God is a God of surprises, and that is one of the truest statements you will hear.
You can have everything planned down to a T, and something will happen out of the blue that absolutely changes everything.
I think with the utmost certainty that what God has called me to do is to serve and do missions; I’m sure that is obvious to anyone who has followed this blog for any amount of time at all.
The thing is, I can plot, plan, blog and tell everyone that I am going to do missions for the rest of my life, but the fact of the matter is that I have no idea what will happen tomorrow, much less anytime after that.
I am not trying to discourage anyone away from the mission field, quite the opposite actually.
My hope for this blog is for each person who stumbles across it to think about keeping his or her options open. Be vulnerable to the places that God might take you.
If there is anything that I have learned throughout this freshman year of college, it is that the things that God has planned for us are so much larger, so much better and so much cooler than anything we could ever pick out ourselves.
Feel this idea out. Maybe you will start to see it the way I do, too.
Also, if you feel even the slightest inkling to serve somewhere, do it.
It could be just what you need to change your life.
We may not know where we are headed, but rest assured that we are held in the hand of a God who knows what He is doing.
