I love it when God arranges meetings. It happened to me today. I went into a restaurant for lunch. There at a table for six were five people, one of whom is from Bethel. “Hey, why didn’t you invite me to this party?” I say.
“Pull up a chair,” they say.
I eagerly join them. We fall immediately into spirited conversation. They are people who know the Lord and love him. We have that in common.
After just a few minutes it was clear to all of us that God had arranged our meeting. We laughed and we cried. I encouraged them. They encouraged me. There was joy. There was fellowship. God arranges cool things.
I’ll go wherever he sends me. I trust him with my life.
I had my day all planned out. Nothing went as I planned. God had other plans and they were good.
When our youngest was small and she saw us getting ready to go somewhere she would chirp, “Where we goin’ where?”
I just want to live the rest of my life that way.
I look in my Father’s eyes. I can tell he’s getting ready to go somewhere and do something… I just want to say, “Where we going where, today Lord? Wherever you are I want to be there.”
Well, I need to turn in. I need some rest. God has plans for me tomorrow. I’m not sure what they are but I know they are good.
