Kansas City Here I Come...
Yep, you read that right. The week after next I will be travelling to the lovely Kansas City (well, I've heard it's lovely anyway, never actually been there myself!) Anyway, I'm pretty excited about it because we've been talking about it at my work for the past TWO YEARS. (Suffice it to say that no one makes many quick moves around here, but at least we're making sure all the pieces are together before we go.)
Now, my mom is not nearly as excited as I am about this because she totally hates planes. I mean HATES. She refuses to ever fly, and I'm pretty sure we'd have to knock her out like Mr. T if we were ever to try to get her on a flight. She claims the verse, "Lo, I am with you always as her own." Only she spells it "L-O-W". I should really talk to her about that adding a jot or a tittle (or a "W" in this case) to the Bible thing.
In all seriousness though, I think this is a place that God has brought me in my life. See, I've always wanted to travel. Always. And this year, I'll be spending much of my time travelling here, there, and everywhere for my job. First stop, Kansas City.
And you know what I think it is, God cares about the desires of my heart (Psalm 37:4). He cares about the little quirks that make up a North Carolina girl named Heather Smith. He cares about my dreams and my wants. He is a PERSONAL God.
That isn't to say He gives me every little things I want, but He loves me enough to allow some of my dreams to come true as long as I'm in His will. And He loves my mom enough that I KNOW He'll give her peace when it's time for me to step onto a plane many times over the next several months.
What are some of the dreams of your heart that God has allowed to come true?
