I’m sorry that I haven’t posted anything in a while, but a lot of weird stuff has been happening in my life lately. One of those things is that I got rear-ended on the way home from Young Life Club. The trunk of my car is smashed in and the taillights are both busted. Everyone’s OK, but I can’t say the same about my car. But you know what? It lead to something really awesome.
I’ve been really annoyed with how unnecessary dealing with the insurance has been. I set up a meeting to have an estimate done by an insurance adjuster and I was a little upset that I had to be awake at 7:30 in the morning. I haven’t woken up before the sunrise in two years. So I waited for the insurance guy to come and we looked at my car. While he was waiting for a price on some part of my car or something (I have no idea what was going on) he asked me about the Young Life sticker on my car, saying he knew it was something of a Christian organization. So I explained kind of what I do as a leader, and he asked me where I went to church up at school. He told me he knew someone who goes to my church and it turns out it’s my friends fiance. I love how small the world is. But wait, it gets better. He asked me more about Young Life and we ended up sharing our testimonies. My insurance claim took an hour and a half, but we were talking about Jesus, so I didn’t mind. He gave me some tips on ministry and it was all really encouraging.
As someone who generally sees the bright side in every situation, I had a lot of trouble finding it in this one. But I think I just did.
