God brings you to places in your life that most of the time as christians we question. 
(seriously, why are we always questioning GOD? )
He puts us in situtations (perhaps uncomfortable ones) to lead us places.

About 3 years ago i walked into a brand new fabric store with a frappichinno in my hand
And one of the best friends i have ever had by my side. We walked in ( no children ) and it was glorious. I think the sky may have opened up and angels started to sing.
As we were walking around fondling fabric Jen's phone rang.
We had to leave the fabric store immediatly and run back to her apartment. Her refrigorator had broken and the landlord was replacing it, right then. We emptied the old frig and awaited a new one to load back up.
Anyway, after a while we did get to return to our glorious fabric shopping. I think we both purchashed some amazing amy butler on that trip and some heather bailey nicey jane. (i could be wrong)  this was my first visit to the store. Jen, moved away.... And i continued to go into this store, weekly. It was one of those places that you could just go and talk to like minded people. A community.  I got to know the owner Beth, and the lovely girls who worked their, Emma and Kourtney. They became friends. Anyhoooo, the reason i am telling you all this is because in 2012 some ladies wanted a place to have a Modern Guild to meet and beth very generously offered her store as a place for these meetings to happen once a month. Beth told me about it and i went. Now i will tell you something you may not know about me. I do not enjoy going places i dont know anyone. I feel awkard and uncomfortable and i just dont like it. If i have a friend with me irs a completely different story, but i did not know a soul. God placed me there to meet some incrediable ladies whom i have become very good friends with, some of them very close friemds with.
Exactly where i sat amoungst all the women there was exactly appointed by God. I did not know it but i was surronded by believers. I think it may have taken 6 months or so of getting to know them and realizing the woman 4 of us are christians. It has been lovely getting to know them.
Anyway, i just want to encourage you to do things that are out of our comfort zones. Good, amazing things are coming for me. Great things that i am so very excited to share with you.
Sometimes God pushes us in a direction thats uncomfortable. Go with it. You just might be able to look back 3 years later and see how God put in place amazing things just for you.
