When it happens it seems like no big deal, right?
You decide to turn left instead of right.
You decide to go here instead of there.
You knock down more pins than you leave standing and claim, “Bowling is my game!”
You go out with him instead of him.
So, how did that work out? Was it no big deal? Or was it a big deal?
We all build our life story don’t we? It’s a Rube Goldberg.
At eleven he had a case of mononucleosis. At that time his Dad bought him his first guitar.
He learned to play. It took time, patience, and persistence. But eventually he got the hang of it.
Three years later at fourteen he wrote his first worship song. He sang for the Dawson McAllister Youth Ministries. Popular speaker Louie Giglio asked if he’d be interested in working with the Passion Conferences. He released his first national solo album in 2001: The Noise We Make.
He decided to turn left instead of right.
He decided to go there instead of here.
He knocked down one tune and then another and people said, “he’s an artist.”
Was this God’s plan?
For Chris Tomlin mono prompted his father to give him a guitar. Today he’s recognized as one of the top Christian Worship Leaders. What appeared as no big deal became a big deal.
Listen carefully, God is busy creating opportunities for your life.
This is how you become who you become.
