About 14 hours ago I sat in the library writing my #LibraryThoughts. I had something I had to do on the computer today while I was there, experienced some technical difficulties, and didn’t have as much time as I would have liked. I’d had a thought knocking around in my head that I wanted to share and even had decided on a picture I was going to post, but once I started typing it took a different direction. I even made a new picture to go with it.
After the library, we all prepared to load up and leave at noon for Nashville and the Vasayo event with the founders of the company. First off, I’ve never been to anything like this (clarification: I’ve been to a lot of this type of event, this was different) where the evening is opened with prayer followed by recognizing our veterans followed by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Glory was given to God through all of the stories of how the founders of this company have come to this place. It wasn’t “preachy” or in your face or down your throat…but definitely genuine. As they spoke of their journey and the ideas and plans they have for the future of the company, I kept being reminded of my unintended post from hours before. They both spoke of different points in life where they were broken and brought to their knees and crying out to the Lord that if a particular thing at the time was the path they were to take, then they can’t do it alone and they would need Him. Now here’s the thing….they asked the Lord for the strength to do what they needed to knowing they’d have to rely on a strength outside of themselves. Now it comes back around to this morning…they didn’t get up and sit back and wait to watch God work. (Now, they didn’t say those words.) No, they got up and got to it. This morning as I made that post about the desires of your heart, I was asking what you plan to do about it. What are your dreams and what are you going to do to make them happen? I certainly don’t claim to have all the answers, but I know the One who does. I’m not sure what it’s going to take to get where I’m going, but I know I’m in the right place right now. I’m tired and rambling and hoping I even make sense at this point. One day this post will come up in my Facebook Memories, and I have a feeling it’s going to make me smile.
I’ll put a link to the other post in the comments.
