Many of you may be wondering what “gypsy faith” means exactly. Don’t worry; you’re not out of the loop. It’s a term I made up when trying to describe my life. The dictionary definition of the word “gypsy” is described as a traveling person; a free-spirit. While I am not truly a “wandering” woman, I am a follower of God. While I was raised a Christian, it was only recently that I have truly, completely given myself to God. I have become a gypsy of my faith, meaning I am going wherever I see God calling me. Whether that be to going on trips with new people or moving across the country, after several years of trying to plan out my life I have finally realized that ultimately, it’s all out of my control.
Now, for some people this is a rather terrifying thought. To them I say: Have faith. If you are reading this and you also feel that your life isn’t going the way you want, then I challenge you to become a gypsy of faith as well. The way I see it, the worst thing that could happen is that you realize it’s not a lifestyle for you. Or you could realize that there are such big plans for you in this world; bigger than anything you could ever imagine. How is this possible? Because you haven’t yet completely given yourself to God.
So what do you have to do? Pray. Right now. Ask God to use you in any way He needs to spread His message and love to those that need. Pray that he will reveal to you your path and guide you through any challenges you will face. Now, wait. Keep your heart open to God and eyes open to opportunities. Whatever you are being called to do will become so clear, you can’t miss it as long as you remain aware and open.
Travel safe, gypsies, through this crazy journey we’re all on.
