The Unexpected

“There have been a slight change of plans…”

Plans change, people change, the weather changes. I mean, it was shorts weather less than a week ago and now there is frost and possibly snow over every plant and tree! Needless to say, things change. And even if we plan extra hard. Even if we pack extra sunscreen and chips, the sun just might be too harsh and the chips just too stale.

But you know what doesn’t change? God.

Despite all the craziness going on in this thing called life, we can trust that the Lord won’t change. Ever.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and ending, saith the Lord, which is, and was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Revelation 1:8

No matter if we feel down at the bottom of a cliff or on the highest mountain in the world, God is never changing, never failing, and never ending. The Lord will never abandon us, even if we cannot feel the Holy Spirit surrounding us.

God is the beginning, the end, the Alpha, Omega, and literally everything. (Cue song)

Despite all the unexpected things that happen on a daily basis, we can trust in the Lord. And that is something we can rely on.

Our Omnipotent God

For this upcoming summer I had two possibilities:

1) A two-month long training program for living as a Christian in the real world.

2) A two-month long mission trip where you go to different different sites and are basically a student leader to a bunch of high school and middle schoolers.

Both required an application. Both required a deposit of about the same amount. Both seemed like great opportunities to grow in my faith.

Both were at the exact same time. Well…
