It started with a question about arm wrestling.
B (from the dining room): Hey, who do you think would win in an arm wrestling match?
Me (from the kitchen): Knowing Teddy is sick, you would.
B (as I walk back into the dining room): I mean between you and me.
Me: Oh. Well, considering my dominant arm is weak due to an injury and I’d have to use my left, probably you.
B went on to interpret for Teddy about my fall from the horse. He added my stories about three car accidents and then B added the Kenya airport fire and the earthquake in South America. Teddy, with a surprised look on his face, said that God must really have a plan for my life after all that has happened to me. (all this explains why my body is punishing me as well!)
Made me think back to talking recently with Abel and laughing that I was like a cat with 9 lives, I just don’t know how many I have used up yet nor do I want to count! (Also had to explain in sign language about this American saying!)
But it’s true, God does have a plan for me. Sometimes I think I know what it is but He hasn’t fulfilled that yet. But each time I start something new that I didn’t really expect at all, it’s been the right fit both work wise and with the new friends and family I meet.
If you’re looking for a conclusion to my “God’s Plan for my life” you won’t find one. Why? Because life is an ongoing journey. While His overarching plan is for me to serve others and follow whole heartedly after him, the different chapters in this book are always changing but always an adventure.
So I ask you, what is God’s plan for your life? He has one, for sure. While you may not know the whole plan I’m sure you know the current one and I encourage you to follow it whole heartedly. Enjoy life to the fullest while loving God and loving people.
