AZ road trip

My brother and I traveled from Arkansas to Arizona and camped there for a week. I cannot describe how good it was for my soul to be surrounded by such beauty. All five of my senses were exploding. These photos do absolutely no justice to what we saw or what we felt.

I love discovering. I want this life. At least for a little while before settling down. I have an overwhelming desire to see, to go. I am restless but I usually hide it away. 
My desires are still being refined as I give them back to God. Sometimes I wonder why I feel restless about some things, but I believe my life moving in the direction it should go. I'm not passionate about very many things, but what I am, I feel so strongly about. I just want my desires to be pure, to be true, to be refined. 

It’s funny. When you leave your home and wander really far, you always think “I want to go home.” But then you come home, and of course it’s not the same. You can’t live with it, you can’t live away from it. And it seems like from then on there’s always this yearning for some place that doesn’t exist. I felt that. Still do. I’m never completely at home anywhere.

Like my feelings, I wish my words would flow and blossom. The ability to be able to convey a thought or a passion is still a mystery to me. If you don't understand this, that's okay.

My thoughts are unstable and weak. I cannot follow my own heart, I have to follow after God. And so I will continue to give these desires and passions back to God and see how my life unfolds. I already see it moving in a beautiful direction.
