During movie club tonight we watched one of my favorite classics, The Princess Bride. During discussion time one of the questions was, â€œHave you ever had something inconceivable happen to you?â€
A few years ago the idea of doing the World Race was inconceivable to me. There was no way I could imagine being able to raise that much support. I could not fathom myself being adventurous enough to survive such a journey. I would also never call myself a good enough Christian to be a missionary. It was all beyond what I could imagine.
Then it happened. It was terrifying. It was exhilarating. It was miraculous. It was more than I could have ever conceived because it wasnâ€™t really my idea. It was Godâ€™s. Trust me I spent a great deal of time arguing with Him over the issue.
Now I find myself living in Ukraine. I still feel like the wrong person to be a missionary half the time. I still wonder at how God provides and my less adventurous side prays… A LOT!!
Again I find that even in the middle of living this life it is more than I could imagine… the good, bad and beautiful of it. Why? Because I serve God and His thoughts are much larger than mine ever could be. So while this is all inconceivable to my mind, I rest knowing that God is in control and He is, after all, the hero of the story.
