The Earth Below My Feet

The Earth Below My Feet


Have you ever prepared to do something that you knew was the right thing, but it seemed crazy? Almost everyday we are asking, “are we crazy?”

In these times we keep our eyes on the why. What is God’s purpose that will prevail according to Proverbs 19:21?

As a family we love most of the words to Mumford and Sons songs. I say most because there are some songs, we need to skip over 😊. We can relate with their passion, their deep sense of words, and their inquisitive wonder. A song that has felt like a theme song for the trip has been “Below My Feet”. In this song Mumford writes,

Keep the earth below my feet

From my sweat, my blood runs weak

Let me learn from where I have been

Keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn

Keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn

This song reminds me that we are going to be very close to the ground we came from. The Daley family as a unit will be touching more ground than we ever have in one season. We will be close to the dirt, the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean, the mountains, camper hookups, the elements, firepits, waterfalls, hiking trails, relationships, clients, and so much more. 

We will also be in contact with less people we know. We are in a sense removing ourselves from our current community where we are known. It feels humbling and modest. It fills us with trepidation! Yet, three years ago God planted this idea in Greg’s mind, and I can’t ignore the excitement we had and the drive that has pushed us to follow through. Without a shadow of a doubt, I know part of God’s purpose that will prevail is the Daley’s contribution to the world around us. How will God keep our eyes serving? How will God keep our hands learning? How can we serve and learn with you?

I’m excited to find out.

What is God doing? Pray for continued Clarity of Vision, the state of being able to see where to serve and where to learn……to be continued.
