Comfort Zones and Surprises

So it’s the day before Los Angeles. Excited? Yes. Over the moon with joy? Yes. Feel like you want to throw up? Yes. This has been the dream forever. I remember seeing the Leadership teams come back from Romania and Jamaica and Mexico when I was in elementry school and thinking “I want to be just like them someday.” And here I am, just like them. It feels weird. A good kind of weird, but still.

Right now, you can kind of feel the excitement in the air. It’s like everyone is getting ready for someone to walk into their surprise party. That’s what LA’s kind of like right now, a surprise party. I get the gist of what’s going to happen but at the same time I have no idea. I’ve looked at the itinerary and seen everything that’s scheduled but who knows what’s going to happen?

I think that that’s the beauty of following God. I’ve got my plans and God’s got His. His plan’s are always better and I guess that I’m going to have to remember that in the next couple of hours.

There’s this C.S. Lewis quote that I’ve grown to love over the past couple of months,
“He’s not safe but He’s good. He’s the king, I tell you.”

There’s nothing sure about God or His plans for you. He’s not safe, there’s nothing about God that keeps you in your comfort zone. The best things that have ever happened to be happened when I just gave up my expectations and insecurities, threw my hands up and said “God, just put me where you want me to be.” He’s the King and He’s got these next couple of days covered. I just remembered this song we used to sing when we were little “He’s got the whole word in his hands, he’s got the whole worrrld in his hands” I think in God’s hands is a very good place to be.
