i don't know if "out of the box" is necessarily a good phrase. most people think of it as someone who thinks of nifty things that contribute somehow to their organization or brainstorm. but when it's a way of life, living outside of the "box", questions arise.
have you grown up?
have you thought of how your five children fit into that plan?
and how do you expect to make that happen?
is that a cult?
what if it doesn't work out?
are you spilling too much of who you are?
how does your mom feel about that one?
is it safe there?
where is that at?
you fill in the blank. it isn't difficult.
sometimes we wish we could grow up and simply be normal. be satisfied. be content. not daydream about an rv trip across america. checking out oregon.. why? dunn know. planting a church. running an orphanage. or maxing out every credit card application we receive to distribute it in Africa. come on.. that's a good one, isn't it? how long would it take to find us tucked away in some hut. it's like our own version of robin hood. too bad the problem itself isn't the least bit amusing.
so what do you do when you put two people together who enjoy dumping apple sauce on each other. whose dreams are so often themselves, and they spend hours sorting out the which dreams are in the plan of their God.
see we have very light understanding so often. seems when we have it all figured out, it is all of us. and "us" isn't the plan we're after. but there is one thing we are so very confident in, that is the light of men.
only His light is worthy to follow.
