The Journey Onward.
“Where there’s life there’s hope, and need of vittles.”― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
The rush of the wind, the sound of remoteness, the decision of where to place your feet. I love going on adventures. As a kid I would go to the creek close to my house and just start walking through the woods and build little (in my eyes, functional) huts. Or I would run through the fields of battle in hopes of winning the war against what darkness lay in front of me. In these days I would visualize myself as a Ranger, like Aragorn, but my own self, Mitchell Bradford, the hero of my own story, defeater of hundreds of thousands of dark foes. Even today, I think I still find myself day dreaming about the wars I fight and the quests I can go on, and always on these adventures, now and as a kid, I would find life in the hope in these journeys (Along with what food lay around).
Now that I am older, a young adult, blech. I long for that rush of an adventure. The innate desire and need to record what these adventures are and how they impact me as a believer in the I Am. The more I write the more I see that there is adventure and a journey for all that run to His side.
And here. I publicize these adventures and revelations in hope that one day I can get my thoughts together and write a lengthier account. Whether these things come in more vulnerable chapters or analytical chapters, we will see together what that will look like.
Much of the journeys I have found that have impacted me quite intensely has been the mountain experiences in my life, hence the multiple mountains I hike. But I also find the bulk of my raw emotional meets with God has been with community either here or in the various countries I have had the blessing and honor of going to.
That is where I invite you to join me. To join me in community and go along on this journey that I am on. To boldly say yes and jump off the canyon into the current of God’s everlasting love. Join me in community and reach out so that together we will bring revival to men and women around the world.
Here on this blog is where I will share what is going on in my life and what the steps forward are for me. I hope you will partner with me on this journey and even share your journey with me and others around you as well. In doing so, this will be a great way to build community in Christ and in love.
Let’s take the Journey Onward.
