My name is Sarah and welcome to my blog!. You may be wondering what the purpose of this blog is and what it will be about. Well, first off I better tell you that I do something that is very interesting. I travel for a living with an evangelistic group all over the US. The group I travel with actually gets the privilege of staying with the families of the churches that we minister to and it is usually very home-like and comfortable! And to make this blog a little more fun…I might throw in some funny situations or stories. You never know!
The purpose of this blog then is to tell you what God is teaching me on the road as I travel. I guess that’s why I have named my blog “Beyond the Road Less Traveled.” The team I travel on is not just about traveling. It’s about helping churches be healthy in their spiritual growth and also in our own lives. Being on the road is not easy. You’re away from home; away from ease and comfort. No, I don’t mean physical ease and comfort, I actually mean spiritual ease and comfort. It is a daily battle here when you are spreading the gospel and you are constantly being convicted by God’s Holy Word!
God has taught me so much on the road already that I almost don’t know where to begin. First, off I would like to say that I have learned a lot from the people on the team. I have learned more than I thought I would actually. I guess you could say that it is difficult to be humble when you are trying to impress other people on the team. Yep…I’m fearful. In fact, that is probably the biggest thing that God is trying to teach me is to trust in Him and to worry more about what He thinks of me than other people. People are going to see my mistakes and they certainly see when I am fearful towards them. I know I’m not the only one sinning, but it sure feels like it. Basically, being on the road is a real test of who you are and it will definitely show you your weaknesses and your selfishness. I will probably get more into this in a later post, but for now, thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you!
