A New Adventure

I love Steven Curtis Chapman's song "The Great Adventure" The lyrics are so true in that it says, "Come on get ready for the ride of your life" I laugh sometimes because we have what we think is our plan for the future and God already has it written and it is and has always been the right path, whether it was our plan or not.

Having said that, I am starting a new adventure, as I call it, at Women of Faith. This week I have begun training in my new position: Event Planner. I have been a Volunteer Coordinator for 2 1/2 years and at first when the position was posted, I just walked by not forcing myself to look at it so I wouldn't have to make a decision whether or not to apply for it. I really wanted it but of course, that would mean change (yes, the C word). With many people's encouragement and an overwhelming peace that is only from God, I applied, interviewed and they offered me the job.

Am I excited? YES! Am I nervous? YES! But it's the good nervous of there is so much to learn but so excited about being in this new position. I'll still be traveling about the same amount, maybe a little more and am looking forward to stepping into a leadership role. I'm thankful for this opportunity God has given to me and we will see how it all goes!

I'm thankful for the support of my family and friends! I'm on my way to Shreveport today to shadow the Shreveport Event Planner. There's so much to learn and I can't wait to soak it all in!

I never thought in a million years I would be an Event Planner...but God knew. He always knows and has the best laid plans for us!
