I had a great time last night at a dinner with some old friends.
One of them is heading to Peru in a couple of days to join the Peace Corps.
This got me really thinking about this stage of my life.
This dude is heading off to a country thousands of miles from home to live for 27 months straight.
What am I doing?
Well, I am starting work, starting a family with my wife, and wanting to change people’s lives, but I’m not heading to live with a blanket.
This reminds me of a topic that was touched on last Sunday at St. Marks by Felicia (I haven’t heard the message itself-but I have heard a great story of how it impacted my dad).
Instead of just intending to do something, do something.
I feel like I have been getting ready to get ready … and maybe that is exactly what I am supposed to be doing in my life right now, but I am getting juiced up to explode.
Again-maybe I need even more juicing, but dang it’s difficult sometimes to continue to wait.
There seems to be a difficult balance between acting and waiting that yields the most efficient and effective results.
For me, I’m trying to find this balance and am getting ready to get ready to do something big.
Only time will show, but stay tuned-I’m going to need your support (in whatever way you are lead).
But for now, I am going to actually focus on getting ready to act instead of getting ready to get ready for who knows if what I am getting ready to get ready for will ever even come…
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Are you getting ready to get ready or are you getting ready to act? What is the plan/action?
