“Last time I did this, I got stuck,” the high school sophomore told me as he prepared to climb the wooden ladder into our ropes course. “It took me half an hour to get down… but I’m not going to let that stop me today.”
I wandered, and I wondered. And along the way I’ve had some amazing experiences; I’ve seen God’s provision from day one.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
It’s a legitimate question. It’s fun to ask it of little kids graduating from kindergarten—firefighter, pro football player, ballerina. It’s important to ask it to teens considering where to go to college and what to study—entrepreneur, engineer, graphic designer.
But it’s a question that’s just as important for you and me to answer because it inspires us to dream—to step out of the comfort of who we are to become who we were meant to be.
And of all the things I learned this week, one truth continues to resonate in my soul: I am right where God wants me… at least for now.
