“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity and conservatism, all of which appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun” (Christopher McCandless)
Lord, my I have the initiative and boldness to buck security, comfort and conservatism. Help me be willing to make sacrifices to embrace Your calling and to walk in the conviction of your Spirit and Truth.
