Ready to Testify

I'm at the tail end of the book of Acts in my morning Bible read. It's the part where Paul's journey gets really funky, and author Luke clearly relishes the recounting of the funkiness. Who could've predicted what adventures Paul and gang would end up in?

As someone who is a meticulous planner, such a chaotic and spontaneous itinerary unsettles me. It also reminds me that wherever Paul ended up and in front of who, he was always ready to testify.

Life's too complicated to string out more than a few steps in front of you. So it's a lost cause, even for meticulous planners like me, to predict where we're going to be and in front of whom. I just hope that, like Paul, wherever it is and whoever it's with, I too will be ready to testify.
