Just Around the Riverbend

I love Disney music, and lately I've been listening to a lot of Pocahontas. 
"Just Around the Riverbend" is one of my favorite Disney songs (lol). Pocahontas is just cruising down the river in her canoe with her little raccoon and the air is filled with hope and she has so many dreams for her life  and she's singing about how she doesn't want to live within the limits that her family has set for her, but go beyond those limits and see what her full potential is. She could play it safe by doing what's easiest and expected of her and not be as happy or she could do her own thing and although it would be harder, she would probably be happier. 
Might be a stretch, but I think you can get a couple good lessons out of this song (and many Disney songs!). 

1. In order to live life to the fullest, you HAVE to step out of your comfort zone. The easiest path isn't usually the best path. As Christians, we are not promised that life will be easy or comfortable all the time. If you're in a spot that feels a little uncomfy, THAT'S AWESOME! You're probably growing and bound to reach more of your potential vs. playing it safe and staying stagnant. 

2. Don't get too caught up in the small picture of what's happening now, and get frustrated with current stresses, but live life with the bigger picture in mind, always expectant that God is about to do something amazing in your life 
(assuming you are staying in His will and seeking His guidance). 
He has plans that are far beyond what we could imagine, and the ability to exceed our expectations. We have to trust that!

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 
to Him be the glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen."
Ephesians 3:20 & 21
