My friend was frustrated. She staged an event and the manager of one of the acts at the event got all selfish, acting like they were the only act that counted. The manager was in my friend’s face about what needed to be done for his band.
My friend was so angry and overwhelmed she wanted to blow.
But in a way that surprised even her, she decided to just stop and not push and to walk away and trust God. She didn’t know what would happen.
In the end the manager’s attitude caught up with him, and it turned out great without my friend blowing and she was so glad she chilled.
That’s a dot.
A week later she was sharing about an upcoming family trip and one family member who was always contrary and divisive. My friend was apprehensive about what would happen in the time they would be together.
She was told,
Uh, didn’t you just learn something about chilling and trusting and not depending on your own ability to make things work? And didn’t that turn out in a way that you could not have engineered yourself?
You could see the wheels turning.
She forgot to connect the dots.
Can you relate?
