I just watched the first episode of the new television show Touch on Hulu. I was pretty blown away.
I do alot of random things and, most of the time, I have no clue why. I believe that God has a plan and knows all the connected events of the universe in a way that my mind will never fathom. So I try not to think about it too much. I just do it. Thinking about it imposes my will or my preconceptions onto it, and that’s how I could easily screw it up.
Last week’s sermon was totally different than the one I had planned. I worked hard all week on a sermon and felt led to scrap it at the last minute and talk about telling a good story with your life. I don’t know why. I just felt like God wanted me to. Because of that, I know I did the right thing. Something will come out of it that I’ll likely never know about.
I met with Sensei Nelson Melendez this morning and had a great talk with him about his martial arts lineage and his philosophy about martial arts training. He teaches Goju Ryu Karate-do near my house. He gave me a couple of business cards. I only need one for myself. I’m going to drop the extra one in a random goodie bag here at church that we give away to visitors.
Who knows? Maybe someone will get it, start training, and avoid being raped. Maybe a kid will get it and build the self-confidence needed to avoid being bullied. I’m going to stop wondering about it and just trust that something great will happen, that I’ve done my part of the thread that’s supposed to play out. I’m going to trust God, because my job is to do His will and leave the rest up to him.
How about you? Is there something completely random that you’re supposed to do today?
