Stuck

I’m heading off for a short trip again this week (more great Orange leaders to meet) and as soon as I got into terminal three at Pearson, saw that might 3:30 flight got canceled.  So I’m stuck here at the gate until the next plane goes out over the dinner hour. 

I was thinking about how I would have reacted to that five years ago versus how I react to it these days.  Today, it didn’t really bug me.  I was surprised. Five years ago, I would have gone somewhat ballistic inside and shown at least handful of sparks and smoke on the outside. That just didn’t happen today. My biggest concern was being able to get down there tonight since I’m speaking tomorrow and thinking I could have been hanging out with Toni and the kids during the delay…but the delay didn’t trigger me like it would have just a few years ago.  That was refreshing.

So I’m sitting here catching up on stuff, thinking about communicating at Connexus on Sunday (big message), and giving thanks that little by little, God is changing me. Still very grateful that God is better than we think He is, and thankful that He continues to visit and change very ordinary people. Looking forward to what God continues to do in me and in you.

    Thanks Carey for your comments in "Big Questions". In my experience, and I have been ther several times, I have found that God does not answer "Why" questions, He says "Trust me". It is not easy to understand why this should happen to Cindy and her family, but God says "Trust Me". Out of seeming disaster He can bring ultimate good. Our prayers and love continue to go out to Cindy and family.

    I too would publicly like to give thanks to a God who patiently continues and continues to visit and change ordinary people like me and will forever be grateful for his amazing grace. Have a safe journey home Carey.

    Man, great words. I am so thankful God keeps changing me little by little. I don't deserve it, but he keeps doing it.
