BMW motorcycles & being here now
I enjoy synchronistic moments like the one I m about to relate to you, and my life is full of them. My neighbor loaned me his DVD copy of Long Way Round, the incredible story of Ewan McGregor s and Charlie Boorman s trip around the world on a pair of BMW motorcycles. Being a motorcycle enthusiast myself, I m enjoying the DVD and have watched half of the 5 one-hour episodes already. During the fourth episode, while they are riding through Kazakhstan, Ewan says: I feel like I absolutely belong in this moment now. It s where I should be, and luckily it s where I find myself! (laughs) Beautiful words! That s how I m feeling these days. This morning as I was reading Chambers, he says: We must never put our dreams of success as God s purpose for us; his purpose may be exactly the opposite. We have an idea that God is leading us to a particular end, a desired goal; he is not his end is the process that I see him walking on the waves, no shore in sight, no success, no goal, just the absolute certainty that it is alright . Same idea in different words. Like U2 sings Beautiful Day , what you don t have you don t need it now! Yup! I feel that's very true for me right now. I feel I belong here. I should be here. And, fortunately, I find myself here. And I encourage my church towards the same sentiment.
