Willing to Go Anywhere

Sometimes things change in a matter of minutes.

See, I had this idea. This exact idea of where I was going, how my life would look, where I wanted to end up. I tend to plan. I’m a planner, a big-picture person. I like to look far, far into the future and say, “that’s where I’m going.” This is great except for one little problem. The details. You know the old saying, “the devil’s in the details?” Well nothing could be more true for me. I always overlook the details. I always forget one small, crucial aspect of this or that, which usually drastically changes everything. Every time.

But sometimes, it’s the very details that lead me in a new, better direction than I thought I needed to go. And that’s what is happening for me right now.

And it got me thinking… Am I willing to go where He wants me to go? Am I willing to do what He wants me to do? And most importantly, do I get out of the way enough to make sure I’m following HIM and not my idea of him? See, that’s how it is that God knows me better than I know myself. He lets the details be the thing that gets me back to Him. (Perhaps I should change the phrase to: “The Lord is in the details.” haha) I’ll get this grandiose vision for what, who, when, how, and why. And He, perfectly, every time, reminds me that HE is in control. HE has the vision. HE directs the course. At least, that’s what I asked Him to do. 🙂

So my friends, I want to encourage you. Dream big. Let your mind wander. Think of things you would never dare. Let your imagination run wild. And then let God take you where He wants you to go. Let Him show you what about your dream was worth having and what was not. Let Him shape your destiny. It’s worth it, I assure you.

Dream on, my friends.
