It’s been almost 2 weeks since my last blog. Yesterday my step day asked me when I’m gonna blog again. Not sure why he asked that but I can only assume it’s because he’s having Ridiculouskatie withdrawals and needed a fix of my written awesomeness. 😉
It hit me in the shower this morning that it’s August 6th. Aug 6th, so what? It’s Monday, big deal. Well today marks our 1 year anniversary in Austin, Tx. This is huge. We moved here 1 yr ago to be part of a church plant. We never thought we would leave San Angelo; especially to plant a church. Well it’s been a year and we’re still here, Revive Church is still here.
Revive doesn’t look how I thought it would. I thought we would have more people by now. I thought we would be at McCallum High School still. God has a plan and a vision for Revive and it’s different than what mine was. That’s ok b/c His is always better.
Is your life how you imagined it? Don’t worry, I don’t think anybody’s is. Have things happened that you never expected and knocked you off course? Here’s the great part, even though things catch us by surprise, they never catch God by surprise.
We’re you surprised when you peed on the stick and it was positive? When you went to work like normal and you got laid off at 10:30? Or how about when you your friends told you they were moving? How about when the doctor said it was cancer or when she said it’s triplets? We live our lives going along and in one moment, one phone call, one conversation everything changes.
Life doesn’t turn out like we planned. That doesn’t mean it’s bad; just different. I didn’t plan on moving to Austin; I planned on staying in my comfortable little life in San Angelo. But no matter where I am or what I’m doing I believe that God knew this was going to happen. Things that knock me down and send me into an emotional meltdown don’t phase Him. And for that I am grateful.
Thanks for allowing me to share my world with you…welcome to my brain.
