What you do this summer can define the rest of your life.

Let me say that again: what you do this summer can define the rest of your life.

Broken, beat down paths and the monotonous rhythms you used to walk in don't have to be tread ever again. You can choose a different path. Old paths lead you into old habits that lead you into old addictions.  Your old paths appear to have life but will never bear fruit. They will never satisfy. They bring joy temporal.

Jesus stands at the door and knocks.

He calls out to you, "Come, follow Me."

God cries out to His people to forsake broken paths, but they refuse.

The path God has chosen for us will have obstacles, consequences, and hardships, but it will be worth it. There will be roadblocks, inconveniences, and discomforts, but it will be worth it.  It will cost us everything, but it will be worth it!

And the only way you will breach the dissenting walls standing in the way of your obedience is by faith. Your YES to Jesus this summer is your radical faith step leading to a more enjoyable, costly, and life-giving journey. A life of adventure and risk-taking for Jesus. A life lived for something worth dying for. 

So what is it this week? What is it this month? What is it this summer?

What are the untrodden faith steps God is calling you to make to stay free and #summerwell?
