At the time, I was really struggling to TRUST God and what He was doing in my life, so that was on the key they gave me. I have held onto this key for a long time. Partly because it's taken me a really long time to finally give up on my own plans for my life, and accept that what God has in store will be far better than anything I could have imagined. But I've also kept it because of how much it meant to me that this group of kids did something so incredible for me. I think I've been waiting for just the right person to share it with.
Recently I had a conversation with a friend. She is about to take a huge leap of faith and mentioned that she needed to leap...and trust. I knew in that instant that she would be the recipient of my key. Unwavering trust is never easy, but it is worth it. I am so grateful that I got to learn that lesson. I know I'm blessed because I get to share that lesson, and that truth, with my friend through sharing a part of my heart and my life with her.
