God is so good, guys.
On Thursday night I met up with my small group and told them some of the planning I still need to do before I go to South Africa this summer. By the time the meeting was over, I had an idea on what to do with my car for 2 months, where to move before I go, and someone to talk to my family about South Africa! Those were my biggest concerns- the things with which I was struggling the most. These ladies just stepped up to the plate, no strings attached and problem solved with me. They met me right where I was, without judgement, and selflessly offered their perspective, insight, and resources. When I told some co-workers at lunch the next day, they were amazed at how quickly everything is coming together. They were impressed by my ability to pull it all together in one night.
All I could do was thank my Father for His provision. It is humbling. It is illogical. It is loving.
I’m thankful for the doors He is opening. For the ways He has planned for this to happen. For the leader He is.
