The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost has always been one of my favorite poems.
I feel like I stood at that place where the road split for a long time. Looking down one, you see all the things I “should” do. The things my parents and friends and the world in general think a single mom in her 30s should be doing. Then there is the other road, the one where I have to beat my own path. The one where the one thing I should be doing is following the commands Jesus laid out in the New Testament, and heeding His call when He tells me to move!
You guessed it, I took that second road. I took it rather begrudgingly at first. ( I have this picture in mind of God taking me by the hand and dragging me kicking and screaming down the road.) But now….Let me tell the beauty and sheer joy that comes when you stop living by the world’s should, and start chasing after God’s instead!
I am a writer and a Beachbody coach. I spend my days talking to people and pouring out what God pours into me. I can’t tell you how many shades of out of my comfort zone all of those things were. But I LOVE this crazy, outside of the box, out loud and in full color life I am living!
I urge you to heed God’s call. No matter where it takes you. And no matter who thinks you shouldn’t.
