About a month ago, the itch started increasing to the point that I began thinking it was an urging from God. So, I began to ask around and see if there were any guys I knew who would be interested in something similar to what I was thinking. Right around then, I started experiencing some level of doubt. Even though I really wanted to be a part of this healthy spiritual practice, is it really wise considering I'm actively searching for a job (which will more than likely require me to move)?
So I thought and prayed for about two weeks on it. In the end, I came up with this question: Which would I regret more; remaining guarded and "safe" and not opening up to anyone until I land where God wants me, or opening myself up to others (risking the pain of deepening relationships only to leave them) knowing it was temporary? I decided I would regret inaction more than action.
As a result, I extended an invitation to seven other guys (four of whom accepted) and our group was formed. Editor's Note: I'm thinking of calling us The Wolverines.
I decided a while back that I wanted to purposefully begin to make choices that gave me more life. Being a part of a group of guys like me does that.
We had our first meeting last night at Chili's and, I have to say, I'm beyond stoked for where God could take this. None of the other guys that are involved are exactly like me, so I'm sure I'll be learning a lot from their different perspectives.
I'm sure I'll be writing future posts on things that inspire me from this...
