Road Trip ramah: Spiritual Nourishment 4 strength!
1 Peter 2:8-10
"He is the stone that makes people stumble, the rock that makes them fall."[a] They stumble because they do not obey God's word, and so they meet the fate that was planned for them. 9 But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests,[b] a holy nation, God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. 10 "Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God's people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God's mercy."[New Living Translation (NLT)

Road Trip 2 endurance/promises for soul nourishment
"You can deal with an enormous amount of success as well as an enormous amount of failure without losing your identity, because your identity is that you are the beloved. Long before your father and mother, your brothers and sisters, your teachers, your church, or any people touched you in a loving as well as in a wounding way-long before you were rejected by some person or praised by somebody else-that voice has been there always. "I have loved you with an everlasting love." That love is there before you were born and will be there after you die."

Road Trip personal thoughts!
It is just amazing to me how I have gotten through these 33 days of this God Adventure Road Trip! Choice by Choice has been a great revelation for me because it focuses me on Jesus 1st, not my personal goals. Moment to moment I am following Him, I am changing on the tick of a second to stay in pace with Him in my all and everything. I am learning His ways, His truths and His life velocity for me. He is setting the Championship pace for my run through this life unto the finish line. Every morning I find myself in His Presence, looking for the footprint He has left for me to fit my steps into for that day. He is always faithful and it is always there, His impression for me to pursue with His personal intent that I be position in His Grace choice by choice.
Lord, teach me how you want me to live. Then I will follow your truth. Give me a heart that doesn't want anything more than to worship you.

Road Trip personal thoughts!
The last few days, the biggest revelation to me was that I was so worried about Who I was. I had exchanged a lie for a truth because God is not concerned so much about who I am on the outside as He is about WHOSE I am on the inside. This part of my Road Trip Adventure has really impacted me and I deeply realize that in order to Grow 2 Go unto endurance, I need to be focused on WHOSE I am and not who I am. Jesus! I am yours!
