Doing the Unexpected

I think it is funny and God's infinite humor that I have the life I do right now. I work in a ministry touching the lives of singles. Growing up I feared the "singles" group. They were the outcast of the church... now... they are my life. My thoughts and actions are constently centered around singlehood. I am excited for singles and want to see them change the world.

Monday I got pulled into a Women's ministry brainstorming session. I wasn't totally adverse to going, but again... it is not somewhere I expected to be. Growing up in the church I felt the women's ministry was always over run with married women (like my mom) who met and planned everything. I was blown away how the women in this meeting really cared and wanted to reach out to younger women. I, as a younger single woman, was not just another voice... I was a loud voice. They listened and did not stop asking questions. I never thought I would be so excited about women's ministry. But it should not suprise me... I have been in women only small groups for 11 years now :)

Just continue to pray though as I balance all this new found passion. :)
