I had a friend visit this past weekend. She drove several hours in order to spend a few with me/us.
I’m so in awe of her courage and determination. She had a rough start to her trip; her GPS sent her into an area she really didn’t want to go and it set her back a bit in terms of time. But she pushed through and followed the guidance in spite of where she was.
I have seen her do that in other ways too. Every time God sends her in a new direction, it’s a scary one. He pushes her into places that she doesn’t want to go and for very good reasons. But she follows His plan for her. She is obedient to Him. I have seen her wrestle with it, seen her struggle with the why’s and the what for’s, but every single time she takes the step into the unknown and comes out victorious. She inspires me.
I’m so blessed to know her. And even more blessed that she followed through and traveled to visit me. I’m humbled to think that she chose to take a step into the unknown, yet again, and visit me even though we’ve only known each other a short time.
I want to be like her. She is my hero.
