This picture is not from the event I was signed up for… At first, I showed up at the wrong party in the park. It ended up being a God appointment with an organization out of Connecticut called the CdLS Foundation. Soon after, I showed up at the wrong party again that was a family BBQ. Finally, I reached my friends at Hands & Voices for the right party. // I think God’s heart is that we never become too hurried to miss the little parties along the way. The temptation is to stay in our air-conditioned cars to observe from afar whether or not it is the right destination. I know His heart is that we see for ourselves who people really are. That we take the time to know people along the way and not stay focused on our own destination point. We have to breathe enough to pause, get out of the car and look around to see people. When we truly see people, we start bringing them along in our journeys as we press on. God loves detours of intentionality so we can invite people to the greatest party He offers… the Kingdom one.
