a desert, I knew it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Courage and faith got me out my comfort zone and God showed me his majesty.
Isn’t that the way it always goes? When we battle our fear and step out in faith, our world expands and God gifts us with experiences that we could never imagine.
