Young Life was good tonight. It was not a big deal at all, but I felt a little left out. After the leaders and staff have dinner, Tom & Josh(YL Staff) go over the evening’s activities. They would go over everyone’s role, and I kept feeling left out. For instance, they did little skits that the leaders acted out. At one point, Tom was sitting right across from me and he was like, “ohhh we just need one more person for this part”…….. looked right at me, and then chose one of the other guys. I don’t know if I just need to speak up more, and say out right, INCLUDE ME. Or if I just need to let more time go by and allow the staff to see how much I want to be included by my actions and interactions with the kids. I suppose time really will tell.
When I got home from Young Life, I had a great phone conversation. I feel comfortable saying that Lauren and I definitely are interested in each other. But one thing that is important to me, is to wait. There is no hurry, and in past relationships, when I tended to rush into things, they failed miserably. This is what I need to do. Trust that God is in control of all things, RELATIONSHIPS INCLUDED, and just be a man of God. I have a feeling, that if I practice this, well things will just fall into place.
