"Journey" - Sara

Sara's new song, "Journey," is about choosing the paths we take on the journey of life. Sometimes our choices are too few. Sometimes our choices are too many. And sometimes it's hard to choose which paths are the best to take. Many times there isn't a "right" or "wrong" path. There are just different paths that lead to different outcomes. The important thing for us to do is to choose the paths that can help us most fully enjoy the adventure of life. Thankfully, God accompanies us through the twists and turns of our journeying in order to offer us guidance along the way. The presence of God continually beckons us forward to new and unforeseen territory. This makes each path we choose a holy adventure. Humanity is blessed with an adventure-driven life.

We've been searching,
We've been hoping,
We've traveled a very long way.
We've been talking,
We've been listening,
'Bout time we start to see the light of day.

Heading down the road, wind blowing at our back -
We can choose the destination, but we gotta throw away the map.

You and I, we have the world on a string;
Feet planted on the ground, reaching out for greater things.
Here we are, what's your dream? What's your pleasure?
'Cause all we have is now, and we can choose our own adventure.

We've been waiting,
We've been wanting,
We've been there and we've done all that.
We've been trying,
We've been looking;
Only seen our own reflection looking back.

Heading down the road, wind blowing at our back -
We can choose the destination, but we gotta throw away the map.

You and I, we have the world on a string;
Feet planted on the ground, reaching out for greater things.
Here we are, what's your dream? What's your pleasure?
'Cause all we have is now, and we can choose our own adventure.

We've been thinking,
We've been watching;
Clouds have cleared and now they're gone from the sky.
Sun is rising,
Dawn is breaking,
It's time to spread our wings and learn how to fly.

Heading down the road, wind blowing at our back -
We can choose the destination, but we gotta throw away the map.

You and I, we have the world on a string;
Feet planted on the ground, reaching out for greater things.
Here we are, what's your dream? What's your pleasure?
'Cause all we have is now, and we can choose our own adventure.

You can choose your own adventure.



If you enjoyed the lyrics of this song, you may also enjoy reading Bruce Epperly's book Holy Adventure: 41 Days of Audacious Living. Here is an excerpt from the book: "God's holy adventure calls us to be creative and innovative right now as we listen for divine inspiration, and then to respond by coloring outside the lines and give God something new as a result of our own personal artistry. In contrast to Rich Warren's view of God, I do not believe that God determines everything in advance but that we are invited to be God's companions in creating a future that is, to some degree, open and unfinished...God calls us to become creative companions in God's new and surprising creation" (22). Enjoy the adventure!
