Yesterday I shared this idea about handing over control to God and as promised today I want to share what happened.
First of all I was tested. I left my office with the intent of taking a one and a half hour drive. That of course turned into a two hour+ drive with traffic and what appeared to be a fire setting me off the route I knew. I made a turn to go around the incident only to discover I turned not onto another road but onto a rather lengthy drive into a school (Does anyone remember “No Outlet” signs? One would have been nice here.) Sadly I flunked that test, but I repented of my attitude and eventually arrived at my destination.
I prayed again and gave God control of the evening and a peace washed over me. Nerves became nervous energy which is infinitely better. I still wasn’t sure we could finish, but that was in God’s hands.
Well we finished (God even gave us more time than we had envisioned and the timing looked flawless as if we had choreographed it) and it looked great but that’s not really the biggest thing. I learned to collaborate and I don’t have to always be in control, but that’s not the biggest thing either. The biggest thing was when the speaker finished his message gave a call to come to Jesus and hands went up. In a small way God used me and my friends to touch eternity. Not too shabby. When you feel like you’re out of control, give God control. He will never let you down.
The video will go up soon, special thanks to Fourth Man Furnace, Sunday Obsession, Brian Neal, Chuck Kieffer and the Foundry church, Hair Kelly and the Forge at Widener University Sarah Kieffer for painting and Joy Kieffer for planning the whole thing.
