I was reminded today to “not fear”.
So much messed up things in the world. Why fear?
Even the Bible is full of passages of God asking us to not fear.
We all have a natural tendency to fear. We can’t control all the variables. We can’t control other people’s reactions.
My friend Gigantical and his wife are looking at RV’s instead of homes for a future move.
Why? Do you know what you are getting your self into?
I have to remind myself that not that long ago we did the same thing. I am worried they are going to buy one that doesn’t have enough cargo capacity. Or they will just hate the life style.
Why am I worried? They are smart. I need to quit getting stressed out!
Every winter for 2 years I am parked quasi illegally. Why fear? It does nothing.
The month of March we are working on Sleep. Our goal is to get 8-10 hours of sleep a night plus a nap in when we can. Even if the nap is only 20 minutes.
Do you know how hard it is to train your body to sleep? Its sort of embarrassing. No wonder we are all messed up!
In the famous prayer by David in Psalm 23, David says “The Lord is my shepherd. He makes me lay down in green pastures”
Our goal is to not be put in a position in life where we are MADE to lay down. I want to be someone who has mastered rest.
And someone who has resisted fear.
Living in an RV has been a big help in resisting fear. I live close to nature. I see all the many things that could go wrong with my home. I have to learn to put away the fear and enjoy my present circumstances.
My problems are just obstacles that will bring me joy when they are dealt with.
Do you want to do something different and meaningful with your life? Then don’t be afraid! Don’t let others bind you with fear!
There are only a few weeks of winter left. So far this year we have our big move back to the RV park in April. We also are going to take a mini vacation in a few weeks. There is a hotel about an hour north of here that has the most amazing hot tub and swimming pool. And an RV park. $15 dollars a night gets us unlimited power and pool usage!
We also have our vacation approved for a gigantic 2 week New York trip. We are going with our good friends and staying at an amazing RV park outside of NYC. Should be a blast!
2014 is shaping up! I have a lot of vacation time to burn this year, so let’s see where we end up!
