I am writing this from 30,000 feet. Beth and I are on a flight from Sarasota to Houston, where I am speaking at a men’s event. I always bring along some things to read on the plane. For this trip, I grabbed from my shelf a book called Georgia and the Carolinas. It is full of maps and pointers on the zillion places to visit across those three states: Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
I randomly opened the book and came across Columbus, Georgia, a city I have never seen. Here are just a few things that interested me:
- Coca-Cola Space Science Center
- Civil War Museum
- Lunch Box Museum
- White water rafting
- Chattahoochee Riverwalk
You read that correctly – the Chattahoochee Riverwalk, a 15-mile pathway along the (you guessed it!) Chattahoochee River.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever vacationed in Columbus, Georgia. And that’s just one spot on the road, requiring a few paragraphs in a book filled with 383 pages of 6-font descriptions of places to visit in just three of America’s 50 states.
There is so much more to see in this world than any of us will ever get to.
I think recovery is like that. Your recovery has brought you incredible benefits. But there is so much more out there, waiting to be experienced.
Recovery Step: The Bible promises us that “eye has not seen” all that God still want to do.
