I was brought to South Hills by a good friend of mine who I’ve known for a long time two weekends ago, and that morning was definitely one of those roadblocks that I paid attention to. Good start. I felt great. Walked away feeling empowered for my week and focused on God’s agenda. I went to V2 the next Sunday, and miraculously found a group of people who I’ve known for a long time and feel completely at home with.
Yesterday evening, our Small Group had our first meeting and I have never felt more at ease with a group of people in my life. It was like I was finally where God had guided me to be.
What are we doing with our time? Are we living for ourselves? Are we seeking our own satisfaction? Because if we are, we aren’t living as we’re supposed to. We are not “one heart and soul” and we don’t “have everything in common” … but we could be.
These questions and ideas hit me hard during my Small Group experience last night. Everything happens for a purpose, and sometimes people come back into your life not because of their own agenda, but because God is once again putting up well-placed roadblocks to guide you where He wants you (basically life with God is just one large ride on Autopia, but the finish line is in His arms).
Put yourself in His shoes. Discover what you’re meant to blossom into and follow his footsteps, his stop signs, and his roadblocks. They’re there for a reason, and I guarantee you’ll like the person you are if you let Him show you where you’re supposed to end up.
I’m starting to.
