Discovering Extraordinary Grace in an Ordinary Life

Finding A Reason For The Journey

The journey home is difficult when you don’t know where home is. I’ve found myself stumbling along day after day in the early part of these 31 days and for months and years before. I’ve never known where I was going. But all that changed in a moment today.

I was reading the study posted at IF:equip. It is about Rebekah, so I felt a sort of obligation to at least check it out. It takes less than five minutes and the truth was I was procrastinating. So I clicked and I read the verses which led me back to the first day of the study. And the image made my breath catch and release in a slow exhale of “yes”.

I’ve always thought of faith as my belief. I’ve talked about choosing it and how my own is not lost. But I realized in that moment that faith is far more than what I believe. Faith is how I respond to the world in light of what I believe.

It is the name of this road that I’m on. It’s the reason to keep going because what I know to be true about God is only the beginning of the story. It’s the starting point on this journey. The rest of the way is this daily lifetime of living it with feet on the ground and truth in my heart.


My five minutes may be few on words, but they are sinking deep into the heart of who I am, of who I want to be. Don’t miss this beautiful retelling of Rebekah’s story from IF:equip.

Let it sink deep into you and draw up a desire for who you are called to be on your journey home. If you’ve missed any of the posts in this series, you can check them out here.
