I’ve been living on the road for the last three and a half weeks. I was staying with friends along the way, but am now in a place where I know less people so I’ve been sleeping in my car more.
It’s a homeless lifestyle or sorts, but by choice.
If I’m being honest, I don’t really know the end goal or why I’m living this way except that it felt like the right next step. It felt like it was what I needed to do to figure out the next thing in life.
It’s been challenging in ways I didn’t think about - finding the right (safe) place to sleep, having less human interaction than I anticipated, financial things, etc.
Every step of the way, though, I’ve had provision in just the way I needed it.
With everything in me, I believe there’s purpose in what I’m doing, even when most days I don’t know what that is.
I’m just doing what I know know to do today. I’m living one step at a time and I know I can’t quit. I can’t give up.
Last night I had the opportunity to worship in the street with Sean Feucht and his crew (#letusworship) and we sang this refrain over and over, “Never gonna give up, never gonna give up, No!”.
It stirred something in my spirit and reminded me the importance of perseverance.
I can’t give up because then I’ll never discover what’s at the end of the road. I don’t know what it is, but I know it’s worth it!
What do you have that you won’t give up on?
