It’s the spring of 2010, and I am in a meeting.
I don’t understand most of the words being said in the meeting.
The people saying them are smart, talented and incredibly nice.
But I am in the wrong place.
This was years before writing Quitter. Years before I’d ever hold the Start Conference and help other people close the gap between their day job and their dream job.
I’m stuck in a cubicle, and I am asking God the same question over and over.
“Do you see me God?”
I’m fairly certain he does not. If he did, he’d realize he has given me a different passion. He has set my heart toward other things and, yet, I am in the same place.
I feel invisible to him.
Three ridiculous years later, I have learned one thing about God.
The most frustrating and beautiful thing is that God doesn’t do early.
He only does right on time.
Try as we might to force his hand, he will not be rushed. His will cannot be sped up. His plan can not be microwaved.
He does not do early.
He does right on time.
When you’re in the meeting, that is frustrating.
When you’re looking back, years later, it is beautiful.
I wish it weren’t so, but God refuses to keep my calendar.
