It's astonishing when you fly how many people you come into contact with. So many people who have story's and lives that are unique. I haven't had an opportunity to delve into any of these conversations yet, but I still have two flights to go. I did have a nice conversation with a TSA fellow when I asked him if he ever layed down on the conveyor and had someone run him through the bag scanner. (To answer your questions if they do that, it seems as if they don't. Now you know)
Back to my thoughts on so many people. When looking out my window on the plane, I saw so many cars, businesses, and homes. So many people. So many people who are just living for the sake of paying the bills and going on vacation. So many people who have no true spiritual purpose and just live for the sake of living. Isn't their more to life than that?
Yesterday Amanda and I watched the movie Woodlawn. If you haven't seen it I encourage you to go. It is powerful. It is convicting. (It made me cry like a baby). Woodlawn stresses that each of us has a purpose and gifts that only come from God. It's powerfully displayed through the true story of a young black football player who gave it all over to Jesus.
So as I fly over all these houses and rub shoulders with hundreds of people in airports and on planes I anticipate being able to share my life with them. I know that God has orchestrated who I will sit beside and that I can have a small part in their lives. So many people and it takes all of us to share the love of Jesus with them all. I gotta go because I am boarding in 15 minutes.
