Just Enough



Funny, I always seem to only just have enough for the next adventure or endeavour! Goes to show that even if you don't have tons of money left in the bank, you can still live a life that's full of new experiences and challenges.

Because a full life isn't ultimately determined by how much money you got. It's about how much you're willing to give and let go, knowing that money doesn't last, possessions are quick to fade.

I'll forever be thankful to my Dad and Mom for showing me that it doesn't matter how much or little you have, you can still be generous with yourself and others!

Sure, if you must save the money, save (I definitely need some saving skills because I am terrible at saving and keeping track of money! If someone were to take money from my wallet - which my parents and sisters have done as a practical joke on me to see if I'd notice - I wouldn't notice it!).

Having said that, you must also learn that when you have the opportunity to spend it for something you know won't pass your way again, spend. If you can use it for good, use, don't hoard. Because how will you know if you'll even live tomorrow to hoard more money for the next day?

As the young missionary martyr Jim Elliot said, 'He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.'

No fool indeed!

The Difference

Wayfarers walk by faith and dream with eyes wide open. Living simply, they go places, break barriers, embrace people, and build bridges. They're cool if things go wrong; it's the journey that counts. They like being on their own, but love the company of like-minded people anytime! Wayfarers love to hang with the locals, make music in unusual places, and share stories. They're creative about ways to touch the world both on the home turf and on the road. Wayfarers are on the life-long odyssey of discovery with hearts anchored in Faith, Hope and Love.

About the Author

Hello, my name is Janielle, a 23 year-old muso based in Melbourne. Join me on my unpredictably audacious quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, use music to inspire creative education, spark spiritual conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze passion for Jesus' mission of reconciliation through acts of justice, truth and compassion among the young & free. Being a nomad at heart, I find ‘home’ when I stay with people on the ground, encounter the culture & discover what life's like for others. One Life | One Love | One Legacy.
