When I moved back to St Cloud and Calvary, both where I grew up, I prayed that God would give me just 2 friends that I could feel comfortable hanging out with and would include me in their plans. I'm so glad God didn't do what I had planned for myself, but instead chose what he had for me. It has been infinitely better, but also harder, than I ever would have though it'd be.
God brought three very sweet Muslim girls into my life. We do anything together- shopping, Starbucks dates, making food together, Chipotle runs- ALL the time, or just hang out. We're just doing life together. As I've gotten to know them better, I've been able to ask them questions about where they are at religiously and spiritually and not feel worried about embarrassing myself or seeming intrusive. It's been a blessing getting to know them, and I cannot wait to see what God has planned for down the road!
