“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
These past two years have consisted of me learning what my true identity is and walking in it. I believe that I am soon to be entering a new phase of life involving risks and blazing trails.
This morning I was reading, and God jumped out of the pages and slapped me in the face (in a loving way). I have always been the good girl who followed all the rules and tried not to rock the boat. I seriously value peace. I was the milk in the refrigerator…good stuff, but with a pretty bland taste.
However, God is calling me to be orange juice. God wants to give me zing. God can’t use me to change the world until I step out of the mold and am not afraid of receiving flack for jumping into something that has never been done before.
Perhaps I rely too much on precedent. I go where I’m told and do what I’m told. However, before me is a book with blank pages just waiting to be filled. What if I erased all that I think is expected of me and jumped into the story?
I have no idea what that means. However, the challenge has been presented. Be orange juice. Be a shock to the taste buds of the world. Live on purpose. Blaze new trails. Because I don’t know about you, but when my time on this great planet is done, I want to be that supernova.
