So I spoke in High School Chapel last week and you know how sometimes you really don't realize what you're saying might have an impact? That was kind of how I felt. Honestly, I got up there and was just like, "Ok, God. You and me. Speak through me because if it's just me I will sound like an idiot."
I told my story of how I had grown up just knowing I'd be on Broadway and that that had been my dream but how in my last year of college, God closed that door. I wanted to be famous. I wanted my name in lights. But God had other plans. So I just told that story and said that if I had let myself and my dreams get in the way of God's plan, I wouldn't be at BFA and I can't imagine myself anywhere else.
Yesterday, I went to my mailbox and got a bill from the school (woot woot) and a letter. It came from a student that I've just recently gotten to know and it literally took my breath away at how eloquently she wrote. But here's just some of what she had to say:
"Thank you so much for sharing how God worked in your life last chapel. It was a great encouragement to hear how God always gives His children something better than they may ever expect...Your testimony was a wonderful reminder and a great proof of how God truly is faithful and how His plans are so much greater than what we can imagine..."
